    Making a distinctive debut in Chicago was the forward-looking Lincoln Capri with a transparent top treatment (ala Mercury Sun Valley/Ford Skyliner). Rear quarter panels and acutely angled taillights appear on the 1955 production Lincoln. Front grille and bumper were also similar to the 1955 Lincoln. Bench seats were upholstered in gray, accented by an overlaid of black and light gray chalk stripes. Ceiling was white gabardine. The Premiere name would appear on Lincolns, starting with the 1956 models. This example had a black body and white roof.
