1956 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL MARK II 2-DOOR HARDTOP SPECIAL ORDERED AND BUILT FOR JOSEPHINE FORD, HENRY FORD’S ONLY GRANDDAUGHTER AND LARGEST SHAREHOLDER IN THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY! ONLY 61,021 ACTUAL MILES!! SPECTACULAR CONDITION THROUGH
1956 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL MARK II 2-DOOR HARDTOP
Finished in classic Silver Gray Metallic with beautiful special order White leather with Red piping. This incredible motorcar was specially built for Henry Ford’s granddaughter, Josephine Ford. Ms. Ford owned the car for several years until it went into one of the most prestigious car collections in the country. This magnificent motorcar has had a beautiful cosmetic restoration, ncluding show quality paint. I personally believe that this car belongs in the Ford Museum or a large, important museum. This is an opportunity to acquire at piece of American automotive history at an investment price of a lifetime. Bid with confidence – this might just be one of the best finds on eBay! THE LIFE OF JOSEPHINE FORD: Josephine Ford, known as "Dody" to friends and family, was the third of Edsel Ford's four children and the only granddaughter of automotive pioneer Henry Ford. Her oldest brother, Henry Ford II, was chairman and CEO of Ford Motor from 1945 until his retirement in 1979. She married Walter Buhl Ford II, who came from another Ford family, and together they raised four children: Walter Buhl Ford III, Eleanor Clay Ford, Josephine Clay Ford and Alfred. Josephine was a life-long philanthropist, who provided unstinting financial support to arts, education, cultural and health care institutions; and also provided support for Acadia National Park in Maine, a state where she maintained a summer home. The Detroit Institute of Arts, the Josephine Ford Cancer Center and the College for Creative Studies, an art and design college in Detroit, were among recipients of millions from Josephine and the foundation she established with her late husband. "She followed in the footsteps of my grandmother in terms of giving," said Alfred Ford, one of four children of Josephine and Walter Buhl Ford II. "Her support for the arts and for outdoor activities was very important to her, as was her faithful allegiance to Ford Motor Company for many, many years." She was a major benefactor to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Her donations included $20 million as well as a painting by Vincent van Gogh, "The Postman", that was valued at $40 million. In addition, she donated $25 million to the College for Creative Studies in Detroit to promote education in design and the creative arts. She also pledged an additional $50 million to CCS as part of a matching gift program. Josephine gave more than $10 million to the Henry Ford Health System, whose Josephine Ford Cancer Center is one of the largest cancer centers in Michigan and is consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top cancer centers in the nation. In 2001, Time magazine estimated Josephine’s fortune at $416 million. She became one of Ford Motor Company's largest shareholders, with more than 13 million shares of Class B stock (18 percent) at the time of her death. Those shares remain in the hands of the Ford family. Josephine Ford

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
