Let's Roll

Our Collections team has rolled in the stars of Driven by Design! Three of Edsel's one-of-a-kind vehicles have been transported and installed in the new Visitor Center exhibit.

The cars will be the main attraction of Driven by Design, which will launch at the opening of the new Visitor Center this spring. In this brand new exhibit, visitors will learn about Edsel's impact on American automotive design and his collaborations with Ford auto designer E.T. "Bob" Gregorie. You can get an up-close look at the game-changing 1939 Lincoln Continental prototype, the stylish 1932 Ford Model 18 Speedster, and the racy 1934 Ford Model 40 Special Speedster.

Carefully moving the antique cars from historical collections storage to the new Visitor Center was a big undertaking, but all the vehicles arrived safely under the watchful care of our fantastic Collections team members.

We worked closely with the designers at Luci Creative who created this amazing new exhibit. It will include interactive elements, historical video and more.
