Today we discuss the Lincoln Mark VII, specifically the 1986 Bill Blass version. A car I still find timeless and attractive today. It was the longest-lived of the Mark Series, available from 1984 through 1992. Lincoln has definitely changed since I was a kid in the ’80s. For most of my childhood and early adulthood, there were three Lincoln models and they were all cars: The Continental, the Town Car, and the Mark. No sport utility vehicles, no crossovers. All chrome-encrusted and plush; Ford Motor Company’s finest. And each Lincoln model was clearly defined in the lineup, with a specific clientele in mind. Showroom material of the period made special note of it.
