1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to feature this unique, restored 1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri Coupe for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The Cosmopolitan was a full-size luxury car marketed by Lincoln for just three years from 1949 to 1951, before it was succeeded by the Premiere and Capri. Something worth noting about the Cosmopolitan was its use as a Presidential state car under Harry S. Truman's administration. This Cosmopolitan Capri Coupe has undergone a significant “frame off" restoration under the ownership of a Lincoln collector to get where it is today. Painted in a dreamy “Bonita Blue" with a darker blue vinyl top, this Cosmopolitan has had all chrome pieces re-plated and looking show ready. The surprise comes under the hood where you'll find a 5.8l (351cid) Windsor V8 engine from a Ford F-Series truck that includes factory air conditioning, power brakes, power steering and a 12 volt electrical system that brings this 50's classic up to par with modern performance expectations. A Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission shifts this '51 through the gears. The dual exhaust on this Cosmopolitan has been modified for additional power and the seller is stating the car returns around 300hp on a dyno. Like the exterior, originality has not been lost on the inside with replicated factory materials and restored gauges. You will notice the under-dash air climate control module and power windows that have been integrated subtly, though. From the gold hood ornament to the fender skirts and wide white wall tires, this 1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Capri Coupe looks and shows like a factory original yet this sweet classic has the modern powertrain and features that today's buyers want and will appreciate. Give our helpful and knowledgeable Sales staff a call at (623) 900-4884 and we will be happy to put our eyes and ears on this Lincoln for you and assist with any further questions you have. Alternatively we can be reached at by email.
