10k: Hot Rod Lincoln: 1954 Lincoln Capri Coupe, Track Rat

The 1960 version of Hot Rod Lincoln is sung by Johnny Bond and unlike earlier versions of the song, his hot rod Lincoln has 8 cylinders instead of 12.  That is perfect for today’s feature because we couldn’t find a 12 cylinder hot rod Lincoln and had to settle for this V8 powered hunk of steel. Find this 1954 Lincoln Capri Coupe for sale in SF Bay Area, CA for $11,500 via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The somewhat inane lyrics go on something like: My pappy said “Son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’

If you don’t stop drivin’ that Hot Rod Lincoln”. 
Not a good idea to drink when driving this Lincoln as its setup for Rally, tarmac, vintage, etc. The rollcage, 5 point harness and 32 gallon fuel cell make it ready for the next running of La Carrera Panamericana or Targa California.

Not many details about the V8 under the hood are given, but it should be enough to make this thing put out some rooster tails in the dirt and make for a fun ride.
