Lincoln History

1929 Lincoln Model L

Share on:

This Lincoln was purchased new by H. Rigley Bullock of New Jersey and shipped to Locke & Co. in Rochester, New York for the fitting of custom coachwork. Mr. Bullock used the car daily to drive to work from his home in New Jersey, through the Holland Tunnel and into New York City's financial district. Because of the depression, he deleted the Lincoln logo from the radiator shell (which he painted black along with the windshield posts), removed the Greyhound radiator cap and replaced the wire wheels with painted wooden wheels of an earlier Lincoln - all to make it appear less ostentatious.

He later used the car at his summer home of Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts. As he grew older he developed cataracts and the bright trim work bothered his eyes. He had the trim painted black with a brush to reduce the glare. The current owner acquired the car in 1972 from Bullock's niece, who inherited it upon his passing.
