In 1935, officials at Allegheny Ludlum Steel Division and the Ford Motor Company collaborated on an experiment that resulted in the creation of stainless steel cars that would be a tribute to stainless steel, one of the most dynamic metals ever developed.

Allegheny Ludlum, a pioneer producer of stainless steel, proposed the idea of creating a stainless steel car to Ford, leading to the development of a 1936 Deluxe Sedan, that later became the centerpiece of a campaign to expose the public to the new metal and its many uses. Later, Allegheny Ludlum and Ford collaborated on two more stainless models, a 1960 Thunderbird and a 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible. Both of these amazing vehicles will be on display at the AACA Museum.
