EXCLUSIVE: 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Collectors Edition

By Reader

This might just look like any other late ’90s Lincoln, but it’s actually one of the last Mark VIIIs built. It looks to be in beautiful condition and has obviously been well cared for since new. If you’d love to give it a new home, please contact Michael via the form below!

What Makes It Special? This is the last run for the Mark VIII. This is number 352 of 1290 made. This car spent most of its life in California until approximately the last 5 years it made its way to me in Indiana.

Body Condition: The body is in very good condition, it has one small ding in the drivers door that you can see in the picture. The key bezel and the door handle bezels seem to be losing their vinyl coating. Other than that the car is in very good shape and has no rust that I have seen.

Mechanical Condition: Excellent mechanical condition. It has had the ball joints replaced and some A/C work done. Everything else is in good shape. Air ride still works great.

Special thanks to Michael for listing this Lincoln with us! It looks like it could be a great car to have and could very well be a future classic. If you have a limited edition car that needs a new home, please consider listing it here on Barn Finds!

    This is much nicer than that Marilyn Monroe monstrosity from last week.

    Nice Mark VIII, but those auto parts store wheel-opening moldings have to go. Lincoln was kind enough not to put those on at the factory. Less is more; ya know?

    I had a ’97 LSC just like this. Something was always broken. Watch out for the low beam headlight bulbs, they were 300/ea for nos bulbs 10 years ago. They also leak water and the heater blend door is a bear to fix.

    Beautiful car, and outside of the Mark II this is the best looking Mark series produced IMHO. I’d love to own one, but their age and level of technology give me cause for pause. Good luck with the sale!

      Age? This is Barn Finds. All the cars are old!

        Old is good…but old electronics are not. I’m still running points in my F100, I prefer to stay low tech.

        Well, maybe, but I have 300k+ on my ’92 Subaru SVX and haven’t had a single electrical problem other than bulbs. But I agree that points and condensers have their place – I just won’t say where that is :).

    not usually a FoMoCo product fan but dang this thing is lovely!
    great color, beautiful design to my eye, even if it is just a more fancy Cougar.
    i’d happily daily one of these if i was budget inclined.

    Had one of these back in the day, and the heater blend door seemed to go out at least every other year. Other than that it was a sweet ride.

    I always wanted one of these. Unfortunately in 1998 I didn’t have 40k, I had a wife and new baby. 20 years later that ones sister is off to school, so I still can’t have it!!

    I am sorry to be that guy, but you get more bang for the buck with a T-Bird SC or a Cougar XR-7. You can even get a stick in the T-Bird.

    Classy hot rod Lincoln. The 32v 4.6 is similar to the Cobra with a cast crank. Still almost 10k less than a Maurader. Great car!
