Different by Design

The Ford House hosted a 4 day celebration to open their newest exhibit "Different by Design: The Styling of Edsel Ford. This exhibit brings interactive displays, fascinating audio recordings, historical images, and an abundance of information will bring these remarkable icons to life for visitors of all ages.

"This is an important exhibit for Edsel and Eleanor Ford House," said Kathleen Mullins, president of Ford House. "It brings to life a lesser known part of the Ford legacy by highlighting Edsel Ford's eye for style and design."

"Different by Design: The Styling of Edsel Ford" has been created to capture Ford's design influence on the objects around him. The stars of the new exhibit are three of Edsel's personal automobiles; each one featuring his specific customization. Edsel Ford's eye for design played a significant role in the automotive styling revolution of the 1940s and beyond.
