    Default 3417 2010-2014 Sale History - Sold 5/2014

    This car appears to have been totally restored. It looks to be a good job and the bidding is active, but the reserve has not been met.

    The car was originally sent to Chicago. Original spec codes were D19-5275-1A1A - Blue Iridescent Acrylic Lacquer, the interior was Leather with Light Blue Biscuits, Medium Blue Bolsters and Light Blue welts. The Car came with a padded dash and seat belts.

    Car has been changed to White, Interior is Vinyl, with White Biscuits, Bright Red Bolsters, and Bright Red welts. The padded dash was removed, status of seat belts is not mentioned.

    Maybe the vaccuum cannister on the frame (underneath) rotted out!!

    That can is stock vacume storage from ford that I had in one of my 70's pickups. When I saw it, I thought either frame rust or maybe there was a vacume leak that his mechanic was not able to locate. Either way, it would call for a very close look to be sure.

    Previous listings for this car described the interior as vinyl. This listing states "it is now restored and presents in Starmist White with a luxurious Red and White all-leather interior."

    FWIW this listing states "1957 Mark II VINs began at C56K3400 and this car's VIN is C56K3417".

    In reality the first 1957 Mark II was C56K3418, making this car the LAST 1956 Mark II!

    Some pictures from the Mecum listing!

    Looks like the spare cover was made from carpeting.
