The design processes for the post-war Lincoln began in 1944 for their introduction in 1949. In 1952 the whole range was restyled with Lincoln receiving a new V8 giving 160bhp. Their styling was reminiscent of the Mercury but it was clean and pure and the refinement was to a very high level. Over the following years the cars were steadily but unobtrusively improved, being voted the µSafest car in America' in 1955. The Continental of 1955 was introduced for the prestige market. Dramatic changes occurred with the change to unitized construction in 1958 and the incorporation of the Continental as a production model brought the total of models available up to 10. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, technical and specification data, model introductions, competition, driver's reports. Models include: Cosmopolitan, Capri, Continental Mk II, III, IV, V.
