If you’re a fan of big, old-school sedans, you’re surely a fan of the Lincoln Town Car — the very last of the big, old-school sedans. Unfortunately for you, however, the Town Car went out of production several years ago — and you’d think that would mean that your dreams are dashed if you’re searching for a new one. But it doesn’t.
You see, the Town Car’s demographic was, to put it diplomatically, a bit more advanced in age than most other cars — and that means most Town Car models were purchased by older people. The benefit there is little wear and tear — older people aren’t exactly driving to ragers or modifying their cars or transporting heavy loads — and also fewer miles, since most Town Car owners were probably retired.
And the result of this is that there are a lot of Town Car models currently listed for sale that are really not all that worn out. Yes, the Town Car is out of production — but “new”ish ones still exist. Right now, there are around 650 examples of the Town Car listed for sale on Autotrader — but if you search for them and cap mileage at 75,000, you’ll find nearly 140 examples you can choose from. That’s a huge figure for a car whose most recent model year was 2011, meaning “average” mileage would put even the newest examples at around 90,000 miles. Not the Town Car.
And, of course, in that group of sub-75,000-mile Town Car models, many vehicles are in really nice shape. There are some cars that are perfectly preserved, truly driven by a little old lady to church and not much else. Of course, some Town Car models were used in livery service, but not the sub-75,000 mile cars — these are all far too nice.
So, if you’re looking for a Town Car, don’t get too dismayed by the fact that they stopped making them. There are still a lot of available Town Cars in nice shape that should be easy to find. Find a Lincoln town Car for sale
