The onset of the Great Depression sent car manufacturers struggling to find a way to stay in business. The producers of the luxury and exclusive vehicles felt the most pain. The small group of people who could afford the stately vehicles dwindled in size. Those left with the means to purchase one often avoided the option, some believe it was due to public opinion and perception. The manufacturers that had a wider range of vehicles available for the wealthy, middle-class, and the poor were better able to compete.

Lincoln vehicles were tailored to the wealthy. During the Great Depression, they suffered. Financial backing from the Ford Motor Company helped them through this difficult time. Edsel Ford championed their product line and was a big supporter of the Lincoln vehicles. Their powerful engines and attractive bodies were truly impressive. Many were clothed by talented coachbuilders such as LeBaron, Dietrich and Brunn. This example shown was bodied by the Brunn & Company and is a testament to the quality and their art. It is one of the few remaining Lincoln convertible coupes bodied by Brunn. The 1935 model year was the final year for the wire wheels and flowing fender lines.

Hermann Brunn of Buffalo, NY founded the Brunn and Company in 1908. His reputation began to grow and as time progressed, became renowned for his quality and style. His son, Hermann C. Brunn, later joined the business after an apprenticeship at Kellner in Paris. The company had a long and prosperous career that lasted until World War II. Hermann C. Brunn continued his career at Ford working in their design department.

At the RM Auctions in Meadow Brook of 2006, this vehicle was estimated to fetch between $175,000 - $225,000. It found a new home at $231,000.
