I think itís a Fox body a least. I think it has a 5.0 HO in it but how can I tell. Anybody know what the Y axle code is for this cars rear? It also has disk breaks on the rear so if someone in the area needs directions I can tell you were it is.

I think you lost everybody on this thread. You mention an '88 Mark in the title, but what exactly are you talking about? Were you wanting to post this in the classifieds? Have you been drinking? I am!

A 1988 Lincoln Mark 7 or 8! I don't think itís a full size and itís not a T-bird or a Cougar but I think itís a Fox body and thatís why I tried posting the questions here.

I figured that I could let someone near me know of the rear I found and where it was if they were looking for one like it.

"Y" is a 3.08 conventional.
Also I am not drinking, nor do I have any need to.

copied from cobravenom71 on another thread:
"Reply w/Quote This is one of the best-kept-secrets in Ford-world: The Lincoln Mark VII LSC.

Basically, a slightly larger 'Fox'-bodied Mustang GT, they are a smokin' bargain!

The car was made from 1984 until 1992, but the 88 and up versions are the ones to get.
The 88 and ups all came with the 5.0L HO from the Mustang GT, a nice-and-torquey 225 horse 302. It is exactly the same as the GT engine, down to the stainless exhaust headers.
The Mark VIIs came in 'Bill Blass' versions as well, but stick to the 'LSC' editions. (Luxury Sport Coupe).
The LSCs came with:
4 wheel disc brakes, with 4-channel anti-lock
3.23 limited slip 8.8 rears
AOD transmissions
fat front and rear sway bars, gas shocks.
An awesome 4-wheel air-spring suspension system.
Excellent 11-way adjustable sport seats (made by Lear-Siegler, of 'Lear Jet' fame)
every conveniance doo-dad conceievable as standard equipment, including a pretty cool 'trip computer'.
leather trim as standard
Full guages
Fog lights
16x8 aluminum wheels with 225/60 tires
and a whole lot of Lincoln-spec trim and sound deadining materials.

These cars are not quite as fast as a Mustang GT, but they are surprisingly quick, and the handling is phenomonal for a car of its size and heft.
Every one who drives these cars is very surprised at how fun they are to drive, and how suprising it is that a 'Lincoln' was ever made that was like this.
I have two of them, a 1988 and a 1990.

The real beaty of these cars is that they have the typical crappy resale value of a normal 'Lincon', which is pretty close to zero!
You can pick up an excellent condition one with 100K or less on it for about $1,000...often less!
I paid $600 for my 110,000 mile 88, and $500 for my 80,000 mile 1990. They are both in fantastic shape with original paint, no body damage and no rust!
I have had to spend less than $300 on each one to make it 'perfect', as far as a daily driver is concerned.
To make the deal even sweeter, since these cars retailed for over $30,000 new,(can you believe it?!)only typical 'adult' Lincoln-type drivers usually bought them. That means they were sually taken care off and not driven hard like most used Mustang GTs were.
Considering how cheaply you can buy a nice used one, these cars are the best bargain going out there...especially for 'Ford' folk like us! "

here is the best part. if you take the axles the rear and front brakes and put them on your fox stang you will have the same combo as the svo/saleen. this gives you 11in brakes allaround with 73 mm calipers in front and larger calipers than the standard rear disc setups in the back. i am currently doing this to my 85 gt.i have done the rear and am now doing the fronts.

Where is this car, and how much for the engine, my buddy blew his gt up, and we need to swap in the right motor. Aparently, the regular 302's have a different firing order than the 5.0 HO, I hate EFI, carb'all the way for me
Thanks

Itís in Jamesburg, NJ at a wrecking yard called Red & Black. I was thinking of picking up the engine but I got a low mileage 351W roller engine out of a 95 pick-up instead. The 5.0 looked to be complete (EFI, Distributor, Bracket, EtcÖ) but I donít know how many miles were on it. The AOD trans was there as well as the rear I was talking about. I think the front brakes were missing on the car though. I would think that you could get a good deal as I only paid $150 for the 351 and that included the intake, pulleys, brackets, flywheel and a bunch of other things like the injectors and rails. My Dad just went there and picked up a complete low mileage 454 and a 400 trans for one of his projects and paid $800.

Just stop in the office and say that you want to look at the Ford stuff they have. Go and look at the car and check it out. Look for a guy in the yard named Warren. He might be at the entrance to the yard or running some equipment. You canít miss him if you see him as he looks like he came right from Sanford and Son.

PS: Just watch the cops if you go through Spotswood and Helmetta as they love to give tickets.
