1956 Lincoln Mark Series description
1956 Continental Mark ll, 1,000 miles believed to be true judging by the condition of the car. This car was restored by me in 2008. This was a solid and straight car before the frame on restoration.
The rear quarters were replaced back in the 60,s due to a rear end accident, OS panels were used, nd then it just sat in the body shop until I bought the car in 2007.
I have pictures of the car after I tore it down to start the restoration.
The car still has the original shock absorbers that it came from the factory with. They seem to be fine with bounce back and no leakage. I did not replace them "just because" I thought it was cool.
The floors are solid with no holes or patches! A very hard thing to find on a 1956 Continental, s A/C drainage always ruined the floors.
There was no frame damage, nd absolutely no frame rust. There is still undercoating on the underside and frame from when it was built.
The motor is quite and tight. No noises, o smoke and no leaks.
The transmission shifts smoothly with no leaks, nd down shifts as it should.
New Coker wide whitewall radial tires.
All hub caps in nice condition. Important, ry to find them!
All the glass is in decent shape for a 60 year old car.
All the chrome and bright work are better than driver quality.
The interior is now the nicer fabric, nd it has no tears or wore thru spots.
The exhaust is after market, f course, nd it is not as quite as the original, ut it does have a nice deep sound.
The car has the factory jack, would never trust it, ut its there!
Here is a list of what I know still needs to be fixed.
1. Vacuum antenna needs rebuilt.
2. A/C needs switched to R-134
3. The radio needs to be rebuilt and converted. the Town and Country function works as it should. The new conversions make the Town button AM, nd the Country button FM.
4. I have the rear quarter window power disconnected, nly because those quarter window motors are hard to find, nd I did not want anyone playing with the windows.
This is a nice running and driving Mark ii. I would rate this car somewhere between a Number 3 and 2. The paint has a nick or two on it being the restoration was almost 8 years ago, ut it is still very presentable.
I have set the price on this being a car with fairly low original mileage. If you wanted to take this car to the next level, t would not take much, s the main mechanical parts are very sound.
I would suggest you or a agent of yours come and inspect this car before purchase. I will supply the garage and tools to inspect anything thing you wish, s there is no warrantywith this car. I have sold cars before when the buyer would complain about something he was not happy with after the sale. Please inspect before buying.
Serious buyers can call for more details. If no answer please leave a call back number, will return your call as soon as possible. 724 353 2585
