Condition & Features

In the mid-50s, there was a revival of hand-built luxury cars that could rival anything built before the war, with Ford pulling out all the stops with the Continental Mark II. Not merely a Lincoln, but an entirely new brand called Continental, these magnificent motorcars were perhaps the last cost-no-object machines ever built by a domestic automaker and are suddenly finding a very strong market for their unique brand of luxury.

The upholstery appears to be entirely original and in excellent condition, a testament to both quality and care. The instrument panel was influenced by both aircraft and clocks, with wonderfully detailed dials and levers for the HVAC controls, making for a very uniqu
