    Default Mark II Notable Owners

    I have been working on this for sometime and although it is near completion I am posting this thread on the Forum.

    I have not limited this listing to just the customary show biz people. To understand the Mark II one has to look at the spectrum of people who spent $10,000 on the car, when $10,000 was big-time money.

    It is interesting to see that Hollywood Stars were a very small minority of the Mark II ownership. It has been suggested on the Forum that the car was not flashy enough for the stars and was much more popular with their bosses. This seem to definitely be the case.

    The great majority of Mark II owners were Industrialists, Scientists, Land Developers, Doctors, Lawyers, Architects, Financiers, Heads of State, Nobility, Military Leaders, Philanthropists, etc. At $10,000 a copy there weren't many "Average "Joe's" buying them.

    This listing would undoubtedly be much larger and more interesting if we had documentation on the unlisted owners.

    This listing should be a growing thing and we ask for help from the membership for information. Chuck Lutz has done a great job of researching original owners. We hope Chuck keeps it up and others pitch in, too!

    We solicit your comments and contribution to this thread.

    Cars/Owners listed in red are the most recent additions to these lists.

    Pat & Chuck,

    Thanks for this amazing list, which obviously represents a great deal work. I’d never recognize most of these names as famous in their field, nor would I have singled them out for further research. Well done guys!

    Pat, your point about $10M being real money in the mid 50’s is on the mark. Using the CPI’s conservative estimates it would equate to $86M today….. Owners were definitely in the top tax bracket.

    I like the people on today's owner list better. Most of those people likely wouldn't have given any of us the time of day.

    Default Notable Owners List Demographics

    Post #1 of this thread has been expanded with a listing of the owner's by Profession/Business/Activity. This provides an even better understanding of the demographics of the original Mark II owners.

    We appreciate any suggestions that you have to refine/improve/expand this listing.

    "Notable" is really a misnomer, so if anyone has a better name, make a suggestion. I remember clearly that in 1956 my father made $100 a week, and that was really good money in those days. So anyone who could afford $10,000 for a car was probably a "Notable" individual. Our list above is just the ones we have identified so far.
