Great color combination inside and out!

For almost $30K asking price I'd give it a bath before listing.

Seller doesn't make it clear if the car is actually in running condition right now?

Sharp car, but seller is asking for all the money a really good example might bring, not a neglected, dirty car that may or may not currently run. Engine isn't looking too tidy considering the seller claims a rebuild. Lots of questions.

I agree, Greg.  I think the car is considerably overpriced.

My friend bought a '57 Lincoln 2-door hardtop in

#3 condition for $20,000 a few years ago.

 

This time of year can make it harder to sell a car like that. 

A seller can't give the car a bath at 20 degrees, and snow

may be piled up outside so even a running car can't

be taken out for good pictures.

"Inside and out, every dramatically new detail makes Lincoln for 1957, now, more than ever, unmistakably, the finest in the fine car field!"  

In the bright, sophisticated cadence of Julia Meade, Lincoln spokeswoman and co-host on The Ed Sullivan Show.

 

BTW, those wheel cover centers should be the plastic inserts with the gold Premiere star.

I guess it would be too much to ask the seller to move his 29K car forward a few feet to take a picture of the rear of the car. Or maybe it doesn't run. He probably doesn't even realize it has the wrong hubcap centers and that part of the hood ornament is missing.

I hadn't thought of that John.
