Sold for $67,200 at 2019 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island.
When the Continental Mark II made its debut in 1956, it had a $10,000 price tag and was one of the most expensive cars in the world. Despite its astronomical price tag, it is reported that Ford lost money on each car. A total of 2,550 examples were built during its short lifespan, lasting through the 1957 model year.

This particular example was sold new in Wichita Falls, Texas and would spend most of its life in West Texas. It came equipped with optional air conditioning. Standard equipment included power windows, seat, steering, and brakes. It received a cosmetic restoration in the early 2000s and was repainted with an exact match to the original color. The original interior upholstery and carpets were removed, cleaned, re-dyed where needed, and re-installed. The trunk carpet received similar treatment. The leather on the seats were replaced with a correct match acquired from Keleen Leathers. The bumpers were re-chromed.

The first time this Continental Mark II was shown at National Lincoln-Continental meets, it won 1st Primary trophy. The second time it was shown it won Best of Show Primary Division, Lincoln-Ford Trophy. The third time it was shown it won Best of Show Senior Division, William Clay Ford Trophy scoring 99.5 points out of 100.
