“Lincoln took a step about 25 years ahead of its time in 1952, downsizing a high-priced car under the slogan “Designed for Modern Living.” Gone was the enormous 1949 body, and the new cars was shorter and narrower than the 1951 models. The public was slow to adjust, however, and sales were disappointing. That is until virtual sweeps of the 1952 and 1953 La Carrera Americana road race in the stock class boosted Lincoln's reputation.” – Haggarty.com

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this highly customized and creatively painted example of the 1953 Lincoln Capri for your consideration. There aren't many like this one if any that you will find and with the right price point, the powerful engine and drivetrain and its sharp two-tone paint with custom stripes and added touches, this is a great find for anyone who loves cool cars! The owner of this vehicle is also the owner of a custom car and bike shop where this one saw treatment from the outside to the inside giving this vehicle its unique look. The outside in particular is especially sharp with its gold flake exterior, the custom white triton-style stripes down the side look excellent with pin-stripe outlining completed, the roof is even more so metallic with a lighter silver/gold color added and from top to bottom this car has more personality than most people! The mechanicals have been well treated as well with a powerful 454 V8 gas engine mated to a reliable 400 turbo transmission, the vehicles lack of rust is excellent to find especially on a vehicle that is well over 60 years old and with only a couple odds and ends left to be completed, this vehicle is still ready to be enjoyed!

With a custom interior completed giving it a nice dark brown leather front bench seat, custom dash and some originality still intact, this vehicle is more than comfortable from behind the wheel. Included in the sale is windows with frames, what looks to be all the needed mechanisms you need to complete the install, boxes of odds and ends including trim, moldings and a fresh set of door poppers in the box if you wished to have them, call or email us today for a closer look at this sharp ride!
