 Vehicle Description
This 1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri Coupe is a rare two-door that has been upgraded with fuel-injected V8 power, sleek paint, an A/C interior, and more. Its all so that even vintage motoring can live up to the premium feeling of a Lincoln. br / brbr For a few short years both before and after WWII, Lincolns had a very distinct style. The headlights were sunken into the fenders; the profile was sleek like a chopped-top hot rod; and the sheetmetal had amazing curves that flowed right into the door line. It really did look like a custom car right from the factory, and so its an ideal place to start for a full custom build. But this one likes to be subtle about its upgrades. The exterior investments preferred to focus on the cars classic style. So you have a quality respray of a tasteful Bonita Blue, and the darker blue vinyl roof gives this a European-like level of sophistication. Shining chrome bumpers, full-length trim, whitewall tires, and rear fender skirts are all part of a great 1950s feeling. In fact, your only true clue at this cars modern upgrade may just be the large dual exhaust tips. But we also understand why the exterior presentation is all about being close to stock. The trim tag has this as a true Capri coupe, and that makes it one of less than 1,300 produced that / brbr A tasteful sea of blue continues inside. The blue and gray striped cloth has the right 1950s look but a far fresher feel. And theres a nice-looking dark blue on top. This full setup is repeated on the side panels for a uniform appearance. As a true luxury Lincoln in the premium Cosmopolitan series, this had some great features like power windows. Plus, youll love the tingle you get when slipping behind the stylish factory steering wheel and gazing at the Art Deco style gauges. It all goes for a vintage feeling, right down to the AM radio thats still cranking out tunes. But because this one is built to be a better cruiser, they also added modern R134a air conditioning to make sure every Sunday drive remains cool and comfortable. br / brbr While the Cosmopolitan Capri came with one of the largest/best flathead V8s of the era, youll be much happier with the powerhouse currently under the hood. They updated this one utilizing proper Ford power with a 5.8-liter V8 borrowed from an F-150. The truck motor is a terrific transplant here. After all, you get the modern appeal of fuel injection in a package designed for big torque. So it offers right kind of power and consistency to move this Detroit iron with ease. They even added dual electric fans to help keep it running cool. If this is starting to sound like an awesome cruiser package, then youll also like the power steering, power brakes, and Fords strong and smooth C6 three-speed automatic transmission. br / brbr These Lincolns had a custom look, and now this one has a custom fuel-injected heart. So dont let this rare coupe with all the best features slip away. Call today!!!br/br/
