For Sale: 1996 Lincoln Mark V in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Loaded, luxurious, and affordable, this 1996 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 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 continental spare tire hump in the trunk got the aerodynamic treatment. So it's hard not to be impressed with the design as it has matured into a proper classic. The Opal Opalescent Metallic paint has a timeless sense of style. This is believed to be the factory application and believed original mileage. So it sets the tone right for the car. It's a three-owner vehicle registered in California and Florida. Basically, this has been driven but you can tell the difference of how good care, less mileage, and desirable geography make for something special. 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 16-inch alloys have an intricate look of performance.

This car recently crossed the 25-year mark, and that starts to make it eligible for vintage car registration in some states. But when you look inside, all you see is a ton of luxury. You have a tasteful saddle leather with the right touch of wood-like trim. And the overall level of use is a reminder of the less mileage and use than many of its contemporaries. Like a true luxury Lincoln, this one is loaded with great features such as power windows, power locks, keyless entry, tilt steering column, power steering, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, rear defogger, the premium AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, and automatic A/C climate control. And as a true grand touring coupe, the trunk holds far more than just a weekend's worth of luggage.

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 cruise control and the four-speed transmission with highway-ready overdrive are all part of a great driving pack to enjoy for trips near or far.

Complete with maintenance records, this is the sleek and sporty modern classic luxury coupe that has been given the proper respect to remain an awesome cruiser. Call today!!!
