FOR SALE: 1957 Lincoln Premier
The Lincoln Premiere is a luxury car sold by Ford Motor Company\'s Lincoln-Mercury division. It was produced in both 2 and 4 door versions both seating 6 people. Fins flew higher than ever in 1957, and the 1957 Lincoln Premiere had some of the tallest in Detroit - a literal big change from the low, handsomely sculpted rear fenders of 1956. The appendages might have been even higher, but cooler heads fortunately prevailed in the design studio. Otherwise, Lincoln\'s successful \'56 formula was little changed for \'57. The only other visual difference was \"QuadraLites,\" conventional 7-inch headlamps above 5-inch \"road\" lamps. Under the hood, Lincoln\'s 368-cubic-inch V-8 gained higher compression and 15 horsepower for an even 300. The car you see here is a seldom seen 1957 Lincoln Premier 2 Door Hardtop. This car has been nicely restored by its previous owner and looks great! Finished in beautiful Flamingo Pink paint with a black hardtop, the paint coats the nostalgic lines of this finned beauty, with only minor rock chips. The body is straight as an arrow and solid. This car came equipped with the Continental Kit that displays the spare tire on the large rear bumper of the car and it really sets this Lincoln off! Both bumpers appear to have been rechromed in the recent past and show no notable imperfections. Inside, it\'s comparable to climbing into a 1950\'s time capsule. The seats are wrapped in pink leather with black cloth. The seats have minor wear but that is typical of a 56 year old vehicle. The carpet, headliner and door panels are all in excellent condition and look fantastic. The dashboard appears to have had a minor facelift but does still have its original gauges and look great! This Lincoln did come with factory air conditioning for keeping comfortable on warm days. The car even came with a power seat. Lincoln really went above and beyond in the 1950\'s as far as luxury went! Under the hood, you\'ll find the 368 cubic inch V8 that is capable of reaching up to 300 horsepower. Attached is the 3-speed Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. This car is equipped with power brakes and power steering. The original chrome Premier wheels are still intact and look great wrapped in white wall tires. This Flamingo Pink Lincoln Premier is truly a blast from the past and will turn heads wherever it goes! The current mileage shows 78,470 and the VIN is 57WA9944L.
