For Sale: 1988 Lincoln Town Car in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1988 Lincoln Town Car

The Lincoln Town Car is a model line of full-size luxury sedans that was marketed by the Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company. Deriving its name from a limousine body style, the Town Car was available from 1981 to 2011 with the nameplate previously serving as the flagship trim of the Lincoln Continental. Produced across three generations for 30 model years, the Town Car served as the flagship sedan of Ford Motor Company and was marketed directly against the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. Within the Lincoln model line, the Town Car was not directly replaced; the nameplate was used from 2012 to 2019 to denote livery/limousine/hearse variants of the Lincoln MKT. For 2017, the revived Continental replaced the MKS, closely matching the Town Car in wheelbase and width.

Gracing our Hallowed Halls here at the Classic Auto Mall, we have for consignment, a 1988 Lincoln Town Car in white. This luxury classic has all the right option boxes checked, V8 power, overdrive transmission, power accessories galore, and miles upon miles of leather upholstery. If you've been dreaming about a classic luxury car with low miles, 87,417 reading on the clock, then read on and I'll bring all of your dreams to fruition.

Exterior
The 1980s square and rectangle design abounds on this car with its Rolls Royce-esque grille, rectangle headlights, opera window C pillar, and rocker wide stainless-steel trimming. You can be rolling in style with just the turn of a key. All metal is bathed in a respray of Arctic White and a soft supple Cabernet vinyl 1/2 carriage roof resides on the back of the top. The long hood culminates with dual headlights, a large chrome bumper and some cathedral style corner running lights/turn signals on either side of the corners of the front quarters. Chrome Town Car script is just behind the front wheel and the gaps on the 4 doors are well minded. On the rear of the car are more vertical corner lights/taillights and below the trunk lid is a reflective red bar that holds the reverse lighting. Finned aluminum wheels are on all 4 corners and wrapped with thin white sidewall tires. A few dings are noted throughout the body along with some paint chips, touch up, and rust bubbling making an appearance on both lower rear quarter panels.

Interior
A swing of the heavy but well-balanced, well-appointed doors shows some molded vinyl in Cabernet, some faux wood grained applique, burgundy carpeting and plenty of convenience toggles and joysticks. Slipping inside we see some well preserved and perfectly aged Cabernet overstuffed in a large wide bucket form. In the center are dual folding down armrests. In back is another leather bench seat in Cabernet leather, presenting clean, buttoned, and very nicely preserved. All this is floating in a sea of burgundy carpeting which shows as very clean and is protected by dark red carpeted floor mats. The original dash is a mixture of more molded vinyl in Cabernet, wood applique and a trio of lined up square gauges for the cluster in front of the driver's wheel. More toggles, pulls and another joystick along with temp sliders and the factory AM/FM stereo unit mounted in the dash's wood applique panel in the center. The headliner is a fuzzy broadcloth and is tight and gray.

Drivetrain
Under the large, in charge, long, and strong hood sits a 302ci V8. This unit is fairly clean and most other parts seen within this engine bay are clean as well with little corrosion or surface rust. This mill is fed by EFI, and on the back is an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission. The rear axle is an 8.8-inch Ford and has a conventional carrier and 3.08 gearing.

Undercarriage
The frame has only surface rust which is unremarkable. The floors are clean and mean showing no rust or corrosion, suspension components have only surface rust, all clean down here. Power disc brakes are in front, and power drums for the rear. Stock style single exhaust snakes its way to the rear of the car and is in uncompromised condition.

Drivability
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.

A lower mileage well cared for example of 80's square and rectangle luxury. Good paint and interior as well as oodles and oodles of bells and whistles make this car a great toy or even a retro luxury daily driver. A few cosmetic issues have to be addressed to bring this car to perfection, but this car will serve you well for many years to come.
