Lincoln Aftermarket Grilles

Named after President Lincoln, this luxury division of Ford has been building cars since the 1920s. One of the company's most popular models, the Lincoln Town Car, made its debut in 1922, and was followed by the Lincoln Zephyr and the first Lincoln Continental in the 1930s. The latter was substantially updated in the 1950s and renamed the Continental Mark II, and after being redesigned once again in the early 1960s, served as President Kennedy's limousine during a fateful day in Dallas, Texas. On a brighter note, the Lincoln Continental, with its convertible top and suicide doors, also served as the vehicle of choice for the Delta brothers of "Animal House."

That classic film starring John Belushi hit screens in the 1970s, as did the Lincoln Continental Mark IV and Mark V; a somewhat smaller Mark VI arrived in the early 1980s, with the yet smaller Lincoln Mark VII cruising onto dealer lots a few years later. The svelte Lincoln Mark VIII, which represented the last of the production Mark cars (not including the ill-fated Lincoln Mark LT pickup truck developed years later), was offered in the 1990s. It was also during the 1990s when the brand released its first SUV, the large and luxurious Lincoln Navigator, a rugged vehicle built on the backbone of the Ford Expedition.

As Lincoln Grilles exited that decade, a slew of new vehicles were on the horizon, with some selling nicely at Lincoln Mercury dealerships and others, well, not so much. The rear-drive Lincoln LS was well received but never grabbed a substantial audience, a fate that was shared by the Ford Explorer-based Lincoln Aviator. Executives also decided to launch the Lincoln Blackwood, a pickup of sorts built from the Ford F-150, though its shallow, lined, and covered bed lacked the utility of a traditional truck. Sales were disappointing, to say the least.

Looking forward, the face - or at least the size - of Lincoln may be changing. If the Lincoln C Concept is any indication, the brand may be working on delivering big luxury in a more compact package. Visitors of a dealer's showroom will also find the Lincoln MKZ sedan (formerly called the Lincoln Zephyr) that represents a more upscale interpretation of the Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan, and the Lincoln MKX, which does the same for the Ford Edge. The Lincoln Aviator and Lincoln LS are no longer produced.
