The 56 Continental Mark II was known as "The Car of The Stars". Being the most expensive car on the market in 1956 with an MSRP of $10,400, it was a very popular car with the Hollywood stars.  This Mark II is in need of restoration. Mechanically, it runs well, but will definitely need some work.  There are signs of previous body work and we don't know the history of the car, so it's hard to say just how much was done. It looks like a restoration was done many years ago.  The interior upholstery is not in bad condition at all.   The factory a/c unit is not working. 

Some of the gauges are working, the tach works but the speedometer does not.  The headliner is in good condition except for around the 2 overhead a/c vents.   The original vin tag is intact.   The town and country radio does not work.

The chrome door jam covers are both there. The passenger side one has some sratches on it.  Looking down into the inner fenders from the trunk it appears to be very solid on both sides.  The chrome and bright work are in good condition but will need some restoration as well.   Most of the power windows are working and there is a broken window on the rear driver's side.  The 368 V-8 runs well. The carburetor was recently rebuilt, as well as the TredleVac.   We believe this to be the original engine, but have not checked numbers.  The undercarriage has an undercoating on it and appears to be solid, but will need some work.  This Mark II is an excellent candidate for restoration. It's all here and can be brought back to it's original splendor, and It will then make a great addition to someone's collection.
