    Maharajah was one of four show cars that highlighted the Lincoln exhibit during the 1953 Chicago Auto Show. Based on a '53 Lincoln Capri four-door sedan, the Maharajah was painted in an ultra-luxurious gold pearl paint, complimented by a white roof and featuring gold trim in the five-passenger cabin. Along with the Maharajah, people attending the 45th annual show had the opportunity to view the Lincoln Midshipman, Cadet and Anniversary Capri factory-built custom cars.
