It started with aircraft engines
Lincoln Cars Among the first luxury cars on the market. They were the first cars that were associated with Corporate America; most prestigious business professionals were often seen riding to work or home in a regal-looking, classy Lincoln car.
The history of Lincoln cars dates back to the World War I era, when in 1917, a certain Henry Leland, along with his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August of that year. Lincoln, as one might have guessed, was named in honor of the famed president Abraham Lincoln, whom the elder Leland revered as a hero in his youth; he voted for him when he was 21 in 1864.
Originally The Lincoln Company made aircraft engines, which was subsidized by the Ford Motor Company, to support the war effort. But after World War I ended the following year, the Ford Company went back to producing autos, which put the Lincoln Company in sort of a financial slump. Ford purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in 1922, but Lincoln managed to function as a separate entity from Ford.
Among the earliest legendary models that the Lincoln Motor Company produced in its heyday were such autos as the 1926 Lincoln L-Series Town Car, The 1931 Lincoln Model K and The Lincoln K-Series Le Baron Convertible Sedan, produced in 1938.
By 1940, Lincoln was brought under the umbrella of Ford, becoming known as the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company. But no doubt, what later came to define the legendary Lincoln Car series was the legendary Lincoln Continental, which came to define luxury autos forever. Introduced in 1940, it became a top-tier luxury auto that was in high demand, especially in the Corporate World. As was indicated at the onset, the Lincoln became the car that virtually defined Corporate America; it was the car that businessmen wanted to be seen driving around in.
Between the years 1945-1960, the Lincoln Continental under some modifications; they became more compact and sleeker in appearance, for instance, a trend that has continued up into modern times. Today, Lincolns continue to be manufactured; they are a lot more sleeker and aerodynamically designed than they were in previous years, but they are as popular as ever.
