The public can get a sneak peek for a sneak peek of the 1939 Lincoln Continental prototype during the annual Father’s Day Eyes On Design car show.

Ford House, aka Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, has given the press a preview of its new exhibit planned for the visitor center set to open in the Spring of 2020. It will also include a new restaurant, museum shop, rental space, classrooms, and exhibit galleries in Grosse Pointe Shores, MI.

Three rare vehicles never shown together will be the centerpiece: a breathtaking1939 Lincoln Continental prototype, the 1932 Ford Model 18 Speedster and 1934 Ford Model 40 Special Speedster. These three vehicles tell the story of Edsel Ford’s role in bringing design to Ford Motor Company.

“We added the 1939 Lincoln Continental prototype to our collection in 2018, and this exhibit will be the first time in history these three vehicles will be in the same room, let alone at Ford House,” said Mark Heppner, president and CEO of Ford House.
