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 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 weve 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. Youll 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 its 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 vehicle that may just have come from baseball royalty. In any case, its 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!
