Coachwork: LeBaron
Henry Leland founded Lincoln Motor Company in 1917. Leland had previously started the Cadillac Motor Car Company in 1903 from the remains of Henry Ford's second failed attempt to start an auto company (Henry's third attempt resulted in the Ford Motor company we know today). Leland's Lincolns were very expensive and well-built, but stodgy in design. Ford Motor acquired Lincoln in 1922 and Edsel Ford, Henry's son, used his natural design instincts to lead Lincoln to build beautiful, luxurious cars. With Ford's backing during the lingering depression, Lincoln was able to continue its focus on the luxury market.

All Lincolns were powered with a 414 cubic-inch V-12 engines producing 150 horsepower. By 1937, sales of the Lincoln K, introduced in 1931, had dwindled as the era of big V-12 and V16-powered luxury cars was coming to an end. LeBaron only built 24 of this model in 1937 and this is one of six known to exist.

The color of this car is the original Canal Gray selected by LeBaron. It is equipped with a radio, rare for this era Lincoln. It is not equipped with side mounts at the direction of Edsel Ford who wished to give the car more gracefully flowing lines. The car was found in pieces in the back of a tired old body shop where a previous owner had the 'vision' to make it into a street rod. A full-restoration was undertaken to the most authentic standards possible.
