1955 Lincoln Capri Ed Sullivan

Ed Sullivan. M.C. of Toast of the Town, and Julia Meade introduce New Lincoln. Monitor sets show new rear deck, new longer body, new front assembly.

Camera one! Close up! Take the new Lincoln for 1955

First you notice its unusual beauty; the dramatic new tail-lights, the sweep of the chrome, the new front end treatment, the 11 1/2 inch longer body, the lower, flowing look.
But perhaps even more exciting is the story on performance – further enhanced by new Turbo-Drive – biggest news in no-shift driving in almost 15 years. Here is no frustrating lag, no unpleasant jerk, but one unbroken sweep of silent power, from zero to superhighway speeds.
Turbo-Drive is especially designed and built to work in harmony with Lincoln’s brand new, high torque V-8 engine for 1955. But you must feel this action to believe it. You Lincoln dealer will be glad to let you drive a Lincoln or a Lincoln Capri. You’ll know you’ve made a wonderful discovery the moment that Lincoln’s wheels begin to turn.
