Hello everyone my name is George Procida and a few months back I purchased my first 1956 Continental Mark II. We are currently in the middle of the restoration process, I would like to say we are about half way through but I'm not quite sure if we are. Our frame and suspension are complete along with most of the engine, transmission and rear end. The body is at the stripping shop now and that will be our next task. I tried to post some photos to an album under my profile but was unable to do so, I think the file size is too large, I will work on that and post as soon as I can for those interested in following our progress.

As for the forum I have read most of the threads and have picked up some useful information, thank you everyone.

I look forward to sharing with anyone the knowledge that I have gained in the past few months and look forward to learning more about this wondeerful car.

George Procida

For those interested, I have posted a few photos of my Mark II project. I will post some updated photos once the weather gets better and I am able to roll it out for better pictures.

The photos can be found under my member profile in the albums section.

Thanks Mark, I just keep telling myself that the second one will go much smother!

It's been a lot of fun and most importantly - I'm learning a lot.

I will keep posting to my reassemble album as I progress.
