Despite being the second year of an all-new body/chassis, the 1957 Lincoln was extensively updated in order to remain competitive with Cadillac and Imperial, which were both all-new. The Premiere Convertible remained at the top of the order and Lincoln’s most expensive car, at $5,381. Prices jumped a whopping $781 from 1956, which paralleled that of its competitors. Styling changes were most extensive at the rear of the vehicle and included higher fins and flared quarter panels, tail lamps, bumper, and lower back panel applique. Up front was a new grille, a revised bumper, and a newly legal four-headlight “Quadra-Lite” arrangement.
