As part of the Ford Motor Company, Lincoln has been a storied luxury brand for presidents, celebrities, and anyone who appreciated attention to detail coupled with power and performance. Founded 1917 by Henry M. Leland (who also created Cadillac), the brand was named for Abraham Lincoln, a personal hero of Henry Leland’s and the first president that Leland at age 21 voted for. Bought by Ford in 1922, Lincoln quickly made its way to the top of the American automobile manufacturers. Did you know, though, that the original emblem for Lincoln was a greyhound? Much later, Lincoln adopted a coat of arms with a red cross in the center and a knight’s helmet at the top, a symbol that eventually evolved into the framed, four-pointed star that everyone is now familiar with.
