The Lincoln Mark VIII is really coming into its own on the classic car market. It's not a particularly old vehicle, and in fact, this 1994 example has only recently started to qualify for vintage registration in some states (and some more are just around the corner.) But the reason for such a quickly gained appreciation is that no other car from this era seems to capture the same magic that comes from sleek lines, classic luxury, confident handling, and multi-valve V8 power.
<br><br> The Mark series Lincolns have always been about providing upper-class style in an attractive coupe form. But this final evolution did it just a bit better. They were able to give it traditionally good looks without having to stand on tradition. For example, the clean and straight grille plays a prominent role in the front end just like its predecessors. But this is nicely sloped and integrated so that it's a visual bridge between the bumper and the wraparound headlights. You'll see these little details all around the design where everything is thoughtfully integrated, right down to the classic continental curve in the trunk. The result is a car that you know is a Lincoln and also you know they wanted to set a new benchmark with its style. This example continues to uphold this stylish image with its Opal Pearlescent Metallic paint. It's likely the factory application and the odometer likely represents the full mileage, and so you get a combination of good care and less use that makes for an attractive cruiser. And while the design is very modern and sleek, this coupe also likes to give you the right nods to vintage American luxury. It's in the classically elegant piece like the intricate lattice design of the 16-inch alloys and the added tan vinyl top.
<br><br> The interior fits the theme of this car perfectly. It has a swoopy style where the dash flows right into the design of the doors for a thoughtful feeling. And while the top of the dash is quite symmetrical, the lower portion is tilted towards the driver as a permanent declaration that you are the most important one in this personal luxury coupe. Saddle leather is a timelessly elegant style, especially when it shows good care as in this example. So the whole car feels quite inviting. There's even good space in the back seat, including useful legroom, shoulder belts, and plenty of plushness. So it's easy to take more than just one passenger in this coupe. But as the contoured dash suggests, the driver is the priority. You get a power-adjusting seat, a tilt steering column, and a crisp/clean set of readouts. It's an easy reach to all the best features, like power windows, cruise control, an electric rear defogger, keyless entry/alarm, a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, and automatic climate control with cold-blowing air conditioning. There's even a retro-cool trip computer with a readout at the top of the dash.
<br><br> The Mark VIII was a flagship car, and so it received one of the best motors around. It was Lincoln's version of the 4.6-liter Modular V8. This is the 32-valve DOHC version related to 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 this powerhouse uses its versatility to be a better Lincoln in this example. It has a swift and smooth operation so 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, smooth power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes make for a great grand touring coupe.
<br><br> Complete with the owner's manual, the Mark VIII may have been the final of the series, but it set a new benchmark and tone at Lincoln. So if you want a car that is modern, vintage, and significant, you need this coupe in your garage. Call today!!!
