1947 Lincoln Continental
Inspired by Edsel Ford, who was the head of Ford Motor Company’s luxury car division following the acquisition of Lincoln from Henry M. And Wilfred C. Leland in 1922, the first Continental was designed for Edsel’s personal use in 1939. In 1939, Edsel drove his Continental around Boca Raton, Florida, where he was stopped so many times by wealthy people requesting to buy a car like his, Edsel decided to put the Continental into General Motors, now one of the world’s largest corporations. The car was purchased new by Doctors C.N. and Jess Scott, Veterinarians of Mound City, Missouri. Only 750 total were produced.
