For Sale - A Real Barn Find - 1930 Lincoln Sport Phaeton Stored For 45-Years

Recommended Posts

The rare opportunity offered here is a car from a family that has summered here in Vermont for over 80 years. This unrestored Lincoln with aluminum sport phaeton coachwork featuring dual windshields was purchased in New York City in 1938 by John B. Butler Jr. from James Gregory's Used Car Exchange on Broadway in New York City. The original bill of sale has survived.

 

Soon afterward the Lincoln made a family trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon and return in the pre-World War II days. It was brought up to Vermont from New York City post-war and left on the family farm for use during the season and stored during the winter.

 

The second and third generation continued to use it until the grandfather died in the early 1970s. It was last registered in 1971 and then put away in storage in 1972. At that time the engine was oiled, the car was carefully covered and stored up on jack stands.

 

Opportunity knocks and this a rare opportunity for someone to acquire a reasonably priced full classic car that can be recommissioned and left largely as is, in its last used state. The only change needed would be a set of canvas seat covers.

 

Vintage cars in a unrestored condition have always been widely admired and are highly sought after today and more popular that fully restored cars. A carefully stabilized and conserved car in this condition will be with be a major attraction at both concours and tours for the lucky new owner.

 

This desirable and attractive Lincoln Sport Phaeton is reasonably priced at $48,500 and you can learn more about it and see many photos at The Old Motor.com

That's an extraordinary find! Someone's really going to have fun with that car, both getting it back into shape and enjoying it. Please don't let them restore it!

Glad to hear many of you are enjoying viewing this car, it's quite special and the long 75 plus years family ownership is something that is almost unheard of these days. I am open to reasonable offers on this car. View many more images and all of the details here.
