Edsel Ford was Henry Ford’s only child. From the very beginning Edsel Ford had a flair for designing and after a trip to Europe in 1932 asked Ford’s Chief Designer Bob Gregorie to make a car similar to what he saw in continental Europe.
Gregorie took the Ford made Model 40 model and went to create something that America never saw before. He used an aluminium body with low down door opening, enclosed radiator and fitting a 75 hp engine. Headlamps were positioned very low as the chassis was lowered giving the look of a very long car, an illusion deliberately created. He named it Model 40 Special Speedster.
Edsel Ford however could use this personal car only for six years, before he died in 1943, at a young age of 50 yrs.
