Vehicle Overview 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II
Just like Elvis used to drive, this Mark II was personal luxury at its finest. Finished in a white pearl, this handsome car certainly looks expensive in every way and is just a little bit more interesting than the original basic white. Fit and finish are good, but you have to remember that these were hand-built cars, so they aren't going to be perfect no matter how much money you throw at them. The chrome that is on the car is excellent and experts will spot that little scoop on the quarter panel, indicative of factory A/C living within.
The bespoke interior is black and white leather that is impeccably tasteful in every way. The upholstery appears to be entirely original and in good condition with normal wear. The instrument panel was influenced by both aircraft and clocks, with wonderfully detailed dials and levers for the HVAC controls, making for a very unique driving experience. A tachometer was standard equipment, more a curiosity than anything else in 1956, and the lovely textured face of the dash still has a bright finish. Power windows, power seats, and power locks were part of the package, and as I mentioned, the factory A/C is a very desirable option. The original AM radio is still in the dash, too! The trunk, even with the A/C system tucked behind the front panel, is truly massive and has been nicely upholstered in black carpet for a luxurious look.
The 368 cubic inch V8 was ostensibly the same as those powering With a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, it's effortless but there's also a lot of mass to move, so while it's not a drag racer, it does have a feeling of inevitability and there are few finer highway cruisers. The engine was rebuilt to stock specs save for an electronic ignition system, and the beautifully ornate valve covers and gold engine enamel signify something special is under the hood. It features a proper air cleaner, a reproduction battery, and those wild exhaust manifolds that dump out through the inner fenders. A 3-speed automatic transmission and 3.07 gears ensure that it's comfortable at any speed and the suspension is so smooth that you hear bumps more than feel them
Some minor things to point out... It has a small dent in the rear bumper and a small part of the chrome on the front of the bumper damaged. (See photos) Also ablemish or two in the paint. Nothing major to speak of.
Restoration was completed in 2002 with receipts totaling over $170k!
Documented with restoration receipts, maintenance records, an owner's manual, and other paperwork, this is a wonderful Mark II that's truly a class of one.
