Peek inside FDR's flathead V-12-powered, armored 1942 Lincoln | Hagerty Media

In its latest video celebrating million-dollar cars, the Petersen Automotive Museum takes an in-depth look at President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's armored 1942 Lincoln, just in time for Presidents' Day. Petersen's chief historian Leslie Kendall gives this tour from the museum's Vault, where this Lincoln can usually be found surrounded by other cars that were used by various international heads of state.

I’m a fan of Lincolns and Mercurys. Very interesting video. Would like to see more regarding this vehicle.

Always liked that song by Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. Now there’s a cool name if there ever was one.

Speaking of the song, do we know who won the Hagerty/Sweetwater Hot Rod Lincoln contest? My entry seems to have been lost in the (e)mail.

Thanks for trying Sajeev, but I get "Invalid Parameters Specified" when I open the link with no clear path forward. It's not critical, I mostly wanted to know that someone won, and that indicates that it wasn't me. I can stop holding my breath.... -Dave
