    Default 1981 mark 6

    I scored this car last week from a car lot, that the original owner traded in on a new one. The car lot was trying to sell it for over a year, and they slowly came down to earth with the price. The georgia and Florida sun killed the car, but it's not too nice that I am afried to drive it. No sunroof which I love in the town cars, but in the town coupe, and mark 6 in seams I am always hitting my head on the roof because of the shorter 2 door roof line. Has the digital dash which is a must have for me.

    The tv rod fell of the first day I had it, so put on the brass bushing, hopefully not to mush damage was done.

    I scored a 3.55 posi out of a 1989 town car a couple weeks ago for it at the junk yard. I forget if there is something weird with these early aod's for the speedometer gear.

    All ready had a full dual exhaust off a 1988 lincoln with the hangers. I shorted the H pipe and was good to go. Nice living in the south useing factory exhaust from the 80's besides new mufflers.

    Need to do some door work but luckily I scored a 2 door mark 6 parts car a couple years ago and saved parts from it.

    Put a wagon front swaybar up front and a police bar in the rear. Mite experience with the front police sway bar later.

    Think this is the first car I will try to keep up to date on here.

    More things to come are 1990 Lincoln headers, 1989 factory jbl CD player set up,oil cooler from a 5.8 police car and tranny and power steering cooler if they fit with the hideaway headlights, maybe 1980 Lincoln tubular control arms and more things to come.Click image for larger version.

    Very nice. I've seen a couple in that colour combo...





    Recommend you give the turn signal lenses a good wiggle. If they seem loose, pull them out and reglue them better. They're an absolute bear to find in good shape.

    Gotta love the lacy spoke turbines.

    I like your style of adding factory appearing options. What’s the plan for the CD/JBL? How does the later radio fit in the earlier car (physically not electronically).

    I am well aware of the front turn signals, have a couple extra ones also. I have put later radios in a mark 6 before, never a cd set up tho. I have been bench testing the factory CD player set up but the sound is distorted while playing a cd. Swapped some tires around today and gave the a/c a shot, then had some cold air. The ATC is acting up, but will deal with it at a later date. Got the door panels off and got the windows working also, still need to change out the keyless entry buttons tho.

    Nice car though, I like two doors a lot and that color scheme is sechsy. How about some interior shots?

    Love it!... I saw one (same 2 tone)on the Tampa Craigslist about a month ago and when I went back to look at it again it was gone... At least I thought it was Tampa... could have been a surrounding areas ad too.
