In 1954 Lincoln tapped a tiny Italian coachbuilder to see what the future of automobiles might look like. A few months later, just in time for the 1955 Turin auto show, they delivered this: the Indianapolis Coupe. Rumor has it that when Henry Ford II finally laid eyes on it he outright bought the car from his own company just to make sure that he could drive it whenever he pleased. The car then caught the eye of legendary playboy actor Errol Flynn, who convinced Ford that he needed it more than him. Ford obliged.
