Edsel Ford and E. T. Gregorie: The Remarkable Design Team and Their Classic Fords


Henry Dominguez


Dominguez has spent the past 20 years studying and writing about the Ford Motor Company. Here he characterizes the relationship between Edsel Ford and the company’s first design chief as that of patron and artist. He analyzes how each model of the early Fords, Mercuries, and Lincolns was designed, based on first-hand discussions with Gregorie. He includes many photographs of models, show rooms, groups of people, and production floors.
