Kjetil Kvipt's 1955 Lincoln
1955 Lincoln Capri restyled by Coupe Devils member Kjetil Kvipt of Sandefjord, Norway. One night in 2002, Kjetil and a buddy watched the movie Moonshine Highway. Kjetil liked the looks of the 1954 Mercury hauling the moonshine, his buddy told him that the neighbor had one sitting in his garage. Kjetil was all shook up when he heard the news. After the movie was finished they went straight over to take a look at the car. Kjetil fell in love and decided to buy it. It was imported to Norway in 1991 and the car had not been run by its own power for the past 10 years. He made it start and overhauled the brakes. The handles and emblems were removed. The headlights were frenched. The body was nosed and decked. Once the bodywork was completed, the car was painted ice white pearl satin finish with silver flaked roof. The deck lid was striped by Kjetil.
