One of 4 fantastic Lincolns offered for the first time from the Hank Harper collection. The Lincoln was an automobile of grandeur. Rightly indentified in automtive history as the "Master of Precision" its creator Henry M Leland was 75 years old when he and son produced their first automobile. Leland won historic claim to fame as a supplier of engines to Ransom E Olds, the creator of the first Cadillac in 1903. Under Lelands Presidency, Cadillac won the 1908 Dewar trophy in England, introducing its self starter and all electric system in 1912 and 2 years later the first American 90 degree V8 automobile engine, produced in quantity. Lincoln did not endorse the concept of model years explaingin "There are no yearly or periodic Lincoln models; the Lincoln has reached such a state of development that drastic changes are neither necessary or desirable".
