    Lincoln Capri

    Heres my new rabbit, got lucky with this as its far better than I first thought it would be, its a 54 hardtop that had its roof removed quite crudely but I hope to rectify that in time, good news is its completely rust free!, its also had all its running gear gone through and unlike some imports Ive had dealings with its all been done to a very very good standard and apart from some worn switches I dont think anything needs redoing mechanicly or wiring wise, eng/box are very sweet and lites the tyres easy as, plans for it are not set in stone but a slice here,there and everywhere will be involved but without chopping the chassis about as it needs to be my driver/tow car foremost.

    Interesting find Moon - looks like someone in the first photo either did a bit of emergency braking before hitting the garage - or - popped off a wheelie going in the garage?
    Look like a candidate for a custom 'glass Carson top!

    Plans at the minute that may or may not change are a little of the top with a trad type carson top and thinking about taking a bit out the middle too (lower not shorter) but want to drive it a bit first and see how I feel then, wont have to worry engine wise though as it came fitted with this and my foot slipped on the way in..........

    You talkin' about a 'section' job? - like a a few inches out of the body height? - very late 50's/early 60's !

    Yes Ross, Iam thinking perhaps 3" out the middle 3.5" of the top and lower it just 2/3" so it can stili drive ok with all the speed bumps we have, but it will be nice just to drive somthing for a while instead of working on it so that will come later.........
