Since the stopping of production of the Lincoln Continental in 1952, Ford Motor Company moved to conduct some research to decide whether having a premium car would still be marketable. Although all research done showed that they would more than likely lose money on such a project, they continued the luxury model production in hopes that such a prestigious vehicle would gain them enough publicity to make up for any such loses. A design contest began between Ford stylists and outside contractors to make its new design and ended up being led by John Reinhart. This newly designed model went on to receive the new tag "Mark II" within its name and was classified as a two-door coupe with both traditional and classic designs and was termed by Reinhart as a Modern Formal design.

The car is powered by what appears to be a 368 v8. The engine runs but needs some sorting out as it only currently runs on fuel/starting fluid applied to the carburetor. The car is very solid and the doors snap shut like a vault door. The interior shows some age but is still very presentable. The car has power brakes, power steering, air conditioning, power seats and power windows. The chrome is in excellent condition. This is a good investment opportunity and is ready for the next owner to bring it to a new level.
