For Sale: 1955 Lincoln Capri in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The two-tone style inside and out makes this 1955 Lincoln Capri instantly attractive. Plus, you have some extra distinction with an exclusive V8, power windows, and true cruiser style. So if you're looking for premium, vintage, and's all here.

Lincoln has been a company only interested in serving the premium end of the spectrum, and so this Capri shows it off correctly. They would only sell a small fraction compared to their Ford siblings in 1955, but that's because the Capri didn't do anything for the masses. That's why the two-door version was exclusively a hardtop with no pillars around the side glass - and they made sure you had plenty of bright trim to highlight that! The two-tone has an upper-class kind of style with the creamy yellow body giving an added delicate feel to the body's curves. And the black roof has the gloss of a grand piano. And of course, there's the brightwork. The bumpers hug the car's form while also giving you classic Dagmars both front and rear. The intricate hood ornament, Lincoln crest, stock wheel covers, whitewalls, rear fender skirts, and full-length trim are all part of this authentic and attractive package.

The pillarless hardtop lets people get a good look inside, and so the yellow and black two-tone continues for a vivid presentation. The whole dash is a classic work of art, that works with the steering wheel to deliver an eye-pleasing symmetrical kind of style. The overall impression is a large space that has the right investments to be quite a comfortable cruiser. Plus, the power windows let you take down all the side glass of this hardtop without ever leaving the driver's seat.

Under the hood is something special. This was the dawn of the OHV motor era, and Lincoln's Y-block helped show the way forward for all cars under the Ford family. The Capri helped premier this powerhouse, but it was enlarged in 1955, and a 341 cubic-inch example like this is exclusive to the year. It's ready to show off with the distinct green block, golden air topper, and matching Lincoln-script valve covers that are pure vintage cool. Not only is this motor fun trivia for this car, but it's also a strong powerhouse that's ideal for cruising. And when you do go out for a drive, the automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes make this classic an easy cruiser.

This Lincoln gives you an authentic feel of premium vintage style that few others get to experience on this level. So if you're looking for a classic with upper-class distinction, call today!
