285 bhp, 368cu. in. overhead-valve V-8 engine, automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live axle rear suspension with leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 126 inch.
As the 1956 model year dawned, Ford's flagship Lincoln line at last received the dramatic new styling demanded by the high end of the market.
The longer, lower, totally redesigned, stunningly styled, and thoroughly modern 1956 Lincoln was now a worthy competitor to its arch rival, the Cadillac.
Power was provided by an upgraded overhead-valve V-8, displacing 368 cubic inches and producing 285 horsepower, mated to a three-speed Turbo-Drive automatic transmission as standard equipment.
Even at significantly higher prices, Lincoln sales achieved record levels, increasing from 23,673 in 1955 to 41,531 in 1956. The Industrial Design Institute agreed, citing the Premiere Hardtop Coupe for "excellence in automotive design".
