Town Car
Coachwork: Brunn
While this may look like a post-war automobile, it is not. It was built in 1940 for Edsel and Eleanor Ford. Brunn & Company built a town car body for the modified Lincoln-Zephyr chassis. The body design was so attractive that several additional automobiles were built for friends of Edsel and Eleanor Ford.

Edsel died in May 1943. After his death, Mrs. Ford continued to use the car. Following World War Two the car received a complete exterior restyling.

This car has not been restored. Over the years it has been maintained, to preserve as many original features as possible.
