Overview Of Entire Vehicle: *Condition #3+ (Solid Rare Cruiser)

Here is an absolutely gorgeous 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II in excellent condition inside and out. This appears to be an older restoration done on a very nice and solid car. We estimate this restoration to be about 15 years old but shows beautifully. This car is on consignment with us from a private collector who has over 200 cars. He is turning over some inventory so he gave us this to sell for him. It is an excellent driver and has a very nice Deep Red exterior with a White leather interior and super rare working factory air conditioning. This car has a lot of signs of originality to it, it has a body that is straight as an arrow and is completely rust-free. It shows 70k miles which we believe to be actual. A lot of these Mark II's are in very rough condition but this one is in very good condition overall and is an excellent cruiser. Overall this is a fantastic car that is in excellent condition and you do not find them with options such as factory air conditioning at this kind of price point.

Exterior: *Condition #3+

The exterior of this Mark II looks absolutely stunning, finished in its factory color of Deep Red, with a super straight body and excellent fit and finish throughout. Again we believe this restoration to be about 15 years old but the paint shows wonderfully and has a brilliant shine to it. It has very few flaws and everything fits excellent on it. The body is straight as an arrow and there are zero dents or scratches to speak of. The hood could be adjusted a little as it has a couple minor crazing marks in the corners otherwise the paint shows beautifully as it was hand rubbed to a smooth as glass finish. The front and rear bumpers have definitely been re-chromed but a lot of the trim on the car appears to be original and in excellent condition. The glass, lenses, emblems and bezels all appear to be in really nice original condition and shows very well. It is sitting on its correct wheels, turbine hubcaps and wrapped in wide white wall radial tires. This car gets attention everywhere it goes and will certainly be a popular car at any car show as well. Overall the exterior of this car looks amazing and is really a very solid body and exterior as a whole.

Interior: *Condition #3+

The interior in this Continental is very nice and comes with real genuine white leather seats. Everything was redone to OEM specs including a new headliner, recovered dash and restored steering wheel. All the chrome and brightwork is very clean and bright and in excellent original condition. The dash and gauge cluster are fantastic and the steering wheel and horn ring look like new. Everything works in the car including the horn, directionals, air conditioning, gauges, heater/defroster, wipers, power windows, and power seat. Inside the trunk is all original and in excellent condition. Again the restoration was about 15 years ago so although it is not brand new it really is very nice and solid. The trunk has all been refinished as well and looks superb. The original jack, spare and jack instructions are all there and the weatherstripping is still soft and supple. Overall it is a great cruiser and the interior looks beautiful.

Mechanically: *Condition #3+

Mechanically this Mark II is in excellent condition and runs like a top. It is powered by its original 368ci V8 engine and automatic transmission. It sounds really good, shifts great, drives and brakes like it should and is a great cruiser. The previous owner is really picky and has gone through the entire A/C system completely and it works just like it should. Under the hood looks beautiful and has been completely restored and detailed. It really looks amazing when you pop the hood and fits the overall beauty of the entire car. Overall it is mechanically sound and makes for an unbelievable cruiser.

Under Carriage: *Condition #3

The underside of this Lincoln is very clean, solid and original. It has factory undercoating and you can see that it's never had any rust or repairs. All the sheet metal is original and you can see that none of the body has had to be replaced. It has a nice correct exhaust system and clean suspension. It doesn't appear to leak and doesn't make any abnormal noises. Again this car has never had any rust and is exactly what you would expect to see from a well taken care of car is a dry climate.
