1956 Continental Mark II

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver welcomes this 1956 Continental Mark II !

This is a Numbers matching, no panel's replaced, beautiful example of a two year only built luxury vehicle. The owner has added A/C. There is a Bin of Documents / Manuals / Receipts / Brochures that goes with this vehicle.

The Continental Mark II is an ultra-luxury coupé sold by the Continental Division of Ford, serving as the worldwide flagship vehicle of Ford Motor Company.

The Mark II was produced for the 1956 and 1957 model years. Like its competitor, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, the Mark II was essentially hand-built, making it the most expensive American-produced automobile sold in the United States at the time. Ford lost money on each unit sold.

The Mark II, a two-door hardtop coupe, used standard Lincoln mechanical components, including a V8 engine and automatic transmission.

The Mark II was the sole product line of the Continental Division. The car derived its name from a practice in European manufacturing, with "Mark II" denoting a second generation (the vehicle was intended as the successor to the 1939-1948 Lincoln Continental).

Following the demise of the Mark II, Ford rebadged Lincoln vehicles under the Continental nameplate from 1958 to 1960.

the Continental Mark II made its world debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 1955. The Mark II debuted in the United States at Ford Motor Company headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.[9] With a $9,960 price tag (equivalent to $95,060 in 2019),[10][2] the Mark II was the most expensive domestic-produced automobile sold in the United States; The only option offered for the Mark II was a $595 ($5679) air conditioner (used through interior-mounted ducts).
