A stunning example of the luxury cars produced by Lincoln Motor Co. in the 1930s, this Model K Sport Phaeton was owned by Helen Clay Frick. The car's hood ornament, or mascot, is a leaping greyhound. Initially used to cover a car's radiator cap, hood ornaments quickly became a way for owners and automakers to personalize and identify their vehicles. Animals were a popular choice, including lions, horses, rabbits, and all manner of birds. Lincoln's greyhound, selected as a symbol of stamina, elegance, and speed, first appeared in the mid-1920s.
