While it’s far from collectible status, we have seen some interesting examples of the modern Lincoln Town Car pop up at various automotive auctions in recent months, including Johnny Cash’s own Cartier L, as well as a very cool 2003 model with the supercharged Ford 4.6L V8 Terminator engine under its hood. For those that prefer something unmodified and pristine, this 2002 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series up for grabs at Cars & Bids should do the trick – particularly given the fact that they quite literally don’t make cars like this anymore.
With just 20,600 miles on the clock, this Canadian-spec 2002 Lincoln Town Car presents in fantastic condition inside and out, with only a few flaws to note including some peeling clear coat and rock chips. Otherwise, the Pacific Blue Metallic paint looks quite nice, and the big sedan is equipped with 16-inch polished wheels and a power sunroof on the outside.
Inside the cabin, one will find a luxurious Light Graphite interior with leather seats, front lumbar adjustment, power-adjustable pedals, wood trim, a leather and wood-trimmed steering wheel, automatic climate control, front and rear defrost, an Alpine Audiophile sound system with a trunk-mounted CD changer, cruise control, and a universal garage door opener.
Power for this comfy sedan comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 4.6L V8 modular engine, originally rated to produce 220 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. Riding on Ford’s rather famous Panther platform, the Town Car was one of the very last V8-powered, rear-wheel drive, body-on-frame luxury sedans, making it a possible future collectible that’s worth a second look today, before values inevitably rise at some point in the future.
