1955 Lincoln Indianapolis by Boano

After World War II, Henry Ford II had just taken control of the company from his father, Edsel Ford. He was anxious to bring the Ford Company into a modern era and so, supplied Boano with a Lincoln chassis. Gian Paolo Boano designed the flamboyant and bold, but elegant concept. It was powered by a V8 engine that produces over 200 horsepower. There is a four-speed automatic gearbox, independent front suspension, and a live rear axle. A very thorough restoration was performed during the early 2000s. Much care was taken to preserve the car's original appearance and to follow Gian Paolo Boano's original designs. In 2006, it was sold for $1,375,000 at the Gooding Pebble Beach.
