I always wanted to see how this car drove and ran across one. Its fun to drive but I also have a Lincoln mark viii
which is very similar and plan to keep. I am alsoin the market for a sedan in the future so I have decided to sell it.

It needs some brake work and the e-brake needs to be fixed. The battery light comes off and
on but battery and alternator both checked out fine on the free diagnostic at the local AutoZone. It has a firm ride button that sometimes flashes off and on, I read its usually a pin on an actuator that needs WD40 sprayed on it. The car always runs normal but the temperature gauge sometime flutters between cold and normal. I have included a new thermostat if that helps. The two rear tires are greatbut the two front tires need to be replaced. As seen in the pictures the clear coat is peeled on the hood, roof and trunk.

The engine runs great and I just changed the oil in the last hundred miles or so. The clutch shifts smooth and is firm.
The sunroof works as well though the plastic around the button is gone as pictured.You can hear a draft at high speeds but I have not
seen it leak in the rain. Think it needs some newrubber around the seams to stop the air noise.
I drove the car from Georgia to Maryland and recently to New Jersey so it is a dependable car.
This is everything I am aware of about the car and havethe car report history and some receipts from the previous owner to go with it.
It is also for sale locally.Buyer is responsible for shipping thoughI am willing to deliver within a few hundred miles for a feeand possibly deliver to a transport facility for out of town buyers. Serious Bidders Only, Good Luck!
