I love those cars. I would love to find one. Pretty scarce around here. 50k?!? What’s the going rate from those now?

My friends dad or grandpa, (cant remember anymore), had one of those when I was growing up. It was silver. I see one around here every once in a while.

Mark VIII = money pit!

The one I had was fun, but it's the reason I'll never buy another Lincoln...

I had a plug wire / plug wires go bad on me once causing a misfire.

New Lincoln Mark VIII plug wires - $250
New Mustang Cobra plug wires - $175
(Same engine.... Same thing...)

And yea.. My shocks / pump went kuput about 2 weeks after i bought mine. Luckily I was young and dumb, with little responsibility, and the $1000 in parts was doable.

It was a really nice car when everything was working though!

Anecdote: the nice ones I've seen on CL from time to time seem to usually have asking prices around $5-8k. About the same as Thunderbird Turbocoupes in pristine condition.

My buddy bought a black one(company car) and had all the chrome etc blackened, pretty cool looking. I couldn't believe I could burn rubber easily in a Lincoln until I saw the 5.0 HO engine under the hood. He did have some problems with the air suspesion but that was all. . I wanted to put all the Mustang 5.0 goodies on it to make a real sleeper but being a company car.....We were turning a 1971 Mach one into a Boss 351 at the time too.

I had a 1977 Bill Blass model. Cool looking car with the dark blue and tan colours. Had the 460, which in the Lincoln was reasonably fuel efficient compared to a 460 in a pick up.
That was one large car. These days, I don't know if you'd find parking spaces large enough to accommodate that beast.
I only kept it for a year. Traded it in on a 1979 Bronco.
