2008 Lincoln Town Car With Just 2K Miles Up For Auction

In recent months, we’ve seen a host of Lincoln Town Car models surface for sale at various online auctions across the web, including a 20k-mile 2002 example, a 2006 limousine with just 6k miles, and even a 2003 Town Car with Mustang Cobra power. Now, yet another sublime Lincoln Town Car has surfaced for sale, this time a very special 2008 model that has just 1,900 miles on the clock, and it’s up for grabs right now at Bring a Trailer.

This particular 2008 Lincoln Town Car is a Signature Limited model that has lived its life thus far in New Jersey and New York, but it clearly hasn’t been driven much given its ultra-low mileage total. That is reflected in the condition of the vehicle as well, since its black paint is devoid of any kind of imperfections, looking like this large, luxurious sedan just emerged from the assembly line recently.

The same goes for the gorgeous interior, which features black leather seats with power adjustability for the front, coupled with woodgrain accents and amenities such as a leather-wrapped and wood trim adorned steering wheel, a rear window defroster, dual-zone automatic climate control, an in-dash CD changer, cruise control, and power windows and locks.

Power for this essentially untouched Town Car comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 4.6L V8 modular engine, originally rated to produce 239 horsepower and 287 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.

    That’s a beautiful car that will hopefully end up in loving hands. Such a shame that FORD just had to stop building sedans.

    1. Cigna

      This is what happens when you have an inexperienced unqualified furniture guy (Failure Farley’s predecessor) running an automobile company. As someone who has owned Ford sedans for 29 years, I’m satisfied with my 2018 Dodge Charger GT Plus and 2022 Chrysler 300S.

    I saw this on BAT last night. If I recall, it was already over 20 grand! IMO, this along with the high prices some of these other cars (Taurus wagons, etc) are bringing just proves that people still want cars. Almost daily I go on sites like BAT, Ebay, Craigslist and others just to scan what’s selling and for how much. I’ve been watching a really clean and nice looking 1996 Buick Century sitting at a lot in the northwest for $5,995.00 and I’d love to buy it. But I just don’t have the room. Yet if I needed a car now, I’d buy that before any crossovers.

  3. Crabbymilton

    GM still builds a few sedans. TOYOTA, NISSAN, HONDA, the VW group and STELLANTIS has them. I agree about the crossover. Most of those look top heavy.

    1. Tom k

      IMO…all the SUV/crossovers all look the same…like the Ford edge body style.

    Lincoln……What a Luxury Car Was.

    I thought the production Lincoln T/C ended in 2007?

    1. Horst

      2009 was the last production run.
      I’m still driving a 2005 TC Signature Limited with 214m miles. This is my 3rd TC. These were the best cars I ever had including the 3 German brands that I had owned over the years. And yet I hesitate to make a bid for the simple reason it is very hard to find replacement parts. I know it only has about 2000 miles on it which is brand new car mileage. There are a lot of plastic parts particularly inside the doors. They might be a bit brittle by now and are not available anymore even from junkyards. I know it, been there and done it.

      1. Tom k

        Mechanical parts are not hard to find. Some electrical are. But some can be rebuilt. Not sure about plastic interior parts. Never had a problem…yet.

    2. Tigger

      It did at the Lincoln plant in Wixom. It was moved to St. Thomas Ontario for its final years.

    3. Cigna

      It ended in 2011, courtesy of Alan “Goofy” Mulally.

      1. Mr. Kim Patillo

        I thought so, I have a 2011 TC. She has 238,000 miles and still turns heads with her looks! And runs great!! Plus being a disabled Vet, this is the only car I can get in and out of comfortably.

  6. Cigna

    This car should be the Lincoln flagship, not the slow selling Navigator.

  7. JE

    This car is a real Lincoln. Not the boring and incomplete lineup of SUV’s and crossovers Lincoln has today.

  8. John Warren Jr.

    I am the original owner of a 1998 Lincoln Town car Signature Series that I purchased in Billings Montana back in April of 1999. This is by far, the best car I have ever owned.

  9. Nina svele

    Glad to hear that as I just got one my self last week! It needs a little work but hoping to roll it out next week!!! Sooo excited

  10. Patti

    I Absolutely love the Lincoln TC. They are quality built cars. Last for 400,000 if taken care of.

  11. Cigna

    Sold for $63,000.
