Wheels in the grass, with Jim Corbran

1956 Lincoln Capri, Franklinville, N.Y.

1956 Lincoln Capri, Franklinville, N.Y.

I know, I know… I’ve been involved in an ambitious house painting job these past couple of weeks, and the spare time is scarce. But yesterday when I saw this 1956 Lincoln Capri sitting in the back row of a small used car lot in Franklinville I had to stop.

Not the top of the line, the Capri was overshadowed by the more expensive Premiere, but they both had the same styling which was all-new for 1956. This particular car still looks to be in pretty good shape on the outside, but the interior looks as if someone has (or had) a restoration in mind, as it’s quite disassembled. Still, not too bad for its age!
