Ladies and gentlemen, Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City are proud to present one of the rarest vehicles to grace our facility, a stunning 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II!
Mark II Continentals were Ford Motor Company's image cars during an era when the then-family-owned automaker sought to compete with GM by making a stock offering to the public in 1956. These cars didn't sell well, but they were never intended to. They were sold by the then-new Continental Division through Lincoln dealers. This car marks the first use of the modern perimeter frame, allowing for a Hudson Hornet-like “step-down" interior and a lower center of gravity. The lower roofline adds to a look that seems modern even to 21st-century eyes. Renowned as one of the 1950s finest designs, these class-act automobiles were built as well as anything in the world at the time. Only a handful of custom-crafted convertible versions were built by coachmakers, but they were equally stunning. Styling was an intentional update of the original Continentals from the 1940s. The engines were specially constructed Lincoln-derived units individually tested prior to installation, and the new Multi-Drive automatic meant that Ford no longer needed to rely upon arch-enemy GM for automatic transmissions in luxury cars as it had through 1954. Costing a then-astronomical $10,000 plus, the cars were exclusive when new and are even more exclusive now. Merely 2,550 were built for 1956 and 444 for 1957.
Our fantastic white with tan interior Mark II, with only 88,736 miles on the odometer, is loaded to the max with air conditioning, am radio, power steering, power seats, power windows, tachometer, and leather interior and a powerful 368 V-8 backed by a turbo drive three-speed transmission. Tons of work is already done on this special automobile including; engine/transmission pulled and resealed, complete brake overhaul, new exhaust to original specs, air condition compressor rebuilt, rebuilt carburetor, re-cored radiator, new belts and hoses, new plug wires and brackets, as original, tune-up including cap, rotor, points, wires, plugs, new heater water control valves, clock rebuilt, radio rebuilt, repainted around 2001, clear plastic covering over leather seats.
This very rare find is available today, but probably not tomorrow.
