Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1954 Lincoln Capri! Lincoln unveiled the Capri for the 1952 model year and it replaced the Cosmopolitan as their Premier Luxury car. The Capri name was derived from the Italian island of the Gulf of Naples. The Capri would see 3 generations up until 1959. Here we have a 1954 model, but this one is far from its original standing. The paint looks striking and was done by Jeff Nichelson. Its a Black Base, then Red Pearl, and then Red Kandy, all PPG. It really commands your attention. As you walk around it you can quickly tell so much custom work has gone into this ride. The great Gene Winfield help start this build off back in the early 2000s! She started life as a 4-door sedan and been converted to a 2-door Hardtop! Speaking of tops, the top has been chopped 5 inches! '55 Cadillac Headlamps were sectioned into the front fender, is sporting a '55 Lincoln Grill and '56 Packard taillights were chosen. Ford Aerostar springs lowered her down in the front and the rear is dropped 4" with blocks. Inside the '64 Oldsmobile lipstick red leather interior contrasts well with the exterior, looks sharp and is in nice shape. Once your eyes move past the seats you can't help but notice the skull sitting atop a Torque Wrench Shifter. She has a custom-made console, Bluetooth Stereo in Dash, and Custom Upholstered Trunk. Under the hood is a 302ci V8 backed by a C6 Automatic Transmission. The odometer is inoperable. Current owner has had her for over 20 years, acquired from a private owner.
