For Sale: 1998 Lincoln Town Car in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

If you go into a Lincoln store today, you'd be forgiven for not quite knowing where you were. Ford's luxury division seems to have forgotten the cars that made Lincoln great, and there's just no excuse for not having an elegant Town Car on the showroom floor. The 3rd generation Town Cars were the last of the big-body, American executive luxury breed, and fortunately, this first-year 1998 Lincoln Town Car is a fantastic performer with low miles and exemplary preservation, so you can satisfy your ultra-luxury Lincoln craving without having to settle for whatever sedan they're calling a Lincoln these days.

The Town Car was a great showcase of Ford's silky smooth 4.6 liter Modular SOHC V8, which gave the luxurious 4-door the moves of a much lighter car. American through and through, it's big, strong, silent, and capable of eating up vast stretches of highway without breaking a sweat. The Town Car was always Lincoln's flagship executive car, the one that competed with Cadillac for decades and transported the world's elite all around the globe. With a pillowy suspension, big tires, silky-smooth steering, purring dual exhaust, and a full line of America's top motoring amenities, riding in this beauty makes all passengers feel like Kings and Queens of the universe. In truth, Lincoln seemed to nail the balance of luxury and power by never getting stingy with horsepower and torque to go along with its undeniably regal good looks, creating a car that looks handsome and refined, yet extremely distinctive, and whose performance exceeds expectations. Introduced in 1998, both the chassis and body underwent significant changes, including that rounded lower body, a bright chrome grille, and the bright trim encircling the entire car. With just 26,659 original miles and only 1-owner since new, this gorgeous sedan shows extremely well, with the champagne paint glowing in the sun and showing very few signs of use and age today. High-end Town Cars like this one got big, bright headlights, a glistening chrome grille, sparkling chrome molding encircling the entire car, and those iconic bright red taillights out back - beautiful accents added to an already amazing package.

The tan leather interior is simply gorgeous, with a compact instrument panel ahead of the driver that feels very futuristic, and plenty of real wood accents adorning the cabin. The pillow-soft leather seats are power actuated and heated up front, show almost zero wear and certainly no damage beyond some very slight signs of age in the high-traffic areas, and even the plush carpets and matching floor mats remain in excellent shape. There's some gorgeous burled wood on the dash, door panels, and steering wheel that add even more class to an already sophisticated cabin, a compact yet informative instrument panel that houses big, digital/analog gauges that you can read at a glance. Obviously, as Lincoln's flagship, everything was standard, from automatic climate control with ice cold A/C, to power everything, to a sophisticated computer that monitors, well, just about everything. Cruise control and stereo buttons are on the beautiful steering wheel and there's a powerful AM/FM/Cassette stereo system that in the hushed Town Car's interior, sounds amazing. Safety is covered thanks to airbags and an anti-theft system, and if you've ever researched a Town Car, you'll know that it's one of the safest cars on the road - which is precisely why it's entrusted to carry the some of the world's most precious cargo. It's obvious that nothing short of a Brooks Brother's suit has ever touched the rear seat, and out back the cavernous trunk could comfortably hold a Secret Service agent or two, along with a full set of golf clubs and maybe even the whole golf cart.

With 205 horsepower on tap and a strong 275 lb-ft torque curve at the ready, the Town Car is surprisingly fast, and that 4.6L SOHC V8 makes a sound akin to ripping silk as it effortlessly floats towards redline. In truth, there still aren't many cars this size that can attack off the line and handle top highway speeds with such ease. It's properly maintained and if service in Mustang Cobras has taught us anything, it's that this Modular motor is virtually indestructible. The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission has a knack for always being in the right gear and it just loafs along at highway speeds thanks to tall gears out back. The freshly designed chassis and all-independent suspension are perfect for a car this size, and the power steering system gives it an incredible ride that seems to ignore bumps and can bend corners with ease. You can see just how clean this car is with a glance underneath; obviously it has never spent time in the snow and salt thanks to a life spent in Texas since new. Big power disc brakes with ABS haul it down from speed without drama and it's fitted with gorgeous alloy wheels wearing Goodyear radials all around.

One of the last of Lincoln's luxury sedans is still a fantastic car today, and at this price, you get incredible performance and luxury for pennies on the dollar. Call today!
