For Sale: 1998 Lincoln Mark V in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is a true modern classic. That means you get the best traditional ideas, like a large and luxurious coupe made for grand touring comfort. But it achieves this through modern features with a 32-valve fuel-injected V8, fully independent suspension, and beautifully sleek sheet metal.

The Mark series is a true legend. Nowhere else did you get such a balance of luxury, style, and individual spirit. And the final version, the Mark VIII, was arguably the best showcase of them all. It hides its long and luxurious style within curvaceous lines to remind you that it can be both sizable and sporty. White is a timelessly elegant color, but the factory-correct Ivory Metallic takes the sophistication up a notch. It delivers a nice mix of a softer tone that also has a radiant gloss. This coupe has averaged about 3,300 miles annually. That gives you a good balance where this hasn't spent its life as a suburban commuter, but it also has a road-ready style where you won't hesitate to take this out for weekend getaways near or far. And a beautifully designed car like this deserves to be shared with the world. The 16-inch alloy wheels look like waves; the headlights are a polish away from being crystal-clear; and there's a hint of the classic continental kit curve in the trunk.

If you like the way the ivory paint gives the exterior a bright and sophisticated style, then you're going to love the ivory interior. And what really makes it impressive is the level of care that has gone into this one where the leather seats are supple, the carpeting is plush, the dash is smooth, and the overall impression is pure luxury. What also makes this feel so inviting is the level of equipment. You have power front seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, an anti-theft system, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, a rear defogger, and automatic A/C climate control. There's even an upgrade to an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. When you sit down in the driver's seat, you'll be impressed by how the full interior seems to be oriented around you like a sports car. But most other exotics don't have the trunk space for your golf clubs and weekend bags at the same time.

The engine is part of what is going to keep these Mark VIIIs in such demand. InTech was Lincoln's name for the 32-valve DOHC V8 shared across the Ford line. So this has a bloodline with impressive power cars like the Mustang Mach 1 and SVT Cobra. So it certainly has the potential to be upgraded into one of the coolest/sleekest sleepers around, but we bet you really know what all that versatile power is really for. It's currently to be swift and smooth so that you can describe the driving experience as "effortless." That's why the four-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly all the way into overdrive. Out on the road, the fully independent suspension, upgraded coilover shocks, and four-wheel disc brakes inspire confidence.

Complete with the owner's manual, this was the final year for the Mark VIII. It's the true last of the personal luxury Lincoln coupes, but this one is so sleek and well-presented that many people may not believe it's almost ready for vintage plates. Call today!!!
