1926 Lincoln Model L Dietrich Collapsible Cabriolet

1926 Lincoln Model L Dietrich Fully Collapsible Cabriolet Left Front Quarter with Top Up

A rare and extraordinary motorcar featuring coachwork by the renowned Ray Dietrich, Inc. One of two known examples from 1926, sold new to Jack Warner of Warner Bros. fame. Impeccably restored and finished to an award-winning standard. Undoubtedly one of the finest early Lincolns extant.

After many years in the renowned Cars of the Stars/Movieworld Museum in Buena Park, California, the Lincoln came into private ownership and underwent a meticulously researched nut-and-bolt restoration. The project was completed around 2009, and the results are nothing short of spectacular, with impeccable finish quality and detailing. Presented in a handsome two-tone livery of burgundy with black fenders, this Model L boasts tremendous presence. The black painted Rudge-Whitworth wire wheels wear polished trim rings and centers to give it a purposeful, subtly sporting stance. Bright trim and fixtures are all restored to concours standards and beautifully finished. Typical of Ray Dietrich’s work, the coachwork is clean and minimally adorned, with no fussy details or extraneous trim to spoil the lines. Accessories include dual side-mount spares, a Greyhound mascot, front wind-wings, and a trunk rack with a covered trunk. For the rare rainy day in Los Angeles, the driver’s compartment can be enclosed via a temporary soft top with matching side screens.
