A personal luxury coupe that inspired dramatic foresight and vision to the autmobile industry, the Lincoln Premiere was sold in the mid to late 1950's. Designed by a company synonmous with design, comfort and luxury, the arrival of the Premier prompted impulse for futuristic designs. Power steering, power brakes, power windows, wraparound windshields, tubeless tires and automatic seats all began with the Lincoln Premier.
During the 1920's Lincoln distinguished itself as the premier American luxury automobile and marketed to an elite market with high expectations. Luxury and prestige were standard in all vehicles. During the war years of the 1940's, Lincoln facilities aided Ford in the production of tank engines, bodies for amphibious vehicles and over 140,000 jeep bodies. Vehicle designs in the years following the war were restyled versions of pre-war cars much like most American cars.
The 1950s were bringing many dramatic changes to Lincoln, with the elemental design of the Lincoln Premier leading it. New advancements were occurring throughout the automobile industry thus prompting Lincoln's chief stylist to start thinking of ideas for the future.
Sold by Ford's Luxury division, the vehicle featured a 6.0L V8 and approximately 223.01' (5664mm) in length. Weighing 4357 lbs (1976.3 kg) the Premier embodied the luxury standard to it's creators. In 1956 the Premier cost approximately $4,600 which bore the equivalent of roughly $31,730 in American dollars.
