Vehicle Description

CELEBRITY OWNED!  CALIFORNIA BLACK-PLATE CAR!  STYLE!  PERFORMANCE!  COMFORT!  VALUE!  FUN TO DRIVE!  AND IT IS JUST A REALLY COOL CAR TO CRUISE AROUND IN!  Shenandoah Green Poly exterior with Light Green/Medium Green two-tone leather interior. 368CI 'Y-Block' V8, 4bbl carburetor, Turbo-Drive 3-speed automatic transmission. Long-time California ownership history. Special ordered when new by 'Lee Brown', who was the band leader for the jazz band Les Brown and HIs Band of Renown for over 7 decades from 1938 to 2000. There is a plaque on the center console that notes this, every special ordered Mark II received this plaque. The Mark II Continentals were hand-built and are sought after by many, as the highest quality cars of this era, they cost more than the equivalent Rolls Royce Corniche and were over $14,000 in 1956, more than the average home! The Lincoln Motor Company lost money on every single car built! Believed to be 88,599 original miles. Extremely rare factory air conditioning. The previous owner recently spent over $4,000 on new wide white wall tires, new battery. The paint, body, and interior are a 6 out of 10. The drivetrain is a 7 out of 10. Excellent opportunity to take advantage of the rising values which make this an excellent buy! Drive as-is or personalize to your preference. There is a blank canvas of possibilities available! Leave as-is and enjoy? Restore to showroom condition? Upgrade suspension, brakes, wheels, and drivetrain to bring it to a resto-mod level? Use it as a side business for weddings? YOU WIN! THE POSSIBLITIES ARE ENDLESS! LOOKS AND DRIVES VERY NICE! YOU MUST SEE TO APPRECIATE THIS MARK II CONTINENTAL'S PRESENCE AND GLORY!  Current #1 concours value is $141,000. Save over $100,000 and buy quality and value!
