Elizabeth Taylor’s 1956 Continental Mark II headlined a bundle of classic Lincolns on display at the L.A. Auto Show on Wednesday.
Like the actress who once owned it, the Continental Mark II stole the show. That's thanks to its elongated hood and unique color, which was designed to match Taylor's famously blue eyes.
Under the 1956 Continental Mark II's hefty hood was a 386-cubic-inch engine capable of 285 horsepower. The classic Lincoln was built under the leadership of Edsel Ford's son, William Clay Ford. When the car was being built, Lincoln's goal was to put together "the most luxurious, carefully crafted production car in America."
But just like "Liz and Dick," the recent Liz Taylor biographical TV movie starring Lindsay Lohan, the Continental Mark II had poor results. (As an aside, Lohan was arrested early Thursday after a New York City bar fight.)
