In 1938 the window sticker price of a new Ford or Chevrolet hovered around $600 to $800. However, for those fortunate few with means, a 1938 V-12 Lincoln K-model LeBaron convertible roadster was available priced at $5,300.
One such Lincoln originally painted a sporty yellow with optional dual side mounted spare tires rolled out of the factory on 7.50x17-inch white sidewall tires.
Where the handsome Lincoln spent the next 74 years remains a mystery. What is known is that the car received careful attention with most of the original parts remaining. The black leather cushion has been reupholstered and the original yellow paint has been resprayed with a deep maroon color accented with red pinstriping.
