Edsel Ford had the best seat in the house as the birth of the automobile unfolded before his eyes. The only son of Henry Ford, Edsel possessed a strong mechanical mind and, like many of his peers, was already tinkering with cars and even building his own automotive creations at an early age.

By 1919, when he was appointed president of Ford Motor Company at the age of 25, Edsel had already established his reputation as an industry leader and savvy executive. At the same time, his personal dream and easy-going nature had won him the affection and respect of Ford employees.

Edsel Ford's greatest contribution to the automotive industry was his ability to combine the artistry of custom design with the functional requirements of mass production. His passion involved the look and feel of the car, the position of instruments on the dashboard, the configuration of accessories, as well as the vehicle's style and shape. His ability to discern an ordinary line from a classic one made him one of the most talented (and under-appreciated) design directors of his time.

When Edsel returned from a trip to Europe he asked Ford designer E.T. 'Bob' Gregorie to create a one-off convertible that would be 'thoroughly continental.' Working directly under Edsel's guidance, Gregorie executed a custom design based on the Lincoln-Zephyr platform.

Edsel Ford took the custom cabriolet with him when he wintered in Palm Beach, Florida that year and it created a sensation everywhere he drove it. When a production version of the Lincoln Continental was introduced, it created an equally sensational response, becoming a favorite of Hollywood stars, design aficionados and celebrities. Today, Edsel Ford's Dream Car is on display as part of the 'Different by Design' exhibit at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores.

This 1941 Lincoln Continental cabriolet was built in the Lincoln factories on December 4, 1940 for Edsel Ford, painted in Mr. Ford's favorite color, a special order Pewter Grey. It was personally driven by Mr. Ford.

For the 1941 model year the car was now known as the Lincoln Continental instead of the Lincoln-Zephyr Continental. The Continentals were essentially custom-built on the Zephyr chassis and were powered by the 292 cubic-inch, 120 horsepower, Zephyr V-12 motor.

The car was in Edsel Ford's garage when he died on May 1943.
