The 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II was the first year of the second generation. A large number of power-equipment features were included. The Mark II was offered with a single option: $595 for air conditioning and this car is so equipped. The 368 cu in 6.0L Y-block V8 starts, runs and drives well, boasting 285HP from the factory. In 2010 over $6,000 of mechanical work was done to ensure it’s drivability including: carburetor rebuild, push rods, exhaust valves and seats, heads rebuilt, hoses, belts, heater motor and more. Brakes, suspension and handling are all in good working order. Currently, the AC, power seat and radio are not working otherwise, all of the power windows are operational as well as horn, lights and gauges. The car was re-painted many years ago in Pastoral Blue by a previous owner, paint would be considered a twenty footer with a few scuffs. The exterior code “05” Forest Green followed by “1C2D” would indicate Light & Medium Green after decoding it appears the car had a complete color change. The spare, tire cover and jack are all present. The Continental Mark II is a nice, solid, driver-quality Lincoln that would bring plenty of enjoyment.
