1956 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL MARK II
The 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II was, in its day, the most expensive luxury coupe in the world – one of many Lincoln models that demonstrate a century-long commitment to the stunning design and innovation that elevated Lincoln to iconic status.
William Clay Ford, Sr. led the development of this vehicle as a tribute to his father, Edsel Ford. With an manufacturer's suggested retail price of $9,995, the Mark II was the most expensive American-produced vehicle of its time. Only 3,005 were hand-built and offered every luxury feature available.
The Mark II won over the hearts of the most discerning luxury buyers and many celebrities including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Nelson Rockefeller and U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Elvis purchased his Mark II when his previous Lincoln was the victim of lipstick vandals expressing their admiration for the star. When he traded in his previous vehicle for the Mark II, his bias for this statement model was evident. Elvis’ Mark II is part of his personal estate and is on display at the Presley Motors Automobile Museum at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
