Lincoln built 11. 26 total Mark IV Continentals in 1959. ONLY 955 Luxury Sedans. ONE OF ONLY 955!!! We have always been huge fans of the mid to late 50s American Cruisers. No Doubt the body lines and heavy use of Chrome. Fins. Wiskers. Tails. and lighting make these vehicles evoke memories of a great time in our country. This particular example is extremely solid and straight with great chrome. stainless. sheetmetal. and interior. Other than a couple dings on the roof and a crack on the plastic dash lens. this baby is all there. From Top to Bottom. Inside and Out. Cosmetic and Mechanically. This is a very solid. clean. and great running Lincoln. The previous owner got a kick out of cruising it down to the lake and got many waves and thumbs up. Needless to say. this Lincoln is a car you just get in and drive. The Original Interior has survived beautifully and is in great shape. The powerful V8 is awesome! You feel that this car is built for the open road and comfort. There really isn't anything we can say bad about this Continental. We have enjoyed it and we're sure that you will too! Thank you for looking at our listing and happy bidding! Here's some information we collected from conceptcarz' website for your reading pleasure. The name 'Continental' was inspired by the 1940's Lincoln Continental powered by a large 12-cylinder engine. Bentley had used the name Continental on their model line. adding to the ambiance and prestige. In 1956 the Ford Motor Company formed the Continental Division for the production of the Mark II. Its general manager was William Clay 'Bill' Ford. son of Edsel Ford and grandson of Henry Ford. Many people associated the Continental as a Lincoln because it featured the trademark Lincoln spare-tire hump in the trunk lid and it was sold and serviced at Lincoln dealerships. Many of the mechanical components were courtesy of Lincoln such as the drivetrain. The Continental Division lasted until 1957 when it was merged with Lincoln and the Continental Mark II was added as Lincoln's flagship model. The name 'Continental' would stay with the Mark line until the introduction of the Mark VII in 1984. There never was a model designated as a Lincoln or Continental Mark I. The Continental Mark II had an understated beauty; it was elegant without the need to be flamboyant. Unlike the flashy American style of the time. it was very tasteful in its design. It did not use chrome. two-tone paint. or sharp styling cues to accentuate its beauty. At the front was an egg-crate style grille and straight fenders. The hood was long and curvy. perfect for concealing the 6-liter engine. Mounted on the hood and in the back was the four-pointed star that later became Lincoln's emblem. The Lincoln 368 cubic-inch V8 was matted to a Lincoln three-speed automatic transmission. The back had the signature Lincoln spare-tire hidden in the trunk lid. Though sharing many similarities with the Thunderbird. these were completely different machines. The Continentals were mostly hand made; the paint was applied multiple times and then sanded. double-lacquered. and polished. These rolling works of art were very costly. The $10. 00 sticker price was equivalent to a Rolls-Royce. Top-of-the-line American luxury brands. such as Cadillac. were selling for around $5000. Even at these high prices. Ford still lost an estimated $1. 00 per car. At the time Ford was a private company and was willing to incur these losses but when Ford became a public company. losses were not permitted. A stock Mark II was $10. 00 in 1956. Derham and Hess & Eisenhardt both estimated a convertible conversion to cost $18. 00 to custom build. That's why there were so few Mark II convertibles. The Continental was sold to the rich and famous. Anyone who could afford the cost was welcome. Famous buyers included Elvis Presley. Frank Sinatra. Louie Prima. Dwight Eisenhower. Barry Goldwater. Spike Jones. Nelson Rockefeller. Henry J. Kaiser. Howard Johnson. the Shah of Iran. and many other celebrities owned them. The Continental Mark II was debuted to the public at the Paris Motor Show in 1955. During the close of 1955. around 1300 Mark II's were sold. For the entire 1956 model year. another 1300 were sold. In 1957. around 450 were produced for a total of just over 3000. Around 1500 still exist in modern time. Only three convertibles were created.
