The most expensive car Ford ever sold up til 1940, this 1929 Lincoln Aero Phaeton


Bodied by LeBaron and used for the glamour car shows of 1929 and 30, such as the Paris Auto Salon, and the New York Grand Central Palace in the following spring, then at the conclusion of the New York show, the Lincoln was sent on a tour of the United States, with stops in Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Los Angeles; San Francisco; and Seattle

At the Seattle show, it was sold to its first owner, the operator of a Washington state airline, for $10,000


It portrayed the aircraft theme in its wing-like front fenders and single tailfin.


According to the Tire Baron of Long Beach, this car in bare Aluminum took 4 days to polish


It won the Best Of Show at the 2017 Beverly Hills Concours, was shown at the 2013 Pebble beach, and will be in the LaJolla Concours this April 7th and 8th

if you think this is a bit odd, take a look at the 1927 Lincoln with the Judkins body http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/12/1927-lincoln-judkins-coaching-brougham.html
