In 1972, Ford Motor Company's Special Vehicles Engineering Department provided a new presidential parade limousine to the White House. Unlike previous limos, which either weren't armored or were armored after the fact, the 1972 Lincoln Continental was designed and built for maximum protection from the start. PPG Industries supplied the bullet-resistant glass that provided visibility with the needed level of security.
