New member
For sale 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC, 64k miles, fully loaded, 5 speed swap and blast to drive. Everything works as it should, nothing is broken or missing, air ride is in the car and working. Leather, moon roof, ice cold A/C, power everything. Exterior is rust free with exception of few blemishes is 9 out of 10. Interior is clean, free of any odors , working cup holder, blend door fixed, LSC floor mats, 9 out of 10. Only problem with the interior is the premature wear on the steering wheel. Car has many tasteful upgrades that have been done with professional care with excellent outcome in mind. No hacking, only top notch parts used. Car is a weekend cruiser and barely driven. I hate to see this car sit in my garage when someone else can enjoy it more. Price is $8500 OBO. I attached few photos of the car but more are available if requested.

I've driven this car. It is mind-blowingly good.

Martin, It saddens me to see you having to part with it...

I have been going back and forth on this car. The only way I could afford it is to sell my DD and use it literally all year. I love marks so much I just can't ruin a car like this by driving it in illinois winters. Good luck with the sale. I wish it could be me.

Its a great deal, it is hard enough to find a low mile Blk/Blk LSC add what has been done to this car..... you couldn't do it for this price, I know I cant.
I have a hard time passing on this.
Maybe he will take a Jeep on trade :cool:
