About LMCF

The Lincoln Motor Car Foundation is committed to collecting, preserving and sharing the heritage of the Lincoln automobile. This is the spirit of the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum. The Museum will house the Lincoln motorcar archive, with displays of Lincoln automobiles and memorabilia. It will be also the hub of the Foundation’s educational and outreach programs.

America’s passionate love affair with the automobile continues to inspire new generations. This is confirmed in a variety of ways, including the formation of affinity clubs. These clubs allow enthusiasts to share their interest and passion in a particular brand or segment of the industry, past and present. The Lincoln automobile has inspired the creation of four major affinity clubs:

Lincoln Owners Club
Lincoln-Zephyr Owners Club
Road Race Lincoln Register
Lincoln and Continental Owners Club

For many years, these clubs have been independently active in promoting the Lincoln brand, preserving the Lincoln heritage and vehicles, and sharing the passion and knowledge of their members with others. Now, in order to increase their preservation and educational activities, the four Lincoln clubs, along with other friends of the Lincoln brand, have incorporated a public educational foundation to pursue a three-phase program. The LMCF Mission Statement:

Our mission is to collect, preserve, perpetuate, display and disseminate to the public; information, hardware, memorabilia and vehicles related to the history of Lincoln Motor Company and Lincoln Motor Cars. The Foundation operates the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum on the Gilmore Museum campus located at Hickory Corners, Mich. and provides public access to the Foundation's extensive Lincoln Motor Car documentation in the AACA Library located in Hershey, Pa.
