Car producer : 



Premiere Generation 1 Convertible





The Lincoln Premiere is a luxury car sold by Ford Motor Company's Lincoln-Mercury division. It was produced in both 2 and 4 door versions both seating 6 people. The Premiere was sold in the 1956 to 1960 model years, inclusive, and was positioned below the company's Continental during 1956–1960 and above the Capri from 1956–1959.

The 1956 Lincoln was longer, lower, totally redesigned, stunningly styled, and thoroughly modern. Under the hood, it packed an upgraded overhead-valve V-8 that could produce 285 horsepower and was mated to a standard three-speed Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. All of this came at significantly higher prices, which thrilled Lincoln devotees who were willing to pay for it. Sales for 1956 reached record levels, rising from 23,673 cars in 1955 to 47,531 in 1956. The rarest and most expensive of all models was the Premiere Convertible, of which 2,447 were built.
