The 1957 Lincoln Premiere was bold, distinct, powerful, loaded, and
premium when new. It's the kind of car that was admired in '57, and
that kind of esteem only grows as it continues to become a rarer
and rarer classic. So to find an example that so accurately
represents its era is an irresistible opportunity.
The impressiveness of this coupe starts with the paint. Not only is
white and burgundy a terrific upper-class color combo, but this is
a more recent application where then shine tells you there was a
solid investment here. And the pearl/metallic element in the while
adds a terrific radiant touch. The chrome shines brightly, too, and
there is plenty of it to show off. The brightwork makes for an
imposing front end with the stacked headlights and ultra-wide
wraparound bumpers. The trim along the side shows off the round
roof, wraparound windshield, and the overall straightness of the
sheet metal. The rear mixes more imposing style in the bumpers,
with a wraparound panel that looks like it belongs on a jukebox.
And the whole package is finished off with wire wheels and
The interior switches priorities where the burgundy is the main
color and white is used for accenting. The colors are impressively
intertwined on the seating, door panels, dash, and steering wheel.
And the carpeting is positively plush for the proper premium
feeling. The Premiere was the range-topper, and so you got standard
features that were the envy of others, like a power front seat and
power windows. And this one keeps the impressive vintage style,
right down to the courtesy lights and AM radio that's still there
for display. So grabbing the two-tone steering wheel and heading
down the road will feel like pure nostalgia.
Open the hood on this car and you will notice that everything
appears stock and well maintained. A nice feature here is that
Lincoln moved to a 12-volt electrical system the previous year, and
so the car starts easily and there is plenty of power to run all
those accessories. The engine in this car is 368 cubic inches of
smooth power and is announced as a Lincoln V8 by the gold air
grabber and script on the valve covers. Topped with a four-barrel
carburetor, this swiftly moves this coupe with the right kind of
premium power. The three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, power brakes, and a modern tread behind the classic-style
whitewalls all make for an easy and confident driving
This is a rare classic luxury presented with the respected style
that keeps it a premium stunner. Call today!!!
