Description for Lincoln Mark Series 1988

This is a show car in perfect/flawless/mint showroom condition. I have replaced the original 30 year old Goodyear Eagle tires- hardened over time and did not grip the road-many flat spots- with new Michelins. The wipers were likewise stiff and were replaced. It has a new battery. The original radio (available) has been replaced as it was draining the battery-repairs were not guaranteed. The brake fluid was corrupt and was purged. All fluids (transmission, differential, radiator and crankcase oil (yes, it had the original oil). The driver's window motor gear was replaced and the AC was converted to R-134. Otherwise, the car was put through a required Maryland safety inspection for licensing. It has remarkable features-front to back that are in the most modern cars. The features are too many to list-the retractable antenna and trunk, the driving computer, dual power front seats, EFI, ABS and more. The feature that is very remarkable is the electronic air shocks that keep the car level in turns. You don't feel the turns. I believe this is the most flawless, all original Mark VII LSC in existence. This is one of 38,529 Mark VII's produced in 1988. There were two models of the car--The Bill Blass and the LSC (Luxury Sport Coupe). The Bill Blass model had different seats and different softer suspension. It was referred to as your "Grandpa's car." The LSC was raced on the Trans-Am circuit-showed one 9th place finish. I believe the necessary maintenance that was done still qualifies this car as original--it is absolutely not a restore. It is as clean underneath the car as on top. In addition there are original owner's manuals and pamphlets, an original window sticker, an original marketing brochure featuring the burgundy LSC with the same burgundy interior (Lincoln reference is dark Cabernet metallic), and a best in show national competition award medallion. IthinkI'm the third owner. The original owner (Richard Fischer) owned a cement business in Wisconsin. He habitually purchased new vehicles, drove them until he found his next new toy. When he died, there were a number of cars in his estate with 500-3500 original miles. The car is currently sitting outside under a custom cover (included). I've driven it about 300 miles since it was purchased. I was going to use it as a daily driver but it is too perfect and better suited to show. It is truly a museum piece/time capsule. Shipping is the buyer's responsibility.
