    “Introduced at the 1955 Turin Motor Show – the Lincoln’Indianapolis was badged as “An Exclusive Study by Boano Torino.” The futuristic design was inspired by jet aircraft of the day. The result was a flamboyant, bold and yet elegant. Its orange color certainly made it stand out!”

    “Henry Ford II had just recently taken control of the company from his father and was anxious to bring the company into a modern era. He supplied Boano with a Lincoln chassis and asked for a show car to be produced. Introduced at the 1955 Turin Motor Show, the Lincoln “Indianapolis” was a futuristic design – flamboyant and bold. The result was stunning – it was finished in bright orange with a black-and-white checkered interior. The “Indy” was sent to the United States and later, Henry Ford II gave the car to his friend Errol Flynn.”
