Near the close of the 1990s, this car was given a cosmetic restoration and a re-paint in its original rich, dark metallic blue. The current owner acquired the car in 2005 and since than has been given new carpeting, a new steering box, new brakes, and all new suspension. It came from the factory with air conditioning and has accumulated less than 46,000 miles since new.
In 2009, this 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. It was expected to sell for $40,000 - $50,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for a high bid of $35,200, including buyer's premium.
