Autotrader Find: Shockingly Nice 2002 Lincoln Blackwood

If you’re looking for a Lincoln Blackwood — and you aren’t, because no one is — here’s a perfect one. This 2002 Lincoln Blackwood is unmodified, and it’s traveled just under 30,000 miles from new, making it one of the best-preserved Blackwood models on Autotrader.

For those of you who don’t know the Blackwood, it was Lincoln’s first failed attempt at a pickup truck, which came in the early 2000s. A second failed attempt, the Mark LT, was slightly more successful, but the Blackwood was more interesting: It was 2-wheel drive, it had fake wood surrounding the bed — which was effectively a massive trunk — and it only seated four. This truck lasted precisely two model years before Lincoln pulled the plug.

This one was babied. It’s finished in black with a black leather interior, as all Blackwood models were, and it’s covered just 28,500 miles. The Carfax report notes that it spent its entire life in California, another plus, staying with its first owner for 16 years — from February 2002 to February 2018. The second owner had it a short stint before the current dealer picked it up, and now it’s offered by Hayes Auto Sales in Roseville, California, near Sacramento, for just under $20,000.

That may seem like a lot of money for a 16-year-old pickup that, by all accounts, was a failure — but in looking at other examples, it seems to be a decent bargain. Most Blackwood models are listed for $10,000 or slightly over, with only high-mileage examples going for less money — so if you want a well-preserved Blackwood like this one, you’ll have to pay.
