1956 Lincoln Continental
Dream Car Autohaus is offering for sale our clients 1956 Continental Mark II luxury coupe. Finished in White with white and black leather this all original #s matching Mark II was located in a garage not far from my client after sitting for over 30 years.
This is the first year for the Mark II by Continental and was not considered a Lincoln until 1958 then the Mark III was introduced. Although the car sat for many years and was not driven the prior owner did start it once a week and moved it back and forth to make sure that the brakes did not seize and the tires did not get flat spots.
We believe the car to have the original paint as it is uniform all around. The underside of the hood looks as if the padding deteriorated over the years as well as in the trunk. The Mark II has the original 368 CU-IN 6.03 Litre 4bbl V8 with the original 3 speed turbo drive automatic.
When my client took possession of the car he needed to ad a new battery as the old one would not work. The car started right up and idled smoothly. The Mark II still retains the original interior as well as the carpets and all the factory instruments.
The power windows and seats work, the radio works and all of the gauges work. The fan for the AC/Heat blows but there is no freon in the system and we could not test to see if it will blow cold. This Mark II has power steering, brakes, windows, seats, AM radio and AC. The slide-away tail light exposes the gas tank filler and the Mark II still has the original hubcaps. The car is very solid with no rust and runs and drives very nicely.
The original interior will need some cleaning to bring back the luster but as you can see everything has been untouched. This car is from a private collection and can be seen by appointment only at our Delaware location Monday to Friday from 9:00 Am to 5:00 PM.
