1929 Lincoln Convertible Victoria

Summary

When Ford Motor Company bought Lincoln Motor Company in 1922, the luxury automaker's cars were well-engineered but not particularly attractive. Lincoln styling flourished under Edsel Ford's leadership. He worked with some of the industry's best coachbuilders to produce appealing designs that improved Lincoln's sales and stature. This 1929 Model L convertible, with a body by Dietrich, is a fine example.
