This is the beginning of a long and expensive process which will hopefully end up in a beatiful part of American history.
Here is the original dealer invoice.
Production order for a Mark II for customer "Frank Sinatra" This came from the archives at the Benson Ford Research Center
This is an interesting letter from the V.P. of the dealership that sold the car to Mr. Sinatra to the head of marketing at Continental "Douglas McClure". Celebrity ownership was obviously very important to the car's success.
Images from the 1956 Frank Sinatra film "High Society" depicting a Black Continental Mark II with what appears to be Medium Gray and White interior.

Great work with the resto so far. Should be beautiful when she's done.
That's my next lincoln project when i sell this one!
Wow, I guess that documentation puts any doubts to rest. So what about Elvis' Mark II? Anyone found that?
My Mark II was an introductory unit (the first 300 made) so the Benson Ford Museum only has records that show it was assigned to a now defunct dealership.
great car was this frank sinatras car or one like it just thought id ask its beautiful your a lucky person but you also did a lot of hard work it really paid off the car is great..............loren
