57 lincoln parts

Recommended Posts

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.

Welcome to the forum. The 57 Premiere is a great looking car, I had one a couple years ago, see my thread here: http://forums.aaca.org/f190/1957-lincoln-premiere-coupe-312271.html

I still have some parts, I'll have to check to see exactly what. Rust is almost a given on these cars, between that, non-working electrical items and mechanical problems I sold mine at a loss rather than get in over my head, I hope you have a better experience.

Tex,

Thanks. I actually saw the posts about your car. When I got mine I started looking up information online and your one thread is in the top 20 google results. Actually, it was what lead me to the AACA forum. Mine is way not as nice as that one, the original owner parked it in 1978 and there it sat until about a year ago when the 2nd owner bought it from him or his estate. He did some motor work to get running, but there's no way I would do that, the gas pedal is broken off at the base, and the brakes technically work. The frame looks okay, at least to my untrained eye, but the bottom of the body is really rusted, the rockers are bad, the floor pans are bad, and the channels that run under the floor and connect to the rockers are bad. The trunk floor is solid though, even the spare wheel area is solid, go figure.

I know I won't make any money from this car, it's just something to work on, learn on (like how to weld), and have fun with. I don't want to make it a show car or need to keep it all original. I just want a nice cruiser I can drive the family to get ice cream on a nice summer day. My son is now 2 and I'd like him to be able to drive the car when he gets his license and to help me work on it as he gets older, so not a huge rush. This is the first classic car I've bought.

started to take more parts off the car and examine condition. I may also need the trim on the front of the hood and the two curved trim pieces on the front sides of the hood.
