Ford Motor Co. built 19,619 Lincoln Premiere two-door hardtop coupes during the 1956 model year. Each one of the 18.5-foot-long Lincolns had a base price of $4,601.
Mr. Grove likes to quote pioneer auto reviewer Tom McCahill who wrote in Popular Mechanics in his report on the 1956 Lincoln: 'It has enough torque to yank the Empire State Building up by the roots.'
'I just put gas in the tank and go,' he says.
