History
This car was bought new in April of 1998 for $49,000 and driven lightly for the first 11 years of its life, seeing only 30,000 miles in that time. The original owner's nephew began driving the car to/from Texas regularly in 2009 and racked up another 100,000 miles by the time it made its way to me in April of 2018.

Upon receipt the car had a rust-preventive underbody coating and mid-mount DI/DO Magnaflow resonator, along with evidence of a remote starter system which had at one point been installed. The car is largely rust-free but I will be taking it in for additional rust prevention next summer. The car sees 20,000-25,000 miles annually.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Black)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Factory 4.6L 32v modular V8
Interior
Mild window tint on the rear and back passenger windows, installed by the previous owner.
Exterior
The previous owner painted the stainless window trims black, however I have slowly been removing the peeling paint from the trim. The driver's side has been stripped but the passenger side remains to be cleaned.

Some type of undercoating was also sprayed underneath by the previous owner - a much needed addition to a northern car driven year round!

Lighting
