1956 Continental Mark II

Lot 1064 | West Palm Beach | Sold Price: $64,400

Highlights

  • The recipient of a thorough restoration to bringing the car to the high level of finish it is seen in today
  • Original low miles per previous owner
  • At $10,000 when new, this Continental was the most expensive domestically produced automobile aimed at Rolls-Royce over its short two-year production run
  • So well equipped, this Mark II features the only option available, factory air conditioning costing an additional $595
  • The Lincoln 368 cu-in 'Y-block' V-8, producing 285 hp, is paired with the 'Turbo-Drive' three-speed automatic, ideally suited for this fabulous boulevard cruiser
  • Hand-built with an exacting level of quality control made this car the pinnacle of American-made luxury and opulence in the 1950s
  • Rare and collectible, with a short two year production run
  • Originally finished in the special order 'D19' Medium Blue over a tri-tone '1A1A' blue interior, this car is now in the fantastic combination of dark grey metallic over a subtle wine-red leather interior
  • Limited but deliberate use of chrome gave this Continental the air of understated European-influenced elegance
  • Unique turbine-style wheel covers give a subtle nod to the jet-age styling in vogue during the 1950s
