1956 Lincoln Continental
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Extremely Rare 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II Coupe
New 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 well optioned with after market 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.
Same Family since 1960
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 inherited the Lincoln from his uncle back in 2008 who had purchased the car in 1960, and is thought to be only the second owner through the years.
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 primarily original interior is exceptional with plush leather seating that was recently reupholstered by the current owner. Sensational door panels and a elaborately finished instrument cluster are dazzling, and re-affirm the quality and attention to detail Lincoln intended for these cars.
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 Out
Overall, this 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II Coupe is an incredibly rare and elegant vehicle. 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!
