Description:

1955 Lincoln Capri 2 Door Hardtop

1955 Lincoln Capri

I will be listing a few cars here in the next week or two for my family. We are reducing are number of cars, so please see my other listings as well. I am not a dealer.

A beautiful original Lincoln! Very nice car for all your cruise night events, car shows, or just drive for fun ... These Lincolns have beautiful 50's era luxury styling and drive outstanding. They only made 11,462 Lincoln Capri models, and even fewer 2 Door Hardtops, so these particular cars are very rare to find these days. Especially NICE ones like this.

Although the mileage is not documented on the title (exempt due to age of vehicle), the **30,250 miles** are believed to be original miles and the car looks the part inside and out!

For those of you who are not as familiar with these cars, I'm sure you'll ask how long the car is. It is NOT as long as it looks. It is 215.6 inches long and will easily fit in a standard size two car garage :)

The original 341 V8 runs smooth, quiet, and makes very good power. The transmission also shifts well at all speeds (first year for the Ford-O-Matic in the Lincolns).Overall, the car runs and drives excellent and is easy to drive. Drives as you would expect a Lincoln to drive! It handles very well and takes little to no effort to steer and stop. The passenger front window goes up and down, but can be temperamental. The driver's quarter window in the back is in the up position, and although you can hear the motor working, the window does not go down currently (I have not pushed the issue). All gauges are working well. Horn works also. All lights, brake lights, directional signals, power seat, power antenna, etc are working. Overall, it is ready to drive and enjoy right now. It is a very reliable driver.Bring your friends, children, or grandchildren out and go cruising in a SUPER NICE car!

The exterior is a beautiful original color combination. It was professionally repainted in 2014. Chrome and stainless is all VERY nice. Even the gold plated emblems are nice. You can tell this has always been a good solid survivor car and was never a rust problem car ... All of the glass is in good condition and factory original interior is also very nice considering the age. The doors, hood, trunk all open and close very well. Underneath the car looks good and solid as you would expect. Surely a car you will be proud to be seen cruising around in!

Please see the photos and ask whatever questions you might have.

I reserve the right to end the listing early at any time for the right offer. The car could be for sale locally as well.

What could this car be valued at? If you look up NADA, you find that a car like this in excellent condition showing minimal wear holds a value of $53,700.00!These cars are climbing in value very quickly.You might want to grab this one before someone else beats you to it. Hard to find these cars especially at this price!!
