1987 Lincoln Mark VII LSC
5.0L H.O 200HP
4 speed automatic AOD
4 Channel ABS
Air ride suspension
keyless entry
still get about 28 mpg on highway....Imperial gallons so 22 or 23 us gallons im bad with conversions. Was somebodys in the states till my grandparents bought it, then gave it to my Dad and he handed it down to me. so far have put over 6000 miles on it since late august.

Have installed K&N air filter
Removed air silencer box from inner fender well
new oil level sensor and gasket(old one leaked)
4 spankin new snow tires Toyo observe g02 plus 225/65/r15
6 disc changer, Sub,Amp,all new speaker cables, 4 new speakers(infinity reference) and head unit.
Put fog lights on but only as nessecitie for night driving because of the fogged headlights, am currently looking for factory for an original look

Things much needed
Heater core
power steering rack( long rack with inners installed)
outer tie rod ends
front lower control arm bushings and ball joints
rear upper and lower control arm bushings
drivers and passenger seat skins (VERY USED)
steering wheel cover (WORN completely off)
Transmission(shifts like a slug)
Among anything else that could waer out with 185 thousand miles, with all the bushings worn it still rides like a dream especially since it has all working airsprings....which was a problem on these cars:mrgreen:

I guess that's due to the suspension? One of Europes most comfy cars is the Citroen Xantia, but if it the suspension packs do the brakes, lol. I'd much rather have a harsher ride to be honest :laughing:

Nice car by the way!

Yeah, I saw on Top Gear that the suspension on Citroens was generally soft lol.
