2. 1957 Lincoln Premiere Coupe

1957 LINCOLN PREMIERE COUPE

 This beautiful lady I found for sale in Carlisle Pa. in 1990, the gentleman selling the car, was selling the car for his mother, he put a cheap coat of paint on her and new seat covers, it was not a show car as it is now, but his dad was a local Doctor, and they maintained the car well, so I took her home, the first six photos are the car unrestored
 
This is a very rare car, I have written documentation of 86 still existing out of the 15,185 built, the LCOC says 39 still exist, she was built on 01/23/57, and was lucky number 25 off the line that day
 
I spent from 1990 to 1997 finding NOS and other parts needed to give her a proper restoration, then in 1998 she was restored to the beauty she is today, she's won over 150 first place trophies and 30 Best of Show trophies, and is still winning.
