Showing just 30,084 original miles, this triple black Mark III is the epitome of late '60s cool. You just know Sinatra owned one just like this, and prowled the Las Vegas strip in it, the big block under the hood rumbling with authority, while the luxury-filled interior coddled him and his lady companions in the finest tradition. Nothing looks better on these cars than black, and the bodywork on this one was undoubtedly very straight before the work started, and today it's simply amazing. In the photos, you can sight down the flanks and see that there are no ripples or signs of bodywork, and that someone block sanded the hell out of this body before the two stage urethane went on. There's a subtle relief line that runs the length of the car, kicking up on the quarter panel, and alignment is spot-on from one panel to the next. There's about an acre of sheetmetal in that hood, and I'm astounded that they've been able to get it to look and fit as well as it does.
The engine compartment of this car might be the nicest we've ever seen. Everything appears as new, from the bright Ford Blue paint on the block, to the hoses and fittings. The 460 cubic inch V8 in the Continental was a high-compression 4-barrel unit, and the Mark III was most certainly a gentleman's express. With 365 horsepower, it powers the big coupe with effortless ease, and when you drop the hammer, it moves with real authority. The A/C system has been completely rebuilt and uses R134a refrigerant, so it will be reliable and easy to service in the future. Things like the inner fenders, the radiator cradle, and the firewall are in exceptional condition, and all the wiring appears new. With only 30,000 miles, this is an extremely strong runner that rides and drives like a full-sized Lincoln should.
Harnessing all that big block power is a Ford C6 3-speed automatic driving a rugged Ford 9-inch with 2.83 gears out back. Thanks to the engine's massive torque reserves, tall gears really aren't required, and this is one of those cars designed to hammer across vast stretches of interstate at high speeds in supreme comfort. The Exhaust system has been upgraded to some seriously big pipes and Flowmaster style mufflers, which give the big coupe a deep voice that is ideal for its luxury/sport mission. The wheels are positively massive 20-inch Boss Motorsports pieces wearing Yokohama radials, and quite honestly, they look great on the car. Where the original tires look kind of lost under those big fenders, these manage to stuff the wheel wells without significantly degrading ride quality to a great extent.
The high style continues inside, where the original cloth and vinyl interior is almost 100% intact and in spectacular condition. Power windows and locks were standard equipment, of course, and the controls are at your fingertips on the nicely preserved door panel. Both the driver and passenger get six-way power seats that are fully functional and extremely comfortable. The steering wheel is a recent addition, but it looks right at home in the flashy Continental passenger compartment, with a bright billet aluminum center and a leather-wrapped rim.
Cars like this are red hot right now. Collectors are realizing that they are exceptionally nice vehicles to drive, and they were some of the most expensive vehicles on the road when they were new. Pop culture has embraced '60s Lincoln Continentals as well, and a younger generation is discovering what amazing machines these full-sized luxury cruisers really are. With a few tasteful upgrades, this Mark III is surely one of the nicest anywhere at any price. And there's simply no color combination better than triple black on these wonderful machines.

1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II
The name 'Continental' was inspired by the 1940's Lincoln Continental powered by a large 12-cylinder engine. Bentley had used the name Continental on their model line, adding to the ambiance and prestige. In 1956 the Ford Motor Company formed the Continental Division for the production of the Mark II. Its general manager was William Clay 'Bill' Ford, son of Edsel Ford and grandson of Henry Ford. Many people associated the Continental as a Lincoln because it featured the trademark Lincoln spare-tire hump in the trunk lid and it was sold and serviced at Lincoln dealerships. Many of the mechanical components were courtesy of Lincoln such as the drivetrain. The Continental Division lasted until 1957 when it was merged with Lincoln and the Continental Mark II was added as Lincoln's flagship model. The name 'Continental' would stay with the Mark line until the introduction of the Mark VII in 1984.
There never was a model designated as a Lincoln or Continental Mark I.
The Continental Mark II had an understated beauty; it was elegant without the need to be flamboyant. Unlike the flashy American style of the time, it was very tasteful in its design. It did not use chrome, two-tone paint, or sharp styling cues to accentuate its beauty. At the front was an egg-crate style grille and straight fenders. The hood was long and curvy, perfect for concealing the 6-liter engine. Mounted on the hood and in the back was the four-pointed star that later became Lincoln's emblem. The Lincoln 368 cubic-inch V8 was matted to a Lincoln three-speed automatic transmission. The back had the signature Lincoln spare-tire hidden in the trunk lid. Though sharing many similarities with the Thunderbird, these were completely different machines. The Continentals were mostly hand made; the paint was applied multiple times and then sanded, double-lacquered, and polished.
These rolling works of art were very costly. The $10,000 sticker price was equivalent to a Rolls-Royce. Top-of-the-line American luxury brands, such as Cadillac, were selling for around $5000. Even at these high prices, Ford still lost an estimated $1,000 per car. At the time Ford was a private company and was willing to incur these losses but when Ford became a public company, losses were not permitted. A stock Mark II was $10,000 in 1956. Derham and Hess & Eisenhardt both estimated a convertible conversion to cost $18,000 to custom build. That's why there were so few Mark II convertibles.
The Continental was sold to the rich and famous. Anyone who could afford the cost was welcome. Famous buyers included Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Louie Prima, Dwight Eisenhower, Barry Goldwater, Spike Jones, Nelson Rockefeller, Henry J. Kaiser, Howard Johnson, the Shah of Iran, and many other celebrities owned them.
The Continental Mark II was debuted to the public at the Paris Motor Show in 1955. During the close of 1955, around 1300 Mark II's were sold. For the entire 1956 model year, another 1300 were sold. In 1957, around 450 were produced for a total of just over 3000. Around 1500 still exist in modern time. Only three convertibles were created.
