As the former manager on the General Motors Company, under the Cadillac subsidiary, Henry Leland built the Lincoln Motor Company together with his son, Wilfred Leland in August 1917. The first plant of the company was built at Detroit, Michigan, particularly at the 6200 West Warren Avenue.
The company was named directly after the 16th President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln, who was Henry’s hero and personal presidential bet. On the initial process of the company, the Lincoln Motor Company first got its revenues from the assembly of Liberty aircraft engines as a contract with the US government for World War I utilization.
Right after the war, the Lincoln Motor Company started changing their tools and equipment to make way for the manufacturing of luxury vehicles. The Ford Motor Company then bought the company in 1922, but the Lincoln group continued to stand as a solo company until the 1940s.
