The Anniversary Capri convertible was a special Lincoln show car created to celebrate FoMoCo's golden anniversary. It was claimed that $4,000 worth of 14-carat gold was used to plate the bumpers, grille and body trim. Three other modified Lincolns toured with the Anniversary Capri. They were the Maharajah, Midshipman, and Cadet.

 


Maharajah was one of four show cars that Lincoln displayed during the 1953 auto show in Chicago. Based on a Capri four-door sedan, the Maharajah was painted in an ultra-luxurious gold pearl paint and a white roof. Interior metal trim was also done in gold.
