About “Lincoln Mark”

A 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII. I have a body shop so I just painted this one up as my driver to take to local car shows to advertise my shop this summer. This is actually my seventh one of these ... I like these cars. They have the Mustang Cobra aluminum motor and make a very nice ride for not too much money.

About “Banshee #5”

Sunset Pontiac in Clearwater Florida produced 39 of these cars over 3 yrs In 1995 they made 21 this one is #5 the link shows mhttp://www.firebirdgallery.com/dealer_installlot1.

 

Specs for “Lincoln Mark”

Has the 4.6 Litre double overhead cam aluminum cobra type motor in it with 285 hp. While newer cars are putting out more and more power, 18 years ago this was quite the "cat's meow" for Ford. Most people don't know that this motor came out first in this Lincoln before it came out in the Cobra Mustang. These cars also came out with air ride suspension that lowered the car at highway speeds.

Mods for “Lincoln Mark”

I've painted it with a true Candy Apple Red (6 coats of transparent red over a silver base) over black with a hint of red pearl on the black, all covered in multiple layers of clear-coat and sanded, re-cleared and sanded & buffed to remove paint ridges between colors. Changed out to '98 Mark VIII LSC wheels. The air suspension becomes problematic when older so converted to springs & shocks. Custom done Lincoln/Cobra emblem and nameplates painted under the clear.
