One of just eight cars to wear this gorgeous Convertible Victoria coachwork by Dietrich. Meticulously restored, shown at Pebble Beach and presented in beautiful condition.
This 1929 Lincoln L is a truly stunning example and one of just eight cars to wear this fantastic Convertible Victoria coachwork by Dietrich. A sporty and elegant car, the Lincoln was reportedly first owned by “Mr. Roberts” who an early celebrity hair stylist. By the 1950s, the Lincoln was discovered in a New York City parking garage, and by 1970, had been acquired by Ken Kenewell. Mr. Kenewell is a longtime classic era enthusiast with a particular fondness for these early Lincolns. In the 1990s, the car was treated to a meticulous restoration to beautiful concours standards and was shown at the 1999 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Also, it earned a CCCA Senior Premier award (No. 133), an AACA Grand National First prize in 1999, and is featured in Beverly Rae Kimes’ book “The Classic Era.”
Since its restoration, this car has been maintained in exceptional condition. Finished in handsome two-tone warm gray accented with red Buffalo wire wheels (an option in 1929) and dark red coach stripes, this is undoubtedly one of the most attractive and fascinating open Lincoln designs of the era. The paint quality is outstanding, with impeccable quality finish work and fine detailing. Chrome plating is also excellent, remaining in incredible condition since the restoration. The body is minimally adorned, with just a Greyhound mascot, dual side-mount spares, dual cowl lamps, and a fitted trunk for a clean and crisp look.
