A 1922 Lincoln type 118 limousine was recently donated to the museum by Larry Smith of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The car’s original owner was attorney Alfred E. Lucking, who served as legal counsel for the Ford Motor Company and the Ford interests as well as Henry Ford’s personal attorney, from 1914-1923. He represented Ford in lawsuits against the Chicago Tribune and the Dodge Brothers Company.
