They may have used a frame . . . although it may simply have been a reinforced unit-body - check on ebay, probably one of the many for sale there will have shots of the underbody. Lincoln only built them for about 10 years, though Mercedes had beaten them to it back in the mid-late fifties with the 300 "Adenauer" series - and that one most likely did have a separate body on frame construction - and of course the Benz did not have the suicide door configuration. Well prior to that the configuration was even a lot more common. I can't imagine that any of them would have been good places to be in a crash or that they would have been pretty to look at if they'd been hit with the doors open. I guess the whole car was one big crumple zone.
