Car Description

1981 Lincoln Town Car Sedan


The Lincoln Town Car is a model line of full-size luxury sedans that was marketed by the Lincoln division of the American automaker Ford Motor Company from 1980 to 2011. Deriving its name from a limousine body style, the Town Car first appeared in 1959 as a sub-model of the Continental Mark IV, returning as a trim line of the Lincoln Continental from 1969 to 1980. For 1981, the Town Car became a model line in its own right, replacing the Continental as the full-size Lincoln, a position it would hold through its discontinuation.


For consignment a Lincoln Town Car in total square and rectangle design, landau top, chromed trimmings and plenty of passenger and storage space. All bathed in black, this 4 door sedan has had plenty of new parts replaced on the mechanical side, runs but suffers from some floorpan invasive rust damage that will need to be addressed sooner rather than later.


Exterior

In a design that was ubiquitous in the early 1980's, straight lines are abundant. The radiator grille is rectangular in shape and has a shiny surround with vertical ribbed thin posts in the center. Dual rectangular headlights are on either side. Black paint with some age spots, rust spots. and dings are seen throughout. Also, some red pin striping shows up on many panels. Side moldings are on near the belt line, and there is some wear off damage to the vinyl caps that are on top of the stainless below. The roof is spotted on the metal front part, and the landau top appears in very good condition. Plenty trimmings abound within the black field and most are in good condition adding highlighting throughout. The very squared off straight line trunk has side vertical tail lighting as well as some centered red light panels just below the trunk lid. Wire wheels are on all 4 corners and present nicely.


Interior

Beautiful and luxurious red covers most of the interior surfaces. All controls are within the door panels and have a wood appliqué background which adds some nice contrast to the red vinyl and carpet below. Well preserved red overstuffed large velour buckets are separated by a fold down armrest. If up, it could accommodate a 3rd passenger upfront. The rear bench is just as luxurious and affords plenty of legroom. The steering wheel has controls for the cruise control. On the dash is a mixture of blue LED readouts, and analog gauges. This holds true for the radio/cassette player and climate control center. A lineup of push buttons just below the temp center allow controlling of the LED readouts, which are inserted within a wood appliqué chrome trimmed dash front. On top is padded red vinyl and it is in very good condition. Red carping for the floors and a nice tight red broadcloth headliner is above.


Drivetrain

Lifting the hood we see the original unrestored drivetrain in the patina engine bay. This is in the form of a 302ci V8. CFI Fuel injection adds to efficiency and an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission is attached to the back. The rear axle is a Ford 8.8-inch rear which has a 3.08 gear ratio. The engine bay has some rust and corrosion, typical of an unrestored car of this age.


Undercarriage

Some slight surface rust on the usual suspects, with some invasive rust tasking over the rear floor pans and just behind the passenger front tire the frame is suffering from invasive rust and rot. Independent coil springs provide the ride up front and, on the back, a 4 link with coil springs do the same for the rear. Power disc brakes in front, and power drums for the rear.


Drive-Ability

A quick starter, and I sat in the back for this test drive, and it was a great ride. My driver reported good acceleration, good handling, and A/C that does not work and a passenger front window not going up and down. I need to add, I'm going on his word because it was so comfortable, I fell asleep!


A beautiful, classy color combination, plenty of conveniences, and wonderful red velour combine to offer up a nice luxury car. From the stand-alone front grille to all the exterior trim, and smooth ride, this is a good used car. A list of new mechanical parts is available for your viewing.
