Description:
1956 Lincoln Premiere 2 Door Hardtop  The Lincoln Premiere was a luxury car model sold by Lincoln in the 1956 to 1960 model years.  Positioned below the company\'s Continental Mark II during 1956–1957 and above the Capri it was based on from 1956–1959, it was produced in 2 and 4 door versions which could both accommodate up to six people.  The Premiere sedan was the mid-level sedan under the Continental Mark III-V sedans, until it was replaced with the 1961 Continental sedan. For consignment, a nice driver example of the 1956 Lincoln Premier in two door format with a Starmist White exterior.  Dripping with mid 1950\'s styling, this car makes use of big chrome bumpers, wrap around glass, rounded over finnage, and a massive continental rear bumper.  Shades of the Batmobile on the front headlights taken from the previous year\'s styling of the Ford concept car called the Futura are noted.  This car was bought by our consignor\'s father against his mechanic experience advice, but was tinkered with and became colloquially known as the Pimp Mobile.  A cruiser that father and son would work and then go for a cruise and have a few beers! Exterior With its borrowed headlight shape from the Lincoln Futura, it is looking much like the St. Louis arch with the bezels and descending waterfall vents on either side.  Just below is a horizontal ribbed grille with a large bumper topper running through the middle housing the ovoid styled turn signals.  More horizontal ribbing is seen below this, and then the massive lower bumper for the bottom caps things off.  Topping the hood is a beautiful large hood ornament in the form of a gold knight in winged swept back armor torso, and he sits within a dual chromed V which streaks rearward towards the large windshield.  Add in some L I N C O L N blocked type across the front of the hood and now we are dripping with chrome with some dimples and during showing for their condition.  All this dripping is going on top of a Maaco coat of Starmist White paint which shows some doling, chip offs and areas of body filler sanded roughly then painted over with rattle can.  Throughout the rest of the steel, we see more slathered on body filler, some cracking and underlying light rust developing, and chip off areas of said filler.  Script Lincoln badging in your grandmother\'s handwriting, rocker trimming which begins on the front quarter as a spear, and runs rearward where it widens and frames the rear wheel well that has a fender skirt installed.  On the back, large inverted V tail lights have a big rear bumper just below, which has tailpipes inserted along with the continental spare tire tray to make this car 20 feet long!  The bumpers show chrome delamination and areas of dimpling.  Thin whites and dog dish chrome wheel covers with a gold starburst, (think 50\'s!), are all around and all in fair condition.  A shout out to the white painted roof, and all the chrome surrounding the wrap around  windows, pillars and door sills...worth the price of admission just with this.  Noted the trunk lid sits slightly askew from the rear fenders. Interior Some additional jet age styling inside on the door panels with sleek molded in door armrest/pulls, a rounded padded chevron white insert and some black vinyl for the sills.  The panels are soiled and show plenty of wear, especially in the sills. The wing window crank is in a big round dish bezel with perfectly preserved stainless and a black strip runs below and is offered up in ribbed vinyl.  A nifty molded-in courtesy light is just above the crank.  Lowering my Ray Ban Wayfarers on my nose, I can peer better into the passenger compartment.  I slip through the dirty thresholds and here I see a large split back bench with black tuck and roll inserts in tiger striped broadcloth, with white leather surrounding bolsters.  These chairs are very rough with lots of cracking at the seams and severe wear on the leather entry bolsters.  In back is a long rear bench in the sam
