    Well she's in the shop and all mine.1955 Lincoln Capri two door coup.I ask the other day in another thread what it might be worth,but had no pic's. Take a look and tell me what ya think. Any thoughts on what would be the safest most practical way to lower her a few inches would be helpful

    I may be crazy but I think it would be between $18,000 to $22,000. Can tell from the pics but it looks pretty perfect.

    On the lowering I just used blocks in the back and cut the springs in the front.

    Very nice. I would suggest buying new springs in front and lowering blocks in the rear, assuming leaf springs in the rear. I just did the same thing to a near stock Buick of similar color. Although I had to rebuild the front suspension at the same time.

    I'd take those wheels and ramps from under her. That'll bring her down a bit.
