We're Park Place LTD in Bellevue, WA. Founded in 1987 with the idea of selling cars of interest to people who care, we have grown to a large facility on four acres in the heart of Bellevue, with new (Aston Martin, Lotus, Saab, Superformance) and pre-owned vehicle sales, a complete Service Center, and one of the Northwest's premier auto salons.

We just took into inventory Mk II, C5681030 (http://www.parkplaceltd.com/all-cars/detail/1956-Continental-Mkii/282/C5681030/~/Make_Continental~ModelActual_~Year_/1). It's been several years since we've had a Continental in stock, but we have sold many through the decades, and we really love them.

Feel free to drop us a line or just pop in to our showroom to say, "hi." We'll do our best to monitor any interactions on this forum in a timely fashion and to be a part of your community. Responses on the forum or via email will typically be handled by me, Jared Lowell, Park Place's Marketing Director.

Cheers,
Jared

Looks like a nice car. Got any engine compartment pictures?

Do the parking nazis still prowl Bellevue? Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Indeed they do still prowl the area...nothing better to do!

I put a photo of the engine number on the engine number thread (http://www.markiiforum.com/showthread.php?t=781&page=5), see attached for the general engine compartment shot.

As a precaution you should replace the hose between the engine vacuum tap and the booster. It appears that someone made the common mistake of replacing vacuum line with fuel or water hose, neither of which will stand up to 20 inches of vacuum. At high vacuum that hose can draw closed, starving or eliminating power brakes. The turn that it takes in that installation will be where the hose will collapse. You should check the hose from the booster to the reserve in the frame, too. These cars are a bitch without power brakes.

Fuel and water hoses are for internal pressure. Vacuum line is designed for external pressure.
