Seller's Description: 1983 Lincoln Mark VI Sedan
The Lincoln Continental Mark Series debuted in the 1956 model year and ran until 1998, with a hiatus for most of the 1960s. The Mark V was absolutely enormous, weighing well over two tons, but certain geopolitical events conspired to jack up fuel prices to the point at which a somewhat smaller Continental Mark made sense.
Enter for consignment Mark VI. Initially owned by an elderly lady who used it to go to church and run errands, (yes, I know, but it is really true!), then picked up by the current consigner in Asheboro NC, from her son who had driven until 2008. It has its faults and will need some attention on issues presenting, but meanwhile I can tell you what I know!
Exterior

Early 80's square and rectangle design abounds on this car with its Rolls Royce-esque grille, hidden headlights, opera window C pillar, vinyl padded top, and rocker wide stainless steel trimming. You can be rolling in style with just the turn of a key. All metal is bathed in Midnight Blue Mist Metallic and the padded vinyl top is beautiful, as others are not often alike. The long hood culminates with dual hidden headlights, which work great !!!!Some venting is just behind the front wheel well, gaps on the 4 doors are fair minded, and on the rear of the car is more vertical corner lights this time in red with some horizontal marker lighting next to the spare tire bump out on the trunk lid, (let's call that the original Continental bumper!). Aluminum wheels solid!….Again solid aluminum wheels. Thin white sidewall tires. On the rockers is a wide trimming that goes from the bottom of the car to just below the first bump out of the doors and panels. Paint with patin

A swing of the heavy but well balanced well appointed doors shows some molded vinyl in tan, some faux wood grained appliqué, blue carpeting and plenty of convenience toggles and joysticks. Slipping inside we see some well cared for velour broadcloth in darker blue, overstuffed and tuck and rolled in the inserts and in large wide bucket form. In the center are dual folding down armrests. In back, another velour broadcloth bench in darker tan fairing better than the front buckets, presenting clean and buttoned and very nicely preserved. All this is floating in a sea of gold carpeting which shows a few smidgens and light fading. The original dash is a mixture of more molded vinyl in light grain, wood appliqué and a trio of lined up square gauges for the cluster in front of the driver's wheel. More toggles, pulls and another joystick along with temp sliders. Original stereo unit mounted in the dash's wood appliqué panel in the center. Premiums sound .

Headliner is fuzzy broadcloth that needs minor attention.

Under the large, in charge, long, and strong hood sits a 302ci V8. This unit is fairly clean and most other parts seen within this engine bay are clean as well This mill is fed by EFI, and on back is an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission. The rear axle is an 8.8 inches Ford, and has a 3.08 gear ratio
Undercarriage

Behind the front are power disc brakes, and power drums for the rear. It's Oem exhaust system snakes its way rearward from the engine bay towards the stock cats!!! To a New Muffler without damaging the patina and;
Drive-Ability all day everyday!

GETTING INSIDE it starts right up and off I went. It handled well, accelerated smoothly, and brakes were fair. The power windows are in semi- operable standing. Dash lights come on alongside all gauges except fuel sending unit This is menial in scope of some of the TLC which will be needed sparsely However a new fuel pump was installed 8/1/2021; so no laborious careful install for you indeed. I'm happy for you! May the “fourth be with you”!
I am the 3rd in owners: good paint, great interior, and some non working convenience functions and we can call this car a nano project to get it back to perfection, but patience will be necessary with the “Grocery getter”. Of course most would assume without my saying…..it's beyond worth it!!! And bittersweet!!! For ME!
