Abes Lincoln - 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 Hot Rod Luxury

In honor of President Lincoln's birthday, February 12th, I thought I'd post this video of his namesake, the Lincoln Mark VIII. When Henry Leland started Lincoln Motor Company in 1917, he named it after our famous President. This Lincoln has the monochromatic trim all the way around, an elegant leather interior, and a 32 Valve DOHC 4.6 V8 under the hood. These cars really do offer luxury and performance in one complete package. Perhaps it would be the choice of our beloved President, if he were still alive today. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching! Background track is, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, and it is public domain. It was provided, royalty-free, by The U.S. Army Bands Online.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Saleen Rims
My 1998 Lincloln Mark VIII in Midnight Grey with Black interior some minor upgrades like 2.5" mandrel bent Exhaust from catback, 3rd cat and the resonator were removed and x-pipe was installed instead, Converted to true dual Exhaust like the LSC models, got rid of factory mufflers and swapped them out for stainless steel Magnaflow mufflers but factory tips were still kept. Also put some chrome 18x9" Saleen Speedstar rims of course for the mark VIII lug pattern, brake calipers were painted metallic deep red, factory air suspension was taken out and lowering springs were installed.





MotorWeek | Retro Review: '97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
The writing was on the wall in 1997, as MotorWeek predicted that luxury SUVs would kill the Mark VIII. Given the current crowded market of luxo-utes, it's unlike we'll see another Lincoln sport coupe anytime soon...
