This is a continuation of our special Panther Edition Weekend. So, many of you are asking why I am doing this Special Panther Edition Weekend, and can we get something other than Ford Posts? I thought this was as good a time as any to explain the weekend postings here on Hooniverse. Since I took over the editing Weekends here, I have been striving to try and carve out a “destination” for all of our fans to check out on the weekends. I stumbled onto having a special set of postings, or themes if you will, about a year ago with the Hooniverse Maximum Corvair Day edition. Since then, I have done a Malaise-O-Rama Weekend, A Van-Tastic Weekend, A Fabulous Fins Weekend, A Lost Car Weekend, and a Rare Foreign Car Weekend, among others.
So this is the Hooniverse Panther Edition Weekend, in honor of the Last Ford Crown Victoria that was produced this past Thursday. We have discovered a Supercharged Crown Victoria, A Rare 2-Door LTD Crown Victoria, A Metric Mercury Marauder, A Lincoln Continental Mark VI Givenchy, A Lincoln Town Hearse, Two Panther Wagons, A Box and a Bubble, and this one. Here we are with two very low mileage, Panther based Lincoln Town Cars, separated by a decade of production. Which one is more desirable?
Let’s start with the older car, which is a 1984 Lincoln Continental Town Car, finished in a beautiful Sky Blue, and a Dark Blue Leather Interior. This car has just over 57,000 miles on the odometer, and according to the listing:
THIS CAR FIRES RIGHT UP WITH THE TURN OF THE KEY AND DRIVES LIKE A DREAM! THE RIDE IS SO SMOOTH!
POWER STEERING IS EFFORTLESS! BRAKES ARE GREAT! ALL POWER WINDOWS WORK! POWER DOOR LOCKS WORK! POWER ANTENNA AND RADIO WORKS! ALL LIGHTS (EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR) WORK! AIR CONDITIONING BLOWS COLD!! ALL INSTRUMENTATION WORKS (LOOK AT THE MILES TO EMPTY DISPLAY)! THE 5.0L WINDSOR V8 MOVES OUT WITH 155 HORSEPOWER AND 265 LB/FT OF TORQUE!
This car has a Buy-it-Now price of $4,500, which isn’t really too bad in the conditions its in. See the listing here.
The listing for our next car has ended, but its still one very classy, if a bit overwrought, Lincoln Town Car. This car is finished in a Kelly Green, with a Green Carriage Roof, and a Tan Leather Interior. This one shows only 29,000 miles, and according to the listing:
1994 Lincoln Town Car “Executive Series”: Only 29,130 Actual Miles, Dark Green w/ Tan Leather, Green Top, Loaded w/ All Lincoln Town Car Options!!!!! ***Never In An Accident*** All Owner’s Manuals, Spare Tire Never Down, ***ABSOLUTELY LIKE SHOWROOM NEW!!!!!**** BOUGHT NEW AT NICK MAYER LINCOLN-MERCURY!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE LOWEST MILEAGE AND NICEST 94′ TOWN CARS IN THE COUNTRY!
This dealer is in Western New York, and the dealer he talked about in the ad is based near Cleveland Ohio, so I don’t get the connection. Anyway, it looks like this car sold for the $9,900 Buy-it-Now asking price, or not (who knows). See the listing here.
Are either of these two Lincoln Town Cars worth the money, or would you kust pass them by. Let me know, and please comment about our Hooniverse Theme Weekends in general.
