For Sale: 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark III in lakeland, Florida

$57,500

Vehicle Description

Ford Motor Company reinstated the Continental brand with the introduction

of the Mark II Coupe in 1956. Not a Lincoln, these truly were hand built 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 worlds most wealthy and well known 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.

 

 

At some point this car went through a cosmetic restoration of new paint, and some

chrome refreshed. Wonderful driving car, original drive train.

 

This car has had a very nice dual stage repaint in factory Powder Blue.

Most of the chrome looks original including the bumpers. Original two tone

Blue leather seat upholstery. Original door panels, carpet, headliner and

dash. We can include a new interior as part of the purchase.

 

This model also included a factory tach, one of the first cars to have that feature.

 

Original AM Town & Country radio and factory clock.

 

We are selling this car two ways at buyer's choice. For either choice, we will

repair any major mechanicals including engine, transmission, brakes and exhaust.

 

We can also have the seats revamped in new leather.

We will sell the car with these options repaired or not repaired,

depending on the buyer's preference.

Please call to work out a buy it now.
