1988 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series 5.0 liter 302 from North America
This car is very comfortable for long drives
When I bought the car the finish was wearing off really bad all over the body.
Dash and drivers side arm rest were already cracked.
Also bought it without the digital gas gauge working.
Back rear window motor had to be replaced.
The belts had to be tightened.
I needed a car to travel back and forth to work, but I was sick of these little four banger -no room-throw away cars. I saw my town car sitting in a wal-mart parking lot for sale and made an offer. So for the $700 I paid I got a very comfortable ride.
The seats are very soft.
The engine has some get up and go.
The fuel economy isn't the greatest, but what do you expect with a land yacht?.
Kids think it's awesome with all the buttons to press.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

$700 is an absolute steal if the low mileage you listed is correct. Town Cars last forever. My buddy's '86 Town Car has over 220,000 miles on it and still drives like brand new (he paid $1200 for it last year).

The comment here is interesting. I believe these autos will last a long time. I've always loved these big boats, among others, and the one I looked at sometime last week was $1500 Canadian and had 321,000km on it, certified and e-tested. Good deal, but the body wasn't in as nice condition as I was hoping, so I passed on the deal, but none the less, they can be snatched up from estate sales and private sales here and there for low prices.
