They were built under the Continental division of Ford and under the direction of William Clay Ford, who was Henry Ford II's younger brother. When released the price tag was a whopping $9,966, limiting its audience to the well-heeled. Today, it still shows as an amazing luxury vehicle.Ford created the Continental Mark II to refresh its styling from the 1940's and present it as the company's image car. It was the first time that a car used the modern perimeter frame in its build which created a lower center of gravity, better handling, and a more headroom - without needing to raise the roofline. With the addition of the new Multi-Drive automatic transmission, Ford no longer needed GM branded transmissions in their vehicles. Only 2,550 1956 Mark II's were produced.For more information on this fantastic 1956 Continental MK II, or any of our 50+ classic and collectible cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or always feel free to drop by our 5-acre Bellevue, WA campus with over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms - home of the West Coast's most exciting and diverse inventory of Luxury, Exotic, High Performance and Collectible Automobiles.
