1985 Lincoln Town Car
1985 Lincoln Town Car
The Lincoln Town Car is a model line of full-size luxury sedans that was marketed by the Lincoln division of the American automaker Ford Motor Company from 1980 to 2011. Deriving its name from a limousine body style, the Town Car first appeared in 1959 as a sub-model of the Continental Mark IV, returning as a trim line of the Lincoln Continental from 1969 to 1980. For 1981, the Town Car became a model line in its own right, replacing the Continental as the full-size Lincoln, a position it would hold through its discontinuation.
For consignment a Lincoln Town Car in total square and rectangle design, full landau top, chromed trimmings and plenty of passenger and storage space. All bathed in brilliant white, this one family owned 4 door sedan has had plenty of new parts replaced on the mechanical side to make it look and run like new and has clocked a mere unverifiable 24,086 miles. While the title reads actual miles, the logged miles on the title is 25,000. Also included is the warranty card, original invoice and service records. Let's sate our luxury bug '80's style!
In a design that was ubiquitous in the early 1980's, straight lines are abundant. The radiator grille is rectangular in shape and has a shiny surround with vertical ribbed thin posts in the center. Dual rectangular headlights are on either side. White paint, applied from the factory, presents well with only a few scuffs and touchups, with the worst being on the passenger's rear door. Also, some blue pinstriping shows up highlighting the upper belt line. Side moldings are on near the beltline, and there are clean white vinyl rub strips above the stainless trim down below. The roof is fully covered with padded white vinyl which presents without tears or staining. Plenty trimmings abound within the white field and most are in good condition adding highlighting throughout. The very squared off straight line trunk has side vertical tail lighting as well as some centered red light panels just below the trunk lid. Standard Lincoln wheel covers are on all 4 corners and present nicely with like new thin whitewall rubber.
Beautiful and luxurious blue covers most of the interior surfaces. All controls are within the door panels and have a wood appliqué background which adds some nice contrast to the padded blue vinyl and carpet below. Well preserved blue overstuffed large leather buckets are separated by a fold down armrest. If up, it could accommodate a 3rd passenger upfront. The rear bench is just as luxurious and affords plenty of legroom. The steering wheel has controls for the cruise control. On the dash is a mixture of black face white letter square analog gauges within an applique field. This holds true for the factory AM/FM radio and climate control center. On top is padded blue vinyl and it is in very good condition. Blue carpeting for the floors and a nice tight blue broadcloth headliner is above. A shout out to the gray felted trunk, comparably sized to a New York city 2-bedroom apartment, but far cleaner.
Lifting the hood we see the original unrestored drivetrain in the patinaed engine bay. This is in the form of a 302ci V8. CFI electronic fuel injection adds to efficiency and an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission is attached to the back. The rear axle is a Ford 8.8-inch rear which has a 3.08 gear ratio. The engine bay has some minor surface rust and patina, typical of an unrestored car of this age.
Some slight surface rust on the usual suspects, but all clean untreated sheet metal for the flooring presents well as does the full perimeter frame. Independent coil springs provide the ride up front and, on the back, a 4 link with coil springs do the same for the rear. Power disc brakes are in front with new calipers and rotors, and power drums are on for the rear. We note a new fuel tank with a new pump and filter as well.
A quick starter, and I sat in the back for this test drive, and it was a great ride. My driver reported good acceleration, good handling, and cold AC. All other functions were operational, but I need to add, I'm going on his word because it was so comfortable, I fell asleep!
A beautiful, classy color combination, plenty of conveniences, and wonderful blue leather combined with crisp classy white to offer up a nice luxury car. From the stand-alone front grille to all the exterior trim, and smooth ride, this is a good used car. A list of new mechanical parts is available for your viewing.
