The coupes pillarless designed earned it and Lincoln the Industrial Designers Institute Award of Excellence in Automotive Design.Assembled on May 24, 1956; this car has recently been professionally refinished the exterior in Huntsman Red. The lack of traditional B-pillars between the front and rear side windows serves to highlight the long lines that were found on all 1956 Lincolns. The rear fender skirts and understated brightwork add the cars handsomeness, as do the gold accents and lower drip rails that expand to cover the entire rear B-pillar.The cars paint is in overall excellent condition and in red, it is quite eye-catching, however there is some minor scraped trim behind the passenger side door. The glass panels are in overall very good order and the cars lights are in excellent condition.This Lincoln rolls on Remington wide whitewalls, sized L78-15, mounted on red rims with full factory wheel covers. The tires and wheels are in overall very good condition. All of the cars body panels are straight; the bumpers are in overall very good order, except for blemishes in back. The engine bay is extremely tidy.Under that red hood is Lincolns 368 CID Y-block V-8 engine in a highly detailed engine bay. The engine block and intake manifold are painted light green while the rocker covers and air cleaner are black. The rockers bear the words, Lincoln V-Eight. The engine breathes through a dual exhaust and is buttoned to a Turbo-Drive three-speed automatic transmission and a 3.07:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include power steering, power brakes, power windows and four-way power front seat. Lincoln switched to a 12-volt electrical system in 1956.Inside, the new red and black leather upholstery on the bench seats is in excellent condition. The black carpet, black headliner and black instrument panel are all in very good order; even the door courtesy lights still work. However, the horn, windshield wipers, speedometer, odometer, and antenna are all inoperative. Design themes of that era put the gauges, warning lights and clock above the padded dashboard while putting the switches below the padding. On either side of the four-spoke, deep-dish steering wheel are levers for the HVAC controls that look like they were lifted from a jet airplane.The Premiere was introduced in 1956 as an upscale version of theLincoln Capri. It featured a 368 CID Lincoln Y-BlockV8and it was approximately 223 inches long in 1956.
