Known History

1956 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL MARK II for sale

 

Exotic Classics is proud to present this exquisite 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II Coupe.

 

In 1955, the Continental name was revived as a separate Ford division, with its sole model being the Continental Mark II. This car was a unique design with the highest quality control ever seen in the automobile industry. High-class luxury abounded in the new Continental, with very limited availability. Continentals for 1956 were some of the most expensive cars in the world. With a price of $10,000, it rivaled the cost of a Rolls-Royce. But despite its huge price tag, Ford Motor Company is said to have lost money on each one sold. The Continental Mark II was sold for just two model years with a total production of 2,996. The Continental was found affordable by only the world's wealthiest individuals. Many celebrities drove them, including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, the Shah of Iran, Nelson Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger among others. As an aside; while on later models it was purely for decoration the Mark II did in fact carry the spare under the trunk lid's stamped-in tire cover.

 

Our car, C56B2030, is featured in the original Medium Blue with Blue and White leather interior. Luxury features include factory air conditioning, power steering, brakes, windows, antenna and seats. It is powered by Lincolns 368 CI / 285 HP V8 with Turbo-Drive automatic transmission. The car is beautifully restored with detailed engine compartment and undercarriage. The car runs and drives well. Your inspection is invited.
