Sold for $57,750 at 2010 RM Auctions - Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook.
Sold for $46,750 at 2012 RM-Automobiles of Arizona.
Lincoln produced 1,487 Capri Convertibles in 1955 and this example is powered by a 341 cid V8 engine offering 225 horsepower. It has a 'Turbo Drive' automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

The upscale Capri was introduced in 1952 and it was meant to capitalize on the decline of Packard and to become a stronger challenge to Cadillac. By April of 1955, Lincoln enjoyed new status as a separate division with the formation of Lincoln-Mercury, and the success in the Carrera Panamericana during 1952, 1953, and 1954 brought many engineering improvements to the marque.

This car has had just two owners from new. It is in original condition with white painted steel wheels, full wheel covers and a recent set of reproduction B.F. Goodrich Silvertown tires. The interior features white and aqua blue leather upholster, and there is a clock and an optional AM radio and heater.

In 2010, this Capri was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook event presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $65,000 - $85,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $57,750 including buyer's premium.
