The Lincoln Motor Car Company was founded by Henry M. Leland and his son Wilfried in the USA in 1917. At first only aircraft engines were built. After World War I preparations were made for the production of luxury automobiles. The first Lincoln came out in 1920. For financial reasons, Leland sold the Lincoln plants to the Ford Motor Company. For Ford, this was the entry into the luxury car segment. These premium automobiles have in some cases brought more prestige than profit to Ford. The name “Town Car” was first used in the 1930’s for a luxurious version of a Continental sedan. It was a one-off naming, as the name disappeared again by 1971. The term town car became synonymous with US automotive luxury at the beginning of this decade. The Lincoln Town Car already offered electrically adjustable front seats, air conditioning, an extended wheelbase and other extras ex works, making it the luxury sedan of the beautiful and successful between Detroit and Los Angeles. Stylistic elements such as the “Opera Windows” (oval windows in the C-pillar) and “Headlight doors” (headlight flaps) belonged to the Continentals and Town Cars. A first downsizing, in response to consumer legislation requirements, began at the Continentals in 1980.
