The now-discontinued Lincoln Mark VIII isn’t a common find on auction sites, but every now and then, a remarkable example shows up for sale, such an extremely low-mileage 1998 Mark VIII that crossed the online auction block just last month, fetching $32,500. Now, another is currently available on Cars and Bids – this time a 1993 Mark VIII with just 30,000 miles on the odometer.
This luxury coupe is finished in a rich Light Mocha exterior, paired with a matching Mocha interior. With 29,800 miles on its odometer, it has spent most of its life registered in California, with its first owner holding onto it until 2021, and the next owner until 2023.
The 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII rolls on a set of 16-inch alloy wheels, and features a power sunroof, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and automatic climate control. The only modification this vehicle features is a Strutmasters coil spring conversion kit. However, the seller notes that the “Check Air Ride” warning displays, but this is due to the coil spring conversion kit, and is not indicative of an issue with the suspension.
Under the hood, this low-mileage luxury coupe sources power from its naturally aspirated 4.6L V8 engine, which is good for 280 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque. Its owners have kept up on its maintenance, and it recently underwent repairs and has new tie rod ends, tie rod boots and front upper control arms.
Known flaws include chips, scratches and scuffs in the paint, while a minor crack exists in the passenger side headlight assembly. Additionally, the radio and antenna are nonfunctional. The hood has also been repainted.
The auction for this 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII will close on June 27th, and as of this writing, the high bid is $2,600.
