In 1970, the Secret Service commissioned Ford Motor Company to build a replacement for the 1961 Lincoln Continental presidential parade limousine. Ford based the new car on the 1972 Lincoln Continental sedan, but expanded the length and height for a roomier interior. Unlike standard Lincolns, the rear doors were hinged at the back. Large, bullet-resistant windows provided good visibility for the president.
