This is a beautiful and meticulously well maintained 1998 Lincoln
Mark VIII Coupe. Long term ownership doesn't even begin to describe
the level of pride that is evident in the level of care of this
sport luxury coupe. With just under 80,000 original miles, this
beauty has spent more time in a garage than on the road. The clean
CARFAX report and the 2-inch binder of all ownership and service
records show that this Lincoln has spent the entirety of its life
in warm weather in Florida and now in Arizona. The exterior of this
Lincoln is finished in its original Charcoal Green color and
appears to be well maintained. This Charcoal Green has a metallic
appearance to it, with great shine and catches the light very well.
We did notice the typical areas where paint may have chipped off
from rocks, but those areas have been touched up. The glass is
clean all the way around and has a soft tint to it to help keep the
interior cool. The trim along the doors is in good shape, but not
perfect. The wheels look like they are brand new, and still have a
sporty appearance to them. The interior of this Mark VIII has been
well preserved. The front leather seats feel like new, but are
showing signs of light wear with minor cracking. The rear seats
look like they have been barely sat in in the twenty three years
that this coupe has been on the road. The carpets are clean and
showing little sign of age. All instrumentation is functioning and
is free of imperfection, including the driver information center in
the center stack. This Lincoln is equipped with a CD changer in the
trunk, and the JBL factory upgraded stereo sounds great. The Mark
VIII was best known for its 4.6L V8 engine that would go on to be
used in the vaunted Mustang Cobra in the latter half of the '90s.
This engine fires right up and feels as hearty as when it was new.
The automatic transmission shifts flawlessly, as expected of a
luxury performance cruiser. The tires are like new and the
suspension and steering help the car glide down the road. Included
in the sale are a replacement ashtray and lighter, driver side
visor, and a new master window switch for the driver side door.
None of these items need to be replaced at the moment, but the
owner wanted to be able to replace them in case of near term
failure. For details and information, please text, call or email
