Mecum Florida 2015 – 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose



foose lincolnOur photos of this stunning custom Lincoln Continental Mark II are not terrific. Inside the warehouse, packed tightly among other cars and people…. is just a tough way to shoot an amazing vehicle like this.

We’re eager to share the car anyway, however, because it is just so damn cool.

Dubbed ‘Pro Heavy’ in custom classic circles, the machine has appeared in numerous magazines and car shows since its creation in the early 1990s.

The look of this Sam Foose creation is almost the ideal streamlined aesthetic that Lincoln might have wanted for the production car. Sans its original chrome and silly details like door handles, this big Lincoln coupe rides low on ultra-wide rubber and a brilliant Porsche shade of blue.1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose 5 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose 6 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose 9 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose 39 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II by Sam Foose 38

A custom cabin seals the deal, but needs a few updates for 2015. The trim is looking a bit filthy and the Momo steering wheel is silly and tacky. But there are still factory Lincoln details throughout, including the cool door-panels and a fantastically simple dashboard. Smooth and clean, the interior mirrors the beauty of the exterior very nicely.

The car is still available after a high bid of $100,000 didn’t meet expectations.
