Description of this Lincoln Continental Mark II 1956

There is a certain level of luxury reserved for the discerning few, and this 1956 Continental Mark II truly represents this upper echelon of rare vintage vehicles. Yes, it was even above Lincoln in the hierarchy, but we did list it in the name. As you read on, you'll see this extremely rare Mark II has been treated with the right respect all its life, with the right maintenance and investments just the way you would do, too.
The Mark II was a statement about having European luxury with American flair. You see it in a design with exceptionally clean sheetmetal that could rival the best of the pre-war French designs balanced with mammoth chrome bumpers that are so well integrated into the design that you barely notice the exhaust under the taillights. Of course, the elegance of this car is further heightened by a more recent application of a burgundy. The modern clearcoat shine highlights the color that brings the boldness of red but in a more sophisticated tone. You'll love pouring over all the details of this hand-crafted coupe, including the turbine-style wheels, whitewall tires, and all the correct badging. And of course, you'll love the graceful bulge in the center of the trunk where the spare tire lives underneath an iconic namesake feature that was so stylish that it has been added to other cars over the years.
The new white leather seats are exactly what you expect from a car of this caliber. They has been a solid investment here to make sure they feel supple and retain the plush button-top presentation. And with its dark grey piping, this is a beautiful color combination that nicely coordinates with the carpeting, door panels, dash, and headliner to create a beautiful uniform appearance. Beyond the intricate factory wheel is a full gauge panel. The instruments were influenced by both aircraft and fine timepieces. It has wonderfully detailed dials and levers for the HVAC controls, making for a very unique driving experience. It's a fantastically original-style presentation that even has provisions for features like power windows and the AM radio. This was such a complete luxury machine that there was only one option: air conditioning it's present on this example and still blowing cold today.
The 368 cubic-inch V8 was the best Lincoln had to offer in the day, and it was rumored the Continental engines were even further refined for the best quality. You can see this connection in the well presented engine bay that features stock elements like the Continental star valve covers. And because prestige is everything, we even believe this to be the original motor. The four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust sound like the kind of features for a muscle car, but in this application, it's all about providing effortless power with plenty of refinement. And a car this nice deserves to be driven with distinction. That's why the refined ride is combined with easy driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
With only around 3,000 ever produced over its short production run, the Continental Mark II is a true rare luxury classic. It even comes with great paperwork like the owner's manual, dealer correspondence, dealer marketing book (paint and fabric swatches), and restoration photos. That makes this the best way to own America's Rolls-Royce. Don't let this rare opportunity slip away, call today!
