Inspired by his 1938 trip to Europe, Edsel Ford and designer Bob Gregorie created a custom car with a sophisticated "continental" look. When Ford drove the car in Florida the following spring, friends were so enthusiastic that he put the design into production. The Lincoln Continental remained in production through 1948, but the prototype was destroyed.
