We are proud to offer a true rare gem in our Wisconsin showroom. The Continental Mark II was produced by the newly created Continental Division of the Ford Motor Company in 1956 & 1957. Unveiled at the 1955 Paris Auto Show, the Mark II was specifically designed to compete with the best of the best, including Rolls Royce. Most of the car was hand-built to exacting specifications in a dedicated facility. Power was supplied by the newly offered Lincoln 368 cubic inch V8 rated at 285 hp. This power plant is mated to a 3-speed Lincoln automatic transmission. This beautiful 1956 Cobalt Blue machine features power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, power vent windows and a tachometer. The crowning touch for this unique vehicle has to be FACTORY AC! Very few examples are known to survive. Slip behind the wheel, sink into the “Bridge of Weir” leather seat and join a select group of owners that includes Cecil B. DeMille, Dwight Eisenhower and the Emir of Qatar! This very special 1956 Continental MK II is located at our Milwaukee showroom.

According to a hand written letter it was identified as Unit 129 and was used as a camera car on the TV series for the 77 through 79 seasons. Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul sat in and drove this car! The vehicle comes with documentation verifying its use on the TV series in a letter from Buddy Loesch, who worked in the TV show’s transportation department along with a cancelled check from Spelling Goldberg Productions with the car’s description on it listing it as “Unit 129.” The studio replaced the original 351 with a 429 4 bbl. The red bubble light, police radio, siren, wigwag headlights and telephone seen on the series are still present. No expense was spared in completeing the restoration. Costs exceeded $60,000 and took three years to complete bringing the car to show quality. The previous owner who completed the restoration advised that the car was once owned by the Hollywood Museum before being sold to a private owner and that the car had approximately 60,000 miles on it before its restoration and engine rebuild. The production company doing the remake movie Starsky & Hutch solicited to lease the car for use in the making of the movie but the request was declined as the production company could not guarantee they would not damage the car during filming.

1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V


Engine: 460 CID V8
Transmission: Automatic
Mileage: 24821 ( undocumented )

Our newest arrival at the Gateway Classic Cars Chicago, IL showroom is not for the average auto collector. At GCC, we embrace the enthusiasts that hold a devotion to big, beautiful cars from off the beaten path. When selecting American luxury, many have placed their votes with GM’s division of Cadillac, only to find themselves lost in a sea of trend followers. However, throughout the years, if you wanted to be taken seriously as a true individual with class, you rocked a Lincoln. Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Babe Ruth, Frank Lloyd Wright, and countless US Presidents would all agree with this opinionated declaration. Take a long gaze at this gorgeous 1978 Lincoln Mark V. With an impeccably clean interior and exterior, this is a shining example of everything previously mentioned; Command, luxury, and innovation. This year of the Mark V was the very last that offered the iconic 460 CID big block as an option. Like many other Mark V’s, this one was custom-ordered by the original owner to include cruise control, power windows, power brakes, power steering, power mirrors, and even an 8-Track radio. It continued life with a second owner, and currently awaits a third under our roof here in Chicago. You can see this lovely Mark V in greater detail in our Chicago location or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 708-444-4488 or Chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.
