We are proud to offer a true rare gem in our Wisconsin showroom. The Continental Mark II was produced by the newly created Continental Division of the Ford Motor Company in 1956 & 1957. Unveiled at the 1955 Paris Auto Show, the Mark II was specifically designed to compete with the best of the best, including Rolls Royce. Most of the car was hand-built to exacting specifications in a dedicated facility. Power was supplied by the newly offered Lincoln 368 cubic inch V8 rated at 285 hp. This power plant is mated to a 3-speed Lincoln automatic transmission. This beautiful 1956 Cobalt Blue machine features power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, power vent windows and a tachometer. The crowning touch for this unique vehicle has to be FACTORY AC! Very few examples are known to survive.

The Mark 2 is an over the top kind of car. It would set you back $10.000. This was twice the price of a comparable Cadillac in 1956. These cars were the American answer to a Rolls Royce. They were constructed of the very best materials, and inspected and tested at every step in the manufacturing process. Only 2,550 Mark 2s were built in 1956. The slow production and high price tag are why these cars are so rare.This car has been restored anumber of years ago,but still shows well.

This 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II 2 Door Coupe (Stock # P10474) is available in our Pleasanton, CA showroom and any inquiries may be directed to us at 925-484-2262 or by email at Sales@SpecialtySales.com(mailto:Sales@SpecialtySales.com).Extremely Rare 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II CoupeNew to our Pleasanton showroom is this highly impressive 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II 2 Door Coupe with Shenandoah Green Poly exterior paint and a gorgeous matching green/tan leather interior. This prestigious classic that was hand-built by Lincoln is highly optioned with factory A/C, power brakes and an AM radio, plus sensational styling and finishing touches throughout. This is one of the most impressive original examples we’ve come across in quite some time and this coupe is ready to enjoy right away.Fantastic History Possibly Linking to Joe DiMaggio This 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II Coupe is one of 3,005 examples that were hand-built during a short two-year production run. At the time, it was the most expensive American production car ever made and was sought by high society and major celebrities at the time. For this particular example, the current owner received it from his uncle back in 2008 and was informed that it originally belonged to baseball legend Joe DiMaggio. Unfortunately, we have no documentation to prove that statement other than the uncle being adamant that he received the keys from Smokin’ Joe himself around 1960.Additionally, this 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II appears to be mostly original with factory chrome and what the current owner believes is the original factory drivetrain. This desirable classic is in average driver condition with average levels of wear/tear to the exterior and paint, plus a pretty clean engine bay as well. The original interior is exceptional with plush leather seating, sensational door panels and a elaborately finished instrument cluster. You’ll find only the slightest of imperfections inside.Out on the open road, this 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II drives nicely with good performance and smooth shifting. We do not know if the drivetrain has ever been rebuilt, but we can say that it’s an excellent candidate for a complete restoration since everything appears to be here in great shape.Incredible Physical Condition both Inside and OutOverall, this 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II Coupe is an incredibly rare vehicle that may just have come from baseball royalty. In any case, it’s an outstanding value at the current asking price and this example has nowhere to go in value but straight up over time. It will not remain available for long!

This low-mileage, multiple-concours winning example, displays an exceptional restoration, and must be one of the finest Continentals available today. The luxurious Lincoln Continental was purchased new as a wedding gift in 1956, by Fred Lagomarsino, for his bride Claribel Lagomarsino. The couple would settle down in Tulare, California, where the car would remain for the next 32 years. Dr. Peter Kruger also of Tulare purchased the Continental Coupe in 1988, at which point the car had accumulated just over 20,239 miles. Dr. Kruger had been actively involved with the Lincoln Continental Owners Club for 25 years, and his Continentals were recognized as exceptional examples, having won all the LCOC Major Trophies. Dr. Kruger repainted the car in the original white, but left the balance of the cars cosmetics alone due to their exceptional original and well-preserved conditions. The beautiful Continental would soon after make its first appearance on the concours scene. At the September 1988 LCOC Western National Meet the white Coupe won 1st in Class; Best V-8 Engine and the coveted Ford Motor Company Trophy for the best Mk II against a field of 7 Mk II Continentals. The concours-winning Continental was later purchased by prominent collector Abbey Silverstone, and remained in Mr. Silverstones possession until it was purchased by the consignor; a California-based enthusiast with a taste for the best of the best. During Mr. Silverstones ownership the Continental was kept in a climate controlled environment, and used sparingly. Today, this luxurious Continental remains in exceptional condition. The odometer reads less than 21,000 miles; a figure indeed believed to be the cars mileage from new. The car is offered with an original owner’s manual, factory service manual, LCOC manuals, tools and history file.
