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 teams 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.
