Making the Mark…

Making the Mark…

There are very few production cars in the world that I would say don’t need to be modified in some way to improve their looks. The majority of American cars built in the 1950s and 60s just had too much trim, too many swoops and scoops. In other words, most of them don’t show much restraint in their factory design. One very strong contradiction to that trend was the Continental Mark II, which I proclaimed was “born perfect‘ in a post nearly a decade ago. Another fascinating part of the Mark II’s story is the incredible level of quality and engineering that went into building each of the less than 3,000carsĀ  that rolled off the assembly line over a two year period. I’ve found two original films to share with you today that go into more detail just how painstakingly these beauties were crafted… Perfectly.
