    The story is not yet over. Now they try to sell the car by lifting the price to 100 Grant. Remember, six weeks ago it was $63,800.

    There's a distinction. Every rubber part on a Mark II is available. Every mechanical part can be thoroughly rebuilt.

    Yes, it is only new once, but I've made a number of cars as-new. It's extensive and expensive, but a Mark II can be returned to it's former glory with a lot of time and a big pile of money.

    Today we went to see 2094 at JLR Classics near Minneapolis, Minnesota. Quinton Ballard (ask for "Q") showed us around. They do some serious restorations, though I believe this car looked this way when they bought it.

    This Mark II is in excellent condition, with supporting documentation. The leather smells good... the entire interior looks original, with very minor cracks in leather and plastics. Paint looks great, I read it was repainted once. Engine and undercarriage look very good to my (untrained) eye.

    Photos of 2094 online are way better than I can take, but here's what it looks like today. Attached are photos of the four corners of the undercarriage. Also general shots of the nice warm room off the main showroom floor.

    We didn't talk price today; Hemmings ad says $70K, JLR web site says $90K, and the sign in the showroom says $100K. Who knows what it will sell for, when it sells. It is a beautiful car.

    2094 is for sale on ebay, ends Friday morning, two bids "reserve not met" at $30,100:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1956-Lincoln...25.m3641.l6368

    I don't know what the reserve is. Two recent data points:

    The dealer's web site says $89,995:

    http://www.jlrclassics.com/cars

    The most recent Hemmings listing #1809181 expired on 02/20, and said $69,995.

    It is a beautiful car.

    Dealer's web site says 2094 has been sold. No additional information.

    The most recent ebay listing expired with "reserve not met."
