1956 CONTINENTAL MARK II 2-DOOR HARDTOP
The 1956 Continental Mark II was an incredibly ambitious project that towered even during a time when ambition ruled the day in Detroit. Lincoln engineers set out to build the best car the world had ever seen and did so knowing it would come at great expense. Harley Copp, an engineer on the Continental, explained this team’s concept to the Society of Automotive Engineers: "The Continental does not have the most chrome, the most horsepower, or the greatest size. Instead, it emphasizes elegance, and not only the elegance of appearance. Certainly, an essential requirement of elegance is enduring value. Rhinestones are no substitute for diamonds." The Continental took the high standards at Lincoln and raised them to another level entirely. Mark II drivetrain components were machined to unheard of tolerances. Every Continental engine was dyno tested, then partially disassembled for inspection. Transmissions were quality tested another vehicle before being approved for installation. These extreme measures made the Continental a vehicle of incredible quality, but also doomed it to failure. Even when priced at over $10,000 in 1956, the Continental was hugely unprofitable. This example we have on offer has been beautifully restored with the goal of creating one of the best available anywhere. The odometer shows just over 18,000 miles and while we cannot substantiate those are original; the condition of the interior and the overall state of preservation of the car indicates that number may be genuine. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire this amazingly rare milestone automobile. Please contact one of our expert sales consultants for more information. They will be happy to give you a complete walk-around, supply you with a more detailed description, and answer any questions you may have. Bid with confidence – for over 40 years Daniel Schmitt & Co. has built an unrivaled reputation by uniting the world’s finest motorcars with those who treasure them.

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
