Lincoln Motor Company
The Lincoln Motor Company was founded in 1917 by Henry Leland who had already started up Cadillac. Cadillac was formed by Leland out of the bankrupt remnants of an earlier venture by Henry Ford which had failed. Edsel Ford persuaded his father to buy Lincoln in 1922 after it had fallen on hard times. Edsel nutured the new brand, ensuring it had style and that it matched Cadillac. In 1924 Lincoln launched the streamlined Zephyr to great acclaim although it was not such a success as an automobile. The Lincoln Continental put the brand more on the map when the first one was launched in 1939 to take over from the Zephyr. A later Lincoln Continental took President Kennedy arround Dallas on the day that he was shot.
