I am restoring a 57 premiere coupe. If you have a 56 or 57 Lincoln that you are parting or could part, please let me know. Some of the parts I need: All headliner chrome trim, above doors, courtesy lights, rear sail panel and above rear window. Visor latches rear view mirror in good shape, mine is okay, but the glass is separated. Drivers door Remote Driver's side mirror Antenna base front windshield lower chrome trim pieces by wipers, the pieces with two screws in them. Inside door handle retaining spring and chrome ring that goes between handle and spring. Also clip to hold handle. That's what's missing, things I might replace instead of fix: Front bumper if okay driver condition. Mine probably wouldn't need replating, but has pulls and is really bent drivers side. Front parking light surround drivers side. Rear bumper, if okay driver condition. The floors and rockers are really rusty, not sure yet path to take, there are some replacement panels available from a company called classic2current, but the floor under the bench seat and under the rear seat is rusted too and they don't make panels for that area. Thanks.
Guest posted a topic in Automobiles and Parts - Buy/Sell<dt>PRICE REDUCTION - Re-list 1956 Lincoln Premiere Convertible - #56WA27337L - Body code on the VIN plate reads BY76B 25-630-B23-311. This 1956 Lincoln Premier Convertible was the 311th car built in 1956. The car was undergoing a detailed renovation when the previous owner ran out of money and I bought the car. Location: Vienna, Virginia 22182</dt><dt>Mileage: 30,800</dt><dt>Condition: Good</dt><dt>Exterior: Turquoise</dt><dt>Interior: Turquoise/Green and White</dt><!-- Begin description --> Most of the hard work has been done already and it now needs the finishing touches. Some of the trim is missing and there are trim pieces in the trunk. Some of the chrome will need attention as well as it is dull in some areas. The convertible top hardware is in the trunk as well - not sure if it is compete or not. The roof frame will need a new canvas. I believe the engine has been rebuilt. The engine block was removed and painted as was the engine bay. The car has new paint and no rust that I can see. The car has a new battery, new tires and shocks and the underside is clean and rust free. Money ran out after the body work, paint and engine was reinstalled and the exhaust was not put back on. The hangers for the exhaust system are all good and in place. The car starts and runs smoothly. People will note that the lower rear quarters have been replaced with those of a 1957 - it is a professional job and unless you knew this in advance, it is hard to tell that this work was done. There are two fender skirts in the trunk from a 1956 if the next owner wants to go back to the 1956 look. The brake lines are new - the brakes will need an adjustment. The windshield has a couple of cracks and will need to be replaced at some point. On the interior of the car, some of the trim is missing as is the drivers window and rear windows - all available easily on line. The seats are new and are in great shape as is the matching carpet. A video of the car can be seen here: These cars at Auction, in excellent condition, bring in bids in the area of $100K to $140K. I believe I am asking a fair price based on the work already done and with the understanding of what needs to be done. Here is an opportunity to double your investment. With the continental kit, the car is 20 feet long and can be driven onto your trailer with ease. The car is located in Vienna VA, 22182 and comes with a clean and clear Vermont Title and registration in my name and a car cover. Feel free to call me with any questions @ 703-232-4600. Price: $29,500 negotiable 703-232-4600
