4610 Pet Lane
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 whitewall tires.
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 experience.
This is a rare classic luxury presented with the respected style that keeps it a premium stunner. Call today!!!
