Presidents’ Day: 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII

It’s Presidents’ Day here in the US of A — a celebration that is technically in recognition of George Washington’s birthday (Feb 22nd) but has taken on significance as a celebration of all U.S. presidents alive or dead.  DT takes it as a chance to celebrate cars named after presidents, like this 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII offered here on eBay for $2,800 reserve-not-met with 3 days to go, located in Lakeland, FL.

The Lincoln Mk VIII (released in 1993) ditched the Fox-chassis it borrowed from the Mustang
for the Mk VII and now rode on a more sophisticated chassis that was
meant to help it compete with the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz.  It
now lived on the Ford FN10 chassis and had independent rear suspension,
and a radical design from the concept known as Stretch I/II by designer
Kyu Kim.

Under the hood is a Lincoln InTech V8…which was some kind of marketing
double-speak for the DOHC version of the Ford’s Modular 4.6 V8.  Expect
the 280 horsepower and 285 ft-lbs of torque to be adequate for a 3700
lb luxury coupe with a slushbox.
