Pictorial History of the Lincoln Car Poster, 1952

Summary

Thirty years of Lincoln styling are presented in this poster, from the company's early designs under Henry Leland and Wilfred Leland, to the marque's renaissance under Edsel Ford, to its first post-World War II models. Many changes are shown, but none is quite as dramatic as that between the staid Model K of 1935 and the streamlined Zephyr of 1936.
