1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
Rear drivers side of the vehicle got hit, leaving the car totaled. Car ran fine as we drove it home after, no leaks, just a little out of aligment of coarse.
Few parts here and there are already removed, but for the most part everything is there
Let me know what you guys need. Located in Michigan. Car is parked about 30min away from my house so i can go get parts as needed.

I doubt it is, but if the driver's seat trim is in one piece, I'll take it. I also need the trim pieces under the hood that cover the gap between the rad support and the header panel.

Is the ashtray door working? And what is the condition of the chrome on the wheels?

Not the door trim panel, the seat trim panel is what I need. The one on the side of the seat that the power seat controls mount to. Its probably broken, as every one I have ever seen in every 97/98 Mark I have seen has been broken, but on the off chance that it isn't, I want it.

To ship wheels, thick cardboard on both sides, ~2" bigger than rims, wrapped heavily with plastic shipping wrap.

I received a set sent this way by USPS for $25 ea.

If they're not in awesome Looking condition, I'd still be interested, unless they're warped. :)

If I get a few sets of these, maybe I'll rechrome them. IDK.



BTW: I'd love to buy your car, but my Neighbors would kill me. :)

every time I have received wheels through the mail, or sent them, I have simply put a shipping label on the wheel itself. This is used wheels of course, new wheels a bit more care may be taken, but I don't buy new wheels often.

Anyways, I am interested in the cliche thunderbird aluminum upgrade pieces.

Rear lca
Rear driveshaft
Differential case or assembly. If it's an open I could just buy the case to save on shipping

If you could give me some individual pricing I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

I'm also interested in the diff; as well as the far passenger side vent grill, the plastic trim that wraps around the gauge cluster and information screen, and the plastic that surrounds the info buttons and idiot lights above the radio.

Do you think that the drivers side lower control arm was tweaked in the impact?

And I could pick things up in person to save the hassle of shipping.

Aw man, that sucks, I saw that car on your Snap some times lol. Are the rear control arms in good shape after the accident? If so, how much for them?

Sorry for delay guys, been traveling for work and i am barely by the car...

I wouldn't feel comfortable selling any front upper and lower control arm / ball joints off the car as they have been there for a while...these pieces are so cheap to purchase new, it wouldnt be worth my time to take them off...

Sooner or later when i get the powetrain out, ill be taking those pieces off, the car has a 3.27 open diff...lower control arms in the rear, im not sure of the condition as the whole rear was struck and both wheels in the rear are pointing towards the drivers side...

drivers side buttons are gone, my new mark 8 needed them so i had to take them off...

My main issue im having right now, is if i take suspension components off, how am i going to get the car out of the garage when its ready to go to the scrap yard..the driveway is next to the house and its pretty narrow, i can barely fit my yukon thru there...if i cant roll the car, not sure how the yards can come pick it up...

Well an open diff works for me, I could just utilize the case for a lok build. I am interested in the rear LCA's once you get around to taking all that off, no rush

If you sell me wheels, I can send you spare "donuts" to roll on. :)

They CAN drag it onto a flatbed, if there is a straight shot, but that's pretty ugly. :)
