The long anticipated Lincoln Motorcar Heritage Museum, built on the campus of the Gilmore Car Museum, opened to the public on Saturday August 9, 2014. The all-new museum, patterned after a historic Lincoln dealership, was built by the Lincoln Motor Car Foundation, which was established in 1999 by members of various national Lincoln clubs and retired Ford Motor Company executives to share Lincoln’s living legacy.
Among the 20 automobiles that will be on display are a one-off 1939 Lincoln K convertible sedan built by LeBaron-Briggs for a North American tour by the King and Queen of England, an unrestored, original 1955 Continental Mark II and a Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance award winning 1928 Lincoln Judkins Berline. In addition to the amazing automobiles and memorabilia on display, another must-see artifact at the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum will be the “Lincoln Stones” – a large engraved limestone panel that was originally located above the main entrance of the Lincoln Administration building in Detroit. The lintels were recovered by the Lincoln Motor Car Foundation and have been on displayed at the Gilmore Car Museum since 2006.
