    In 1954, Lincoln featured specially trimmed production models for auto show duties, just as it did the previous year. The Mardi Gras was based on a Capri two-door hardtop that had a special ice blue, gold and red interior. There was also a convertible called the Huntsman and a four-door sedan tabbed the First Nighter. Both featured special interiors and trim.
