The History of Lincoln
Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors,
and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August,
1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for
whom he cast a vote in 1864. Lincoln's first source of revenue came from
assembling Liberty aircraft engines, using cylinders supplied by Ford Motor
Company, to fulfill World War I government contracts.
After the war, the Lincoln factories were retooled to manufacture luxury
automobiles. Ford Motor Company purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in
1922, but Lincoln continued to operate as a somewhat separate company from
Ford through early 1940. On April 30, 1940 the Lincoln Motor Company became
the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company
At the direction of Henry's son Edsel, in 1923 several body styles were
introduced, that included two- and three-window, four-door sedans and a
phaeton that accommodated four passengers. They also offered a
two-passenger roadster and a seven-passenger touring sedan and limousine,
which was sold for $5,200. A sedan, limo, cabriolet and town car were also
offered by coachbuilders Fleetwood, Derham and Dietrich, and a second
cabriolet was offered by coachbuilder Brunn.
As the brand grew it developed several memorable vehicles, the Zephyr, the
Continental Mark II, the Lincoln Continental and recently the ubiquitous

Featuring a standard V8 engine, body-on-frame design, rear-wheel drive and
large exterior and interior dimensions, the Town Car was based on the
Ford Panther platform. This gave it powertrain and suspension commonality
with the Mercury Grand Marquis and the Ford LTD Crown Victoria (later the
Crown Victoria). This design made them durable even in the rough conditions
taxi and livery cars are subjected to, and easy and cheap to repair when
they did suffer damage. Town Cars are typically operated in commercial
service for at least 400,000 miles.
Its large dimensions made it the largest car in production in North
America. From 1997 to 2011, the Town Car was the longest car (but not the
heaviest) built in the Western Hemisphere, measuring nearly 18 feet (5.49
m) in length for a standard Town Car and 18.5 feet (5.64 m) for an L
Lincoln is also believed to be preparing a true Town Car successor on a
rear-wheel drive platform to rival the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-series
The Town Car underwent a minor exterior facelift for the 1995 model year.
Changes to the exterior included smaller, clear headlights as well as
additional running lights in the rear. Larger door mirrors were
body-colored (formerly chrome), and were moved slightly forward on the door
itself. Updated bumpers front and rear, new body side moldings, and the
deletion of the small fixed window in the rear doors completed the exterior
changes. The antenna was removed from the outside of the car and integrated
into the rear window.
1995 also saw the introduction of a new steering wheel, which was used in
all Panther-based sedans from 1998 to 2004. In addition to the cruise
Also introduced in 1995 was a new digital dash layout (replacing the unit
used since 1993) that featured a more italicized look to the readouts,
while the exterior temperature readout moved from the dash cluster to the
climate control panel. A "miles to go" trip computer feature was added.
Dual power recliners with lumbar support—as well as a three-position
driver's seat and mirror memory function became standard (formerly
optional) on Signature Series which could be assigned to the keyless entry
remotes as well as the up to four personal keyless entry codes. Heated
seats were a new option, and door panel switches now featured (slight)
illumination from a lamp located below the interior door handle. Power door
lock switches were back-lit, and were mounted high up on the driver and
passenger door panels. The fuel door release (previously mounted in the
center dash panel) and trunk release button moved from inside the glove
compartment to the lower driver's side door panel. Similar to the previous
year, Signature and Cartier models featured dual clamshell storage armrests
up front with cassette storage, coin holder, and an optional Cell phone.
The 1997 Cartier models held dual cup holders in the rear center armrest,
and offered lighted vanity mirrors in the headliner for the two outboard
rear seating positions.
With the demise of the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham after 1996, the Town Car
became the last of its kind: the last American full-size, rear-wheel drive
luxury car. The demise of the Fleetwood also made the Town Car the largest
mass-produced car available in North America.
