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.

Did you know...


Peerless was made in Cleveland Ohio and outsold Packard nationwide  in 1920!


They were one of the most expensive luxury cars of the era. The top three in price and status where called the three P’s:

Packard, Pierce Arrow and Peerless.

Peerless Motor Cars (Cleveland, Ohio 1900-1931) was the first company to adopt what would become the standard of automobile design, a front mounted engine driving the rear wheels through a solid drive shaft.
Barney Oldfield shattered world speed records with the Peerless “Green Dragon”
Many collectors believe the Peerless motorcars to be some of the finest automobiles built in the USA in the 1920’s renowned for their high performance and stylish luxury. However, Peerless is the rarest and hardest to find of the “three P’s” as it ceased production in 1932.


In 1933, ownership and management of Peerless organized the Carling Brewing Co. USA, just after Congress repealed Prohibition, and began production of the famous Carling Black Label Beer in the old Peerless factory.

Other Peerless “Firsts”

- Peerless was the first company to successfully use a flyball governor to maintain speeds.

- They set a 1,000-mile endurance record and the fastest time ever in the Mt. Washington hill climb in New Hampshire.

- Peerless was the first to use of aluminum in their side-entrance tonneau along with being the first closed formal body in American production.

- Peerless was one of the first companies to use electric lighting. They used a Gray & Davis system as early as 1910 and then upgrading in 1913 to a single voltage Gray & Davis system which now included an electric starter.

The Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk (or GT Hawk), a sporty coupe sold between 1962 and 1964, was the final development of the Studebaker Hawk series. For the 1964 model year, the GT saw some extensive design changes. The new, smooth trunk lid bore a script "Studebaker Hawk" nameplate. Grille changes were made, with two new features: a Hawk emblem was centered in the grille, and a circle-S hood ornament graced the top of the grille shell. The most notable exterior change involved the top of the car, and in the interior a larger upper-instrument-panel pad and a new lower-instrument-panel pad,  and horizontal pleats on the side upholstery panels (replacing vertical ones). And, for the first time, Hawk buyers could order an AM-FM radio as a factory-installed option.

Andy Granatelli, then president of Studebaker's Paxton Products Division, took two 1964-model Gran Turismo Hawks to the Bonneville Salt Flats in September and October 1963. Studebaker considered the GT Hawk very much a European-style GT, and accordingly the car was sold in Europe and elsewhere.
