1940 Lincoln Continental Mark I

In 1938, Henry Ford’s son, Edsel, came home from a trip to Europe eager to drive an American-made car with continental flair. Within an hour, Bob Gregorie, Ford stylist and former yacht designer, had a sketch. By the time Edsel was ready for his winter drive to Florida, so was his car, which was such a hit among the Palm Beach set that Edsel called back to Dearborn, Mich., and said he could sell 1,000 of them. The company actually sold twice that many. Source: Internet Source: Internet
