Coupe
Coachwork: LeBaron

Despite the lingering Depression, Lincoln continued to focus on its high end market, albeit a quickly diminishing one. Only 1,411 Lincolns were sold in 1935 – on two wheelbases and divided among 20 different body styles! More than 80% of the production sold that year, were standard models.

One of the more popular body styles was this two/four passenger coupe by LeBaron (note the rear rumble seat). An option available to Lincoln owners having the chassis painted the same color as the body. This was done on this Lincoln – in Brewster Green. This Lincoln cost its original owner just under $5,000. It is one of 23 Lincoln ‘K’ 2-door coupe’s by LeBaron built in that year.
