1998 Lincoln Mark VIII With 898 Miles Can Be Yours For $105,000

Recommended Posts

I loved seeing these Marks back when I was kid. They were so unusual. Very fluid and organic like the original 1940 Continental.

Damn that thing is clean AF. And the airbags haven’t collapsed yet which is a bonus.

Remember the commercial where it was speeding at a bar that was set at roof height but at speed the car lowered itself so it made it under the bar?

This particular Mark VIII was offered for sale at the same ridiculous price 6 months ago and didn't get a buyer. Looks like the seller is promoting the whole "Collector's Edition" nonsense a 2nd time now.

Asking price has been reduced to $75,000, which is about $70,000 more than it's worth.

My parents had one, LSC.  Once you learn to drive in one of those with it's 204in. you can pretty much drive anything.  Thing was pretty quick, and very comfy. Those doors were pretty hefty, I do I loved the dashboard on it. Wrapped into the doors.  Ours was black with the grey interior. And my father telling me each headlight was over $1K because it was HID (I believe the first passenger car to have those).

First car to use HID headlamps was E32 BMW 7-Series, but Lincoln Mark VIII was the first to use a proprietary DC ballast and bulb from Sylvania (now Ledvance). It was far inferior to AC systems such as D1 and D2, and Sylvania discontinued it after 1998. As a result, replacement hardware for the Mark VIII HID headlamps is almost impossible to get nowadays.
