Cars of "The Great Gatsby" era

The car: 1923 Lincoln L-Series Sports Phaeton. Hagerty's take: Immediately upon Ford's acquisition of the Lincoln Motor Car Co. in 1923, Lincoln gained recognition as one of America's top luxury brands, thanks to vastly improved styling. Powered by a 90-horsepower, V-8 engine, more than 20 body styles were offered in 1923, including the very stylish sport phaeton that accommodated as many as four passengers yet retained a sporty appearance.
