The premiere 1956 Lincoln
Outstanding and highly correct restoration, with NOS engine
One of the finest in existence

The 1956 Lincoln was longer, lower, totally redesigned, stunningly styled, and thoroughly modern, packing an upgraded overhead-valve V-8, producing 285 horsepower and mated to a standard three-speed Turbo Drive automatic transmission. All of this came at significantly higher prices, which thrilled Lincoln devotees were willing to pay. Sales for 1956 reached record levels, rising from 23,673 cars in 1955 to 47,531 in 1956. Rarest and most expensive of all models was the Premiere Convertible, of which 2,447 were built..
