The Capri was sold by Lincoln for the 1952 through 1959 model years. It is this car that earned the “Hot Rod Lincoln” term, having won the top four spots in the Stock Car category of the Pan American Road Race in both 1952 and 1953. 14,342 Capris were sold in its debut year. In the October, 1952, issue of Popular Mechanics, a Lincoln Capri was tested, 0-60 mph time was 14.8 seconds, while the quarter-mile was 21.3 seconds. The Capri was also one of the first vehicles to offer an automatic headlight dimmer as optional equipment.
The Capri offers the first ball-joint front suspension, doing away with king-pins, and a completely redesigned frame, with six cross-members and K-type reinforcement.
