    Nope. Here's the '51 Hudson Hornet:

    We have a 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II that my husband bought decades ago. It's a rare car, only 572 of 1957s were made. A wealthy car collector died and his son was selling off many of his cars. For years we would drive it to Festivals in other cities but it has just been sitting in the garage many years now. We weren't good picture takers back then and that's a shame.

    Thank you. It has power everything, even the windows. The seats are that 'powder blue' and white leather. I've tried to get my husband to sell it but he never seems to get around to that, lol.

    As a kid, I remember seeing these Lincolns all the time. Perhaps that it was in St Petersburg , Florida where all the rich snow-birds and richer Jews would flock to in Winter.

    I knew someone who lived in Florida around that time and always talked about the famous people he saw. Jay Leno and Elvis had a Mark II.

    I enjoyed reading the article about it. The Mark II was only produced for two years and then discontinued.
    2,419 built in 1956
    --572 built in 1957
    3,005 total - [2,991 but the article describes the reason]

    From the article; The Mark II was essentially hand-built, making it the most expensive American-produced sold in the United States at the time. They went to a cheaper model after that.
