stainless steel showcars

Back in the 1930s, early stainless steel producer Allegheny Ludlum formed a partnership with Ford to show off their new, novel material. The result was a line of stainless steel showcars, starting with the 1936 Deluxe Coupe and ending with the 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible, with a '60 Thunderbird in between.

Examples of all three are extant and parked at the Crawford Auto Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Even cooler, Allegheny Ludlum is still around, and still has two running Continentals that it uses for special events.
