The Entrance Hall was the first car built by Henry Ford and current models of the Lincoln-Zephyr, Mercury and Ford V-8. The "Road of Tomorrow" was a ride which took the visitor through the other areas while viewing the exhibits and murals depicting the construction of the highways of tomorrow.
Ford's display was divided into four main sections – the Entrance Hall, the Industrial Hall, the Garden Court and the "Road of Tomorrow."
The stainless steel Sculpture of Mercury by Robert Foster floated over the main entrance to the "Ford Exposition". Foster designed the U.S. Petroleum Industry stamp (Scott 1134) of 1959.
