About “Mustang”

Not to be confused with the 35th Anniversary badging provided on all 1999 Mustangs, this is 1 of 4,628 limited production Mustangs commemorating Mustang's 35th anniversary. Many of the features offered in this version became standard in later years.

Limited Edition Features (found in later years):

Hood Scoop (slightly taller version became standard on 2001 GT Premium)
Different Rear Wing (became standard on all 2001 models)
Aluminum Shift Knob (2001 Bullitt & 2003/2004 Mach I)
Side Scoops (Standard on 2001 GT Premium, then all 2002 - 2004 models)

Additional Limited Edition Features:
Different Rocker Side Moldings
Special Rims
Black Hood Decal
Silver Leather Door Inserts
Charcoal Leather Seats with Silver Inserts
Black Honeycomb Inserts between Taillights
Special Logo Floor Mats and Dash

Overall Production of the 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Mustang

Total Production: 4,628
Performance Red: 1,555
Black: 1,299
Silver: 1,259
Crystal White: 515

Of the 515 Crystal White Mustangs, only 173 had a 5 speed transmission. This is one of those 173.

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.

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.

 

Factory Options for “Mustang”

No factory options listed.

Factory Options for “Lincoln Mark”

Pretty well loaded with the Lincoln Luxury and DOHC performance, premium sound system, memory seats and sunroof with rain senor. I've upgraded the wheels to those from a '98 LSC version, but still Lincoln Mark VIII wheels.

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.
