How did he achieve this? He was chosen to become Richard Nixon's Vice President after his previous VP, Spiro Agnew, resigned due to corruption charges (surprisingly to me NOT due to the Watergate scandal). Coincidentally, this means Gerald Ford was never elected as Vice President either. Anyway, when Nixon resigned due to the Watergate scandal, Gerald Ford, since he became Nixon's VP, was made President in 1974. He was President for two years and was up for reelection in 1976. Ford lost the race to Jimmy Carter, thus making Ford the only President to have never been elected as President.

Never thought about it but he did rock a receding hairline pretty well.
