In 1922 Henry Ford purchased the failing Lincoln Motor Car Company from Henry Leland which allowed Ford to compete in the growing luxury car market of the affluent 1920s. With its powerful engine, good handling and rugged chassis, the Lincoln quickly became popular among wealthier Americans. The car also became a dominant part of the official White House fleet starting in 1924 during the Coolidge administration. This Lincoln carries a custom seven-passenger body by Locke and Company of Rochester, NY. An early version of the modern �tilt� steering wheel is found on this car. Called a �fat man�s wheel,� it pivots out of the way to allow easier access to and exit from the driver�s seat.
