1987 Lincoln Town Car
If you've been in a large American city like New York or Chicago
you may have noticed that the streetscape seems dominated by two
types of cars: taxis and big black sedans. Although taxis can be
any number of colors, limo service cars seem to be black. Those
black sedans are likely to be Lincoln Town Cars. They have become
such a fixture for livery and limo services that no one even
bothers to call them by their full names anymore. They just say
"I'll have a Town Car". (Thx to Autopolis)
For consignment, a professionally executed well maintained Town Car
from 1987. Square and rectangle design right out of the mod 1980's
and all straight and true car. She a long luxury car with plenty of
amenities, and definitely" what a luxury car should be"
Traditional meant that the Town Car would be large and comfortable.
Baroque styling at its best, (or worst), the Town Car's sharp
creased fenders gives way to a boxy Rolls Royce-like grille. This
is flanked by rectangular headlights on either side, and a corner
turn signal light on the quarters in front. Trimmings are several
and run the length of the car at the hood/body seam, on the belt
line just below the belt line, and on the rockers. Also, the wheel
wells are trimmed as are the windows. A blue canvas top covers the
passenger compartment and is slightly faded, but still looks great
with the Glacier Blue exterior paint. Speaking of which it shows
some scratches, chips and small dents and dings but retains its
shine. Finishing off the large trunk deck are vertically oriented
taillights on each corner, with a large red strip of lighting
running across the back just above a shiny big rear bumper. Spoked
wheel covers with a large octagonal nut hub are wrapped by like new
thin white side wall radials all around.
Excessive use of many surfaces abounds on the door panels with
molded plastic, fuzzy padded broadcloth, burl wood applique and of
course shiny handles and toggles. Even throw in a strip of blue
carpeting at the bottom and this is just the doors! Power seats,
power windows, power mirrors, and full-on climate controls are just
the beginnings of the lap of luxury this car has to offer. A full
burl wood dash front houses square gauges and readouts, and square
and rectangular panels make up the rest of the controls. Padded
blue velour is covering the wide front split bench seats and in
back a large plenty of legroom rear bench stretches from side to
side. All seats are slightly faded and show some light to medium
wear. Blue floor carpeting is good and the headliner also in fuzzy
blue broadcloth is tightly adhered to a molded headliner panel.
Under the unrestored but well-maintained engine bay is a
mechanically maintained 302ci V8 with EFI. On the back is an AOD
4-speed automatic and way back is a Ford 8.8-inch 3.27 conventional
rear axle. The overall appearance under the hood is clean and
Some patina even less spotty surface rust on the usual suspects,
but overall strong rust free structure. Power disc brakes for the
front, and power drums for the rear, and the suspension is
independent with coil springs in the front and a 4 link system with
coil springs in the rear.
A quick starter all did very nicely on our test drive, (one of the
benefits of working at Classic Auto Mall). All smooth ride,
shifting, and acceleration. Ease of operation is a definite plus
for this big skate.
New window motors, a new A/C system, A fresh oil change with new
valve cover gaskets and intake gaskets, and the transmission
serviced, it's all good on the Town Car front, so come in make an
offer and turn the key. Then it can impress your neighbors in your
