Before & After: Phil Lacy's 1957 Lincoln

We gearheads at Koolhouse Publishing, Ol Skool Rodz and Car Culture Deluxe Magazines support and honor those who preserve vintage American steel. Phil Lacy’s 1957 Lincoln (Ground Level CC) is a perfect example of Detroit iron resurrected.  

The before and after photos seen here prove that with a little TLC you can own a beautiful heavy duty custom unlike the mass produced fiberglass fleas currently on the market. This vehicle has a gold and white two-tone paint job, new black interior, quad headlights and whitewalls. New mechanicals and chrome make for a smooth yet flashy mover and unique touches such as the original steering wheel, bullet accents, finned taillights, and period correct dash components give added interest. Actress Jayne Mansfield owned one of these vehicles only hers was pink meanwhile our lovely model Alyssa Allure matches this one perfectly. Next time youre in the market for a car, buy old American steel and drive it. Cruise on! (photos: Anna Marco. Wardrobe: Glamour Vixen Clothing;  Accessories: Dottie Deville.
