DESCRIPTION

1990 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series Sedan

For consignment, a one owner Lincoln Town car with a title verified 18,291 actual miles. It\'s clear the owner has cherished this car and kept it in immaculate condition. Due to ownership lifestyles, we often see well maintained, low mileage Town Cars and they remain desirable to a set of enthusiasts who adore the Panther Platform and recognize the Town Car as one of America\'s premiere luxury cars. This car is an exemplary representation of the attention to quality.

Exterior
Our car is wearing Twilight Blue Metallic, which Lincoln selected for the cover car of the 1990 dealer brochure. This one has the optional fabric \"carriage roof\" which is not only in excellent condition, but adds a sense of richness to the car and was a common trend in the early 90\'s. \"Signature Series\" is embroidered on the wide C-pillars. Returning to the paint, we can find no major flaws and the clearcoat retains its luster. The chrome bumpers, grille, rocker panels and other brightwork glisten without fault. Unlike the first gen Town Cars, this one is rounder, with body panels flowing seamlessly into the next. The hood is long and stately, and the trunk is iconically large and wide. 15-inch mesh-style wheels are new for 1990 and the yellow lined tires add a touch of color to the big blue car.

Interior
Light Titanium is the interior color which contrasts nicely with the darker exterior. The door panels have mixed materials including leather wrapped armrests, carpeted bottoms, and faux wood applique. The split buckets front seats are equipped with auxiliary \"pillows,\" all leather wrapped and ready to cradle occupants in the literal lap of luxury. The rear passengers will be comfortable too with high backed, overstuffed cushions and a center fold-down armrest. The no nonsense steering wheel is leather wrapped while the entire dash is lined in faux wood grain. Despite the obvious plastic construction, it does provide an air of luxury and warmth. The gauge cluster is comprised of a row of square digital readouts with the green digital font that was so groundbreaking at the time, and now is looked to with fond nostalgia. More importantly, all the digits seem to function properly and are not missing segments as is often the case. A passenger side airbag is hidden by a brown vinyl panel which matches the dash cover. We note an aftermarket AM/FM/CD that is of more modern vintage. The light colored carpet is very clean as is the headliner where dome lights function properly. The trunk is finished in a gray flannel material and is immaculate.

Drivetrain
The unmistakable 5.0 intake manifold sits center stage in the engine bay, gleaming like it just left the factory. This is the 302co V8, original to the car of course, and fuel is delivered via electronic fuel injection. The AOD four-speed automatic transmission has overdrive and sends power to the rear wheels via an 8.8\" rear with 3.55 TracLoc gears. The hood pad is intact and looks good. Power disc brakes engage the front wheels, while power drums provide the back up. The presentation under the hood is stock and show quality for a 34 year old Lincoln.

Undercarriage
All very clean underneath and indicative of an 18,000 mile vehicle that\'s been well maintained. There is surface rust in typical areas; rear axle, driveshaft, and metal suspension components all normal for the miles, age and single owner care. The Signature Series received dual exhaust from the manifolds which have separate catalytic converters, then join into one pipe where it enters the original equipment muffler before exiting to the back on the right side. Independent front suspension with coil springs soften the ride up front while 4-link suspension equipped with air bags ensure a comfortable ride in the back. The undercarriage overall is clean and dry.

Drive-Ability
We vowed not to be lulled to sleep in the Lazy Boy comfort of the front seats. The 5.0 started right up and we maneuvered the column shifter into place. It almost feels like a new car as we take our lap and it still provides all the quiet, smooth luxury you might expect. Despite producing just 150 horsepower, the car accelerated adequately and stopped well. Turn in produced some yaw but straight ahead driving is glass smooth. The brand\'s flagship model at the time did not disappoint and could rival some modern cars we\'ve driven in comfort. During the drive, we noted that the rear windowsdo not go down, (but the motor is spinning), the A/C is not functioning, and the driver\'s power seat does not move forward or backward.

Town Cars have been called \"sleeper collectibles\" but those in the know and we don\'t disagree. The age of rear wheel drive, V8 powered luxury sedans is over and the further we get away from their heyday, the more valuable clean examples will become. But don\'t buy it on speculation, buy it because it\'s a quality a
