This 1954 Lincoln Capri upholds its cool and premium cruiser image with classic details like it's two-tone style, hardtop profile, V8 power, and automatic transmission. Plus, as you dig a little deeper, you'll see some nice investments to keep it ready to hit the road today.
Lincolns just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Ford's lineup, these upper-level Capri two-doors were offered exclusively as hardtops, and this one really showcases that style with a distinctive cream roof against the red paint. And all that extra brightwork surrounding the pillarless profile really makes you take notice, too. And speaking of brightwork, those bumpers prove they are true chrome kings with a shine so mirror-like that the ladies will use it to check their makeup. As you look closer it this coupe, it even gets the details right with the full-length sweeping side trim, factory-style wheel covers, rear fender skirts, and wraparound rear glass. It's truly a premium Lincoln.
The pillarless hardtop lets people get a good look inside, and so the red continues for a vivid presentation. These Lincoln coupes has plenty of style, and the factory even would deliver a hint of the popular tuck-n-roll design. So we're excited to see a solid investment in the upholstery to keep this stylish setup that also feels far fresher. The red is joined by a nice black that appears on the door panels, carpeting, and headliner for a well-done total package. Plus, the hint of champagne gold on the doors that follows onto the dash is the kind of premium touch you expect from a Lincoln. The whole dash is a classic work of art, right down to the working heater controls and the AM radio that's still on display. And that classic dual-spoke steering wheel has the kind of vintage grip to give you instant nostalgia.
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 the time. It's a powerplant worth talking about, and so they also made sure it was ready to show off with the distinct green block, golden air topper, and matching Lincoln-script valve covers. And this one is for more than just show. You'll also notice upgrades, like an electric choke, upgraded ignition, and an alternator. It makes for a strong and smooth motor that's ready for the open road. And when you do go out for a drive, the Hydramatic automatic transmission and power brakes make this classic an easy cruiser.
Premium and vintage come together in a Lincoln coupe you're going to love. And at a price like this, you know this total package is irresistible. Call today!!!
