Gain a deeper understanding of Edsel Ford’s passion for luxurious design and explore the impact of the partnership between Edsel and E.T. “Bob” Gregorie – Ford’s then-chief designer.

Get an up-close look at these mint-condition vehicles, and learn about the creative process behind designing cars, including the colors, fabrics, and textures.

The exhibit is free for all visitors and will be on display in the Visitor Center until March 26, 2023.
