FOR SALE: restoration in progress
Antique/Classic / Clovis, New Mexico
I have three 1956 Lincolns, am getting old, and dont work on
them or play with them much any more.. Need to sell at least
one. I gave $2500 for this car in 1999. It was running, and
drivable. I have spent an additional $4872.81 for various
refurbishing, and now have $7372.81 in it. A little more skilled
restoration work, and this car will become a real eye catching
classic. When is the last time you have seen a 1956 Lincoln
Premiere? Not many of them around, anymore! It has been
stored inside ever since I have owned it. I have the chrome trim,
hub caps, and misc. parts missing in the pictures. They were
removed for body work, and painting. The car has a spare wheel
and tire in the trunk. Work done to this Lincoln, since I bought it.
Spare wheel, new mirrors, power brake rebuild and total brake
repair, better tires, tune-up of engine, new mufflers and
tailpipes, power steering and steering gear box repair, new tail
light lens, Lincoln chrome hub caps, power window switches,
body work (almost ready for paint) replacement Town and
Country Lincoln radio.
This ad is my first attempt to sell the car, since I have owned it.
The car runs, is drivable, but still needs complete upholstery,
paint, inside and out, and misc other restoration repairs. All
glass, and exterior body is in good shape.
I have a replacement Town and Country radio for it, new tail light
lens, and various small parts, in boxes. This car has the factory
air, which was optional, back then.
In 1956, the Lincoln Preimere, and the Cadillac were the two
main luxury cars in the US. It is now a real, rare classic! They
were great luxury road cars, and they are well built and strong.
The Red and Black picture is a Lincoln ad from 1956. It is what
this car could look like, when finished. A Lincoln Preimere
weighs almost 5000 pounds!
This car is in my building, in Clovis, New Mexico.
