What is the best gift you have ever received from a family member? Think about that for a minute. Chances are it was never a candy painted custom vehicle… that is of course unless you’re one of the Leal brothers of Corpus Christi TX. This 1979 Lincoln Mark V has seen its share of owners. It was orginally owned by Benny Leal Sr., then given to Frank Leal III, and is now owned by Jesse Leal, the baby of the bunch. This vehicle is no newcomer to the scene. It has been around for quite some time. In fact, the metal flake royal blue paint job with candy patterns that wraps this low low was painted by the Leal Bros. Custom Paint Shop in 1995

That’s right, you’re looking at a 13 year old paint job that still outdoes many in the scene today! The Leal brothers also custom cut a sunroof into the top of the Lincoln and molded the trunk. The interior is stunning as you can see from the above image. R&R Customs in El Paso, TX dressed the interior in royal blue, bright white, and rich purple velour. Over 400 hand cut mirrors accent an already stunning interior. The Lioncoln rides on 13X7 OG Wire Wheels with candy blue painted spokes and airbrushed murals painted by John Saenz, a talented artist who calls Leal Bros Custom Paint & Body Shop Home. No low low is complete without hydraulics, and this Lincoln doesn’t disappoint. The hydraulic system, installed by Ringo Lamb of Leal Bros, consists of 2 Showtime Hydraulic pumps powered by 4 batteries. Catch “Family Tradition” at area lowriding shows if you’re lucky. It’s not brought out too often!
