1956 Lincoln Premiere Convertible
|Ext. Color||Taos Turquoise|
The Lincoln Premiere Convertible is powered by the 368-cid, 275-hp OHV V-8 Lincoln engine with a three-speed Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. It also features power windows, power seat, power steering and radio. The car is large and spacious, yet styling lines are agile and graceful, crowned by the elegantly rakish convertible top. This results in one of the best looking 1950s convertibles produced. The Lincoln has beautiful exterior brightwork that includes lower side trim that runs front to back over the fender skirts. The Premiere has dual mirrors and dual-exhaust that exits through twin ports on the rear bumper. The hood ornament, gold trim elements, wide whitewalls and understated chrome dished hubcaps complete the presentation.
Lincoln only built 2,447 copies of this uncommon and expensive model.
This example is painted in stunning Taos Turquoise with a new canvas top installed in 2022, accompanied by a rebuilt engine and gearbox completed in March 2023. The paint quality is done to a high level with very minor chips that can be seen in the gallery. Interior shows minimal use, chrome is tidy with little wear or hazing, and it drives quite well down the road with wide white wall Coker tires dated 2020. It is ready for the road.
