Continental Mark VII
57K ACTUAL MILES, ORIGINAL PAINT, WARRANTY CARD, OWNERS MANUAL, REBUILT TRANS!
The Lincoln Mark VII is what the 5.0 Mustang wanted to be when it grew up. This 1990 LSC packs the same torque-happy V8 and offers notable upgrades like 4-wheel disc brakes, a sumptuous leather-lined interior, and every creature comfort available in 1990. It's also a remarkable survivor in outstanding condition.
Ford really was the first to go aero, and the luxury car market would never be the same. The sleek LSC replaced the stodgy, boxy Mark VI with one of the most elegant shapes of the era. Clothing it in silver metallic paint only emphasizes the car's sleek profile and the condition of the factory paint is truly remarkable. Sure, it has a few very minor chips, but overall the car looks like it has been sequestered for a decade and the mileage of 57,792 is authentic, so someone has clearly treated it well. And since it's a Lincoln, there's a smattering of chrome, most notably the big upright grille that looks surprisingly right on the otherwise rounded, sleep body. Big chrome bumpers are another link to Lincoln's past and like the grille, they look great. And, of course, there's the Continental tire hump on the trunk that even the aerodynamicists couldn't bear to sculpt away.
Deep, comfortable, supportive black leather buckets with power adjustments would be the envy of any Mustang guy and they were standard equipment on the LSC. Creature comforts throughout the car make it a great driver's environment, shockingly sporty for a Lincoln. Power windows and locks, A/C, cruise control, and a trip computer are all part of the package, as is a full complement of instruments that watch the engine's vitals. Lots of buttons and LED displays are part of Ford's high-tech look that was so popular at that time, and both the wheel and shifter are wrapped in leather. A factory AM/FM/cassette stereo still lives in the dash and sounds decent even by today's standards. The leather seats, carpets, and door panels are in excellent condition, with a back seat that looks virtually unused. That sloping deck lid doesn't do much for cargo capacity, but the trunk is very nicely finished and in excellent shape.
The heart of the Mark VII is the Mustang's 225-horsepower 5.0 liter V8 engine. The good news is that this one remains completely stock, and the better news is that all the familiar Mustang bolt-ons work just as well here, so building a 300 horsepower LSC is just a few phone calls away. Or leave it stock and simply enjoy the seemingly endless flow of torque and the quick-witted 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which was recently rebuilt. The engine bay is beautifully maintained and ultra-clean, and it should look familiar to any Ford fan who has lived through the fuel injection revolution. The undercarriage is quite clean and it's nice to see the original H-pipe with cats still behind the engine. Disc brakes at all four corners were on every Fox Mustang owner's wish list, and the suspension manages to be both supple and agile, making this a fantastic high-speed cruiser. Pretty cast aluminum wheels and 225/60/16 blackwall radials add to the European-inspired look.
There are guys who will get this car and fall in love, and if you've grown up but haven't forgotten the thrill of your first Mustang, this Lincoln is for you. Call today!
