In 1954 Edsel Ford handed control of Ford Motors to his son Henry Ford II. Anxious to bring Ford back into the modern era, Henry the Second hired Italian Gian Paolo Boano to construct a one-off show car on a new Lincoln chassis and this was the result – the stunning 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis.

After the Indianapolis was shown in Turin, it was sent to the United States where it was consigned back to Henry Ford II. After using it as his personal car for more than a year, it is believed that Ford gave the car to his friend, Errol Flynn.
