For Sale: 1998 Lincoln Mark V in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

Loaded, luxurious, and affordable, this 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is an awesome coupe. And don't forget that beneath all of this is a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the kind of fuel-injected V8 power that also powered the best Mustangs of the day.

Lincoln really went for an exceptional level of style on the Mark VIII. It looks like they took up all the time at Ford's wind tunnel until everything from the headlights to the rear fenders had a swept back look created by speed. Even the hallmark spare tire hump in the trunk got the aerodynamic treatment. So it's hard not to be impressed with the design even over two decades later. The Medium Charcoal Green has the right look of for the era. But what we really love is the detail work. The clear look of the headlights was innovative when new, and it's still popular today; the blackout grille adds sporty flair to this premium Lincoln; and the dual exhaust tips seem to taper to the form of the rear bumpers. Plus, this has just the right amount of brightwork to give it the classic American luxury feeling without feeling like an old-timer. You see it in the way the trim artfully wraps around the rear while framing the taillight package, and the bright 16-inch alloys have an aggressive performance car style.

There is arguably no better color combination than a dark green exterior and supple tan leather interior. This Mark VIII has a dual sports and luxury mission, and it starts with a pair of comfortable front bucket seats that can be power adjusted for that perfect grand touring position. Like a true luxury Lincoln, this one is loaded with great features such a power windows, power locks, cruise control, heated seats, an anti-theft system, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, rear defogger, the premium AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, and automatic A/C climate control. Because this is built to be a personal luxury vehicle, all these features seem to wrap around you. So while there's ample room in the back seat to carry plenty of family and friends, this coupe's driver-oriented setup makes sure the miles feel effortless on every trip. There's even a big trunk to make sure that weekend getaways also included the golf clubs.

Under the hood is a terrific V8 powerhouse. InTech was Lincoln's name for the 32-valve DOHC V8 shared across the Ford line. Oh yes, this fuel-injected 4.6-liter motor is a close sibling to the powerhouse that made the Mustang Mach 1 and SVT Cobra such desirable cars. So you could even probably add some of the same go-fast goodies from those other Modular V8s, but we really do like the stock look of this powerhouse as it is today. After all, this version is built to deliver its power smoothly, and that's exactly what you want in a Lincoln. Out on the road, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes inspire confidence while also having a luxury ride. And the four-speed transmission w/ overdrive, power steering, and cruise control are all part of a great driving pack to enjoy for trips near or far.

This represents a great new era of modern classic coupes. It even comes with a history file binder. If you looking for distinction, luxury, and value, don't let this Lincoln slip away. Call today!!!
