We believe this top-of-the-line model will make the perfect addition to any premier collection. We are proud to offer this incredible 1956 Continental Mark II Coupe to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this great American marque!

    The Continental Mark II debuted at the 1955 Paris Motor Show. Its fashion-forward lines fitted in nicely with the European marques also on display. First available for 1956 this incredible motorcar was the product of mostly hand-built construction utilizing only the finest materials available. The interior of these exclusive vehicles were lavish with power features, full leather and instrumentation that rivaled the precision of the finest watchmakers. Power was derived from the 368 cubic inch V8 that produced an incredible 285 horsepower. This level of performance and luxury was not without cost, considering the cost of nearly $10,000 when new. The Mark II attracted the same clientele as Rolls-Royce with numerous famous owners including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Nelson Rockefeller, and U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. Only 3,005 would be built between 1956 and 1957 and today the Continental Mark II remains to be one of the most sought-after models by collectors across the globe.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or [email protected]
