This 1952 Lincoln Capri upholds its cool and premium cruiser image
with classic details like its drop-top style, V8 power, and
continental kit on the rear. And the color combo inside and out has
the perfect tone for a 1950s cruiser.
Lincolns just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene.
After all, a car like this is a rarity. 1952 was the debut year for
the Capri names, and there were only about 1,200 convertibles
produced. Newport Gray is the factory-correct color. The
porcelain-like style looks premium, especially with the gloss it
has. And there's even more glow from the brightwork. Those bumpers
prove they are true chrome kings as they intricately hug the car's
form. As you look closer at this convertible, it even gets the
details right with the full-length sweeping side trim,
factory-style wheel covers, rear fender skirts, and whitewalls. And
where there was no Continental car division at Ford this year, this
one upholds the tradition of the company's highest echelon with a
continental kit on the rear.
Blue and gray go together nicely when done right, and this one
really shows it. It's in the unique blue roof, and when you take it
down, there's even more appeal with the two-tone blue upholstery.
It's a great vintage set up with everything from an artful
dual-spoke steering wheel to a hint of tuck and roll pattern in the
seats. It's a comfortable setup that includes full carpeting, a
finished trunk, a rear armrest, and a proper convertible boot. But
the best cruising feature has to be the power windows. It means you
never have to leave the driver's seat to take down all the side
glass, and they were even recently serviced to keep them working
Under the hood is something special. This was the dawn of the
Y-block that would make cars like the Thunderbird famous. This 317
cubic-inch displacement was one of the largest offered of its time,
and part of why these Lincolns became hot rod favorites. But this
one keeps a more traditional style with the classic green block,
unique exhaust manifold, and Lincoln-script valve covers. And when
you do go out for a drive, the Hydramatic automatic transmission
and power brakes make this classic an easier cruiser.
Premium and rarity come together in a Lincoln drop-top you're going
to love. And at a price like this, you know this total package is
irresistible. Call today!!!
