1986 Lincoln Mark VII LSC V8 5.0L High Output from North America
Luxury with muscle
The ONLY one MAJOR problem was when the ABS pump failed (when I was driving, thankfully at a slow speed, I built up enough back pressure to stop the car). Cost of repair: $1500.
Otherwise, last year when the car turned 15, I replaced all the hoses and lines as a preventative measure.
This is a great car, the Mark series by Lincoln are by far some of the best cars I have ever driven (I even test drove the Mark VIII, and she handles like a dream). I was given this car as a hand-me-down from my parents when (they purchased it in 86), and even today I would chose this car over any other.
The car may seem big and bulky, but the handling is actually very responsive.
I will probably do some performance upgrades, like change the exhaust system to make it breathe better.
Otherwise I say again, this is a great all around car, a luxury car with muscle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
