1957 Continental Mark II

Classic Facts

68,000 original miles... Dual stage repaint in the original soft Silver Metallic and two town Gray leather seat upholstery... Excellent restored condition...

Ford Motor Company reinstated the Continental brand with the introduction of the Mark II Coupe in 1956. Not a Lincoln, these truly were handbuilt cars. Their $10,000 price tag was equivalent to a Rolls Royce or two Cadillacs in 1956. Designed to be the best of the best, they were purchased by the world's most wealthy and well know people.

With only 2,600 sold in 1956 and about 440 sold in 1957, the Continental brand was absorbed by Lincoln in 1958. Every Mark II was sold at a loss to Ford, but the Continental name and design elements have for survived for decades.

This lovely, low mile car was purchased in 2009 by a Pennsylvania collector. He had a frame off restoration completed of this lovely car. Beautiful fresh paint, new seat upholstery and mostly new chrome. It is so hard to find one of these rare cars in this condition.

This car has had a excellent dual stage repaint in the original soft Silver Metallic. Most of the chrome is new including the bumpers. New two town Gray leather seat upholstery. Original door panels and dash. This model also included a factory tach, one of the first cars to have that feature. The restoration of this model is very expensive, so it is much better to buy one completed...

There is an aftermarket CD stereo in the dash. We have the original radio. If the buyer prefers, we can have the original radio repaired and put back in the dash. Or, we can have the original radio inserted into the dash and the CD stereo moved to the glovebox.

Everything works on this car with the exception of the A/C and heat. We know that many of this model go into collections and we will offer the buyer to repair the A/C and heat or leave it "as is" as part of the purchase. If the repair option in chosen, we will complete the repair for our cost not to exceed $4,000. These are complicated, early A/C systems and are costly to repair to working order. We have the expertise in house to fix it...
