Amazing Photos of 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis Concept Car

The Lincoln Indianapolis concept was created in 1955 by Carrozzeria Boano, using the chassis and running gear from the 1955 Lincoln. The only time it was shown to the public as a new concept study was at the 1955 Turin Motor Show.

Carrozzeria Boano coachwork is more or less recognizable on this Lincoln chassis, which uses a 200 horsepower V8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The Indianapolis was meant to be a design study only, so Boano felt free to indulge themselves. Practicality took a backseat role. The Indianapolis’ shape is vaguely similar to the Abarth Spyder Turin show prototype, which also debuted at the 1955 Turin Motor Show but was a much smaller car in all respects.

Boano used the orange color seen on this concept in a couple other design studies. The greenhouse is perhaps the most recognizable design element, and was featured in one form or another on a number of Boano-bodied Ferraris.

Here below is a set of amazing photos of 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis concept car.
