FOR SALE: restoration in progress
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? Not many of them around,
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, fuel filter, 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, floorboard repair,
and misc.other 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. It does not currently work.
In 1956, the Lincoln Preimere, and the Cadillac were the two
main luxury cars in the US. Marilyn Monroe, Ed Sullivan, and
many other stars had them. 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.
