1983 Lincoln Mark VI Sedan
President, Chief, BMOC, Charles in Charge, CEO, Big Hat and many
others of importance as these terms refer to "supposedly" important
people of important positions and social status. And true to form
these important people should drive a car befitting to their social
status. We'll have we got the classic car of importance for
important people. More importantly, it's in beautiful
A priority as to importance and low, actually very low original
miles (16, 728) our consignment brings us a 1 family owned since
new 1983 Lincoln Mark VI of total class and distinction. And the
condition reflects the mileage as it is just beautiful in every
way, right out of 1983.
With straight as arrows steel panels all squared off and rust free
and well minded gaps, this cars exterior is bathed in Pastel Cadet
Blue Metallic. Two rectangular doors in the body matching blue,
cover the dual headlights which flank the shiny grille looking in
Rolls-Royce styling, and front and center. A large pristine shiny
bumper is below and on either corner of the front quarters are
cathedral style running lights/turn signal lighting. The long
quarter panels move to the 4 doors and on the way open up to a
wheel well, nicely trimmed in stainless and some shark gill venting
just behind said wheel wells. On the bottom of this car starting
just behind the front bumper is a nice stainless trimming which
floats on top of some metallic gray paint on the doors and rockers.
Perfectly aligned trimmings are surrounding the glass of the
passenger compartment, and on the B pillar between the doors is a
running light. The back third of the roof is covered in clean and
tear free light blue padded vinyl and sports an oval opera window
on the C pillar etched with a gold Lincoln badge. On the back thin
vertical taillights wrap around the angled edges of the rear
quarters and the iconic faux sport tire cover is now molded into
the trunk lid, complete with Continental lettering encircling the
top end of the bump out. Another large rear bumper frames the
bottom and wraps around the rear quarters to greet the previously
mentioned gray metallic lover covering. Chromed wire wheels are on
all 4 corners, and the consigner states the tires are new and in
thin white wall form.
Opening any of the doors and in particular the driver's door, we
have plenty of surfaces befitting a luxury automobile. We see
brushed stainless steel toggle panels, chromed door actuator and
lock panel, and a wood applique panel for accenting. All this is
molded into a darker blue plastic door panel which creates the
armrest and room for these panels. Dark blue carpeting is below,
and a courtesy light illuminates your entry at night. The large
light blue leather seats have aged gracefully with a few folds and
some slight sullying. Plenty of extra padding for the lumbar
portion of the seat and basically these are oversized buckets with
a central fold down armrest. The back seating is just as couch-like
with more supple leather and extra padding for these rear
passengers. Blue carpeting is underneath these seats and is very
clean and like new. Up front a square and rectangle designed dash
houses a trio of square panels which have blue LED readouts for the
fuel, speed, and a warning panel. The odometer remains the analog
rolling kind. Wood applique nice and shiny is below this trio of
instrumentation, and we see plenty of push buttons for the 3rd
panel to the driver's right display options. Temp sliders and a
digital display radio/stereo cassette player with an equalizer
built in, is within its own wood panel below the dash hovering just
above the hump. All surfaces are just pristine and nearly showroom
for the interior of this luxury vehicle.
A pop of the large hood and with a gentle handshake we greet a
highly detailed very clean corrosion free engine and engine bay.
The 302ci in V8 form is fed by EFI and has an AOD 4-speed automatic
transmission on back. Way back is A Ford 8.8-inch 3.08 causing rear
Underneath one can see the care and pampering this car has had
during its lifetime and it's been in a garage when not in use.
Solid floor pans shiny exhaust which is original to this car are
within the confines of independent front with coil sprung
suspension, and a 4 link with coil springs for the rear. Power disc
brakes are mounted on front, and power drums are on the rear. The
consigner states recent new brakes have been put on all around.
As my partner in crime and I walked through the new consignments
that have come in he asked me to pick one of the many choices we
had available for the test drive, and I pointed immediately to this
one. It has an air of sophistication, and is in such nice
condition, I could not pass it up. Off to the test track where all
this original equipment worked great, and the car drove like a
dream. All conveniences are fully operational and A/C blows ice
cold. You can also check the Marti report included for any
questions about authenticity.
A caring family owned car since its inception, then sold to our
consigner in April of this year, (2021), who felt he should put it
into our hallowed halls under a chandelier and a piano next to it.
Well, we currently do not have a piano, nor a chandelier, however
it is still a star of the hallway show with its straight steel,
blue paint, and all originality taking up some important space, but
it's well worth the square footage it occupies. A seeing is
believing kind of car.
