Used 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII Coupe

1997 Lincoln Mark VIII

1997 Highlights

Lincoln thoroughly updates this personal coupe, lighting the darn thing up like a Christmas tree in the process. The Mark now has high-intensity discharge front headlamps, cornering lamps, a neon rear applique and puddle lamps. Wow, you'll see this thing from miles away. The hood, grille and interior have also been slightly redesigned.


  • Fast, Fast, Fast. Lots of neat doo-dads too.


  • Back seat is way too small, and the exterior styling is garish.

The rated fuel economy must be average city and highway. When I put it on cruise control at 45mph on the long stretch between Gulf Breeze and Ft. Walton the instant mpg was touching 40mpg. Cruising at ~70 on the highway usually gets me around 27mpg, lately, and the engine is barely ticking over 2000rpm to do so. I prefer my old 93 to my 97, though, it seemed to be assembled with a higher standard.
Luxury F-15 Fighter
This car is an excellent blend of luxury, performance, great styling and looks (still turns heads after an 8 year run!!). Repairs are NOT cheap, but this is a fact of life with any luxury vehicle. If you want cheap, buy a Focus! I was able to buy a car in great shape, and not needing mechanical work.I owned a Mark VII from 1992-2002 and was familiar with the model. I have a moderate setup, and am pushing about 300-310 HP. Comfort, speed, and a great JBL sound system!Fiber optics inside are jet cockpit like.! I recommend the LSC for its' upgraded package of suspension and braking. Since it has been discontinued, I shall garage mine. One of Ford's better ideas for sure! Thank you Wixom!!
Mark VIII LSC / F-15 with wheels(1997)
After owning a 1988 Mark VII LSC for over 160,000 miles and then placating myself (albeit enjoyably) with an Olds Aurora, I bought this car about one year ago over the Internet. My only conditions were: the dealership performed any of the needed work I asked for; and if the car were not up to snuff we would both walk away from the deal without penalty or harshness on either side. It turned out to be the best auto purchase I ever made! Being a Ford/Lincoln dealer they performed their regular pre-owned checks and needed work, and I only had to hold off one of the more unscrupulous salespeople who tried to sell the car out from under the Internet salesperson whom I initially dealt with.
