Owned by Ford Motor Company, Lincoln has been making luxury automobiles for over 100 years. Named after Abraham Lincoln and founded by Henry Leland in 1917, Lincoln was purchased by Ford in 1922.
After World War II, Lincoln was paired with the Mercury division of Ford.
Lincoln’s first car was the Lincoln Model L. Equipped with a V8 engine, Lincoln’s aim was to compete with Cadillac and other luxury car brands. By 1923, Lincoln was producing over 8,000 vehicles, which were quite high for the time.
Consumers were buying up Lincoln’s various body styles during the company’s early history. Lincoln made a note of buyers’ inclination to purchase different styles and began introducing even more methods to suit the public’s interests.
1932 was a pivotal year for Lincoln when the company retired its V8 engine and introduced a V12. Sales of Lincoln cars continued to skyrocket when Lincoln released its Zephyr model.
Since World War II affected Lincoln and other luxury car manufacturer’s business, Lincoln ended up being reorganized by Ford into the Mercury-Edsel brand in 1956. Soon after 1956, the Wixom Michigan Factory opened up that handled most of Lincoln’s production until 2007.
1956 continued to be an instrumental time for Lincoln as the band released one of their flagship vehicles, the Continental. The two-door coupe styling of Lincoln Continentals featured white-wall tires, chrome trim, as well as a spare tire on the trunk’s lid.
Continentals were extremely expensive at the time of their release, around $90,000 in today’s figures. Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds were the only cars that rivaled Lincoln Continental prices.
Modern era Lincoln efforts were aimed toward building more SUVs as models such as the Navigator became increasingly popular. 2009 featured the release of Lincoln’s MKS, the company’s first full-size sedan since the 1980s.
