Update: Because I have been asked so many questions about it, there is a complete write up here:
Added sequential tail lights to the Mark VIII last night. Back in the day, I had a 67 Tbird and I had two friends with 69 Tbirds and I have always missed those sequential lights. In my opinion is is the way the Mark VIII should have come from the factory. It really suits the car.
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!

1993 Lincoln Mark VIII fast bags bagged
stock bags, drilled and tapped with 1/2" fittings. 1/2" valves with fill
and dump speed controls, still need to adjust the back, it moves too fast
for my taste. There is one (for now) Viair 380 compressor, a 5 gallon tank
against the back of the trunk and a 3 gallon tank in the spare tire area. I
put 'fast bags' in the title as it moves a lot quicker than the factory
the clicking is me hitting the buttons on the remote.
.. I've since sold the car, after I put it on tbird springs
Sliding Door Concept on a 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII
no idea whether it's fact or fiction, but according to the nice people
putting this one-of-a-kind up for sale on eBay, here's the "lore" on this
here '93 Lincoln one-off:
"Lincoln executives were concerned about the heavy and wide doors on the
Mark VIII in the early 1990's especially in large cities with tight parking
spots. They were toying with the idea of a Mark VIII that had doors that
disappeared beneath the car which would require no additional space for the
doors to swing open in order to allow the occupant to exit or enter. Back
in the day, the major auto makers would sub-contract their concept designs
to other engineering firms who specialiazed in auto concepts and
executions. In this particular case, this Lincoln Mark VIII was shipped
over to Joalto Design Inc. near Detroit...who created this amazing, one of
a kind concept car and shipped it back to Lincoln for executive
approval...Unfortunately, the Ford Motor Company executives did not like
the design and ordered the car (and the concept) to be sent to the junkyard
and destroyed. The current owner had been tracking this car for nearly 20
years and finally convinced the previous owner to part with it."
T56 Mark VIII Burnout
Having fun with My t56 Mark VIII.
This is by no means a step by step guide but a quick overview of what i did
if you have any questions feel free to ask!
1.T56 from 03 cobra
2.spec stage 1 clutch
3.Stock Mustang GT flywheel
(dont get a cobra they are 8 Bolts the gt is a 6 bolt like marks)
4. Mustang clutch pedal cut
off and welded to mark 8 brake assembly (pic's in here
5.Fab your own shifter like blender head did in this thread mine is the
same but i have no pics.
6. also yo have to move your computer because it is right wear the clutch
needs to go. for this you have a couple options you can do what i did and
just cut out the heat and AC tube and duct tap the Comp up there you can
still put the cover back on and it will look fine but you have no air form
the 2 air duct you cut off. the plus of this is it takes no extentions of
the wires and took me about 20 mins but it is not as clean of an install as
blenderhead who rewired it all under the dash but that takes longer it
really your call both menthods work fine.
you could also go with a hydrolic clutch but i have never installed one of
those so you would have to ask blender about that.
7 u will need a custom driveshaft i recoment dennysdriveshaft.com they are
a little pricy but have great service and made me a perfect driveshaft.
Some other usful links for your swap that i used this might take a couple
hours to read all of it but it will really help when you start.
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/577667 MIke's car
you might want to consider a termec 6060 if you have the cash no shifter
probelm and strong but a little pricyer and i think you have to go with a
hydrolic clutch with this trans.
my car all done sry no in car driving vids
Well good luck the swap will be well worth it in the end if you have any
more questions now or along the away feel free to ask.
Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a
1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the
'97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n'
Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek,
beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII
was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII.
The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient
225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L
V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII
also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper
upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock
absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a
fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs
and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger
rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the
VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About
the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially
the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a
completely new car from the ground up.
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks for bearing with me and the lack
of uploading lately. I have a ton of videos to upload including vintage,
exotics, new models, and some unique things to come. I have recently moved
into a new house for my 4th year pharmacy school rotations and have been
packing, unpacking, and dealing with all of this for a while. Now I'm
finally able to slowly start getting back into the groove of things. I
will also begin working on a new update video fairly soon to let you all
know what has been happening lately. Thanks a bunch and enjoy the future
vids to come!!!

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
