The 2002 Lincoln Blackwood is a rather obscure footnote in automotive history, a massive failure by all accounts that lasted just one model year and was produced in scant quantities. But collector interest in the luxurious pickup has “picked up” recently, as we’ve seen a few nice ones pop up for auction over the time span, including some with incredibly low mileage figures. This makes perfect sense, given the fact that Lincoln doesn’t plan on selling another pickup anytime soon – though it remains a possibility – and collectors love odd vehicles such as this one. Those interested in owning a 2002 Lincoln Blackwood now have another chance to do so, via this very nice example up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.
As one of 3,550 produced during a one-year-only run, this 2002 Lincoln Blackwood is obviously rare, but it’s also in very nice condition with just 44k original miles showing on the odometer. Like all Blackwoods, it’s finished in black exterior paint with pinstripes and a special appliqué on the bed, 18-inch aluminum wheels, a power-operated tonneau cover, and a dual-door tailgate. Aside from the typical rock chips, there are no notable flaws on the outside.
The same goes for the luxurious black interior, which shows some typical wear on the leather seats but is in otherwise immaculate condition. There are plenty of amenities, as one might imagine, including power-adjustable heated and cooled front seats, automatic climate control, navigation, and an Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo with a six-disc CD changer, along with a load-leveling air suspension and variable-assist power steering.
As is the case with all Blackwoods, this one is powered by the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.4L V8 that was originally rated to produce 300 horsepower and 355 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. With low miles and a clean history, this particular example seems like a gem of a find, though bidding currently sits at just $9,100 with three days to go.

I’m still liking the front grille after all these years. Too bad this grille can’t be adapted to the black label series.
