well for starters. i bought the car in july of 06 from my friend in the military. he was selling it, and i since i rode in it had wanted it. well i bought it and since then have had tons of fun in it. it is the first V8 i have ever owned, and with the modifications he had done to it, woke it up a great deal. not only is the horsepower amazing but the room it has is great too. every body that has came up against my mark vii has been blown away by it. they think oh it a granny car, but when they see the car lift up and take off at a stop light they are like, WOW!! lincoln needs to bring the mark series coupes back out. these cars are dieing dinosaurs!!! not many left on the roads!!!
the horsepower and torque. comfortable ride. anything that u can put on the mustang can go on this car. better styling than the mustang, cougar, and t- bird.
NONE!!! just this Lincoln needs tio bring back out the mark series coupes again!!!!!!!!!
Love the ride, but switch out the front air bags with springs and performance control arm bushings instead of the original oem bushings. Transmission oil cooler and engine oil cooler and your good 2 go! "put it back on the assembly line"., we need more.
My dad special ordered this car in 1990. I bought it from him in 1995 and have driven it for 13 years. With over 270,00 miles, the 5.0 engine is still strong as an ox, far surpasses the performance and torque of newer Lincolns. The ride is quiet, the interior is very comfortable. The engine has never required more than usual maintenance. Replaced transmission, but the ratios are pretty beefy to keep rpms low. The design is classic and still looks good. The only car that equaled the Mark VII was a 1985 Buick Riviera. By the way - the air shocks are not hard to replace if you know how to read the shop manual and can operate a jack!
Reliability, power, luxury, sound system
The brake booster system is the only part of this car I have not been able to replace on this car on my own. It is some type of hyper booster and does not seem to be designed for its' placement.
This is a rugged nimble powerhouse that delivers a nonstop ability at one's faintest touch. The car's appointments are to this day the apple of the industy's eye. Yet the car with all its horses deliver a whopping 22 miles per gallon at 55mph+
The air bag suspension was a feat of genius to reduce road fatigue. The 5.0 engine is the most rugged well designed powerplant that Lincoln ever produced to date.
The only suggestion to improvements are trim related problems. It seemed that service technicians would not be able to return open panels to original condition because the clip fittings would need replacement after being disturbed by being removed again and again.
This is the finest car i have ever driven in my life. Even when i drive 20 mph in my neighborhood it's fun just the way the car is and handles
The body style i love! And a great cast iron 5 litre 302 engine. And that car can do some serious driving if one wanted to get aaway from a place they didn't want to be, whew!! Power
Later on, my wish is to put coil springs on mine, and i know this sounds crazy, but i did it on a cadillac once, cut a hole in the trunk bottom and cover it wit glued on rubber, that way you ever need to change that in tank fuel electric pump, you can do it without dropping the tank
