The Mark VII model has the most options for providing high comfort and the best quality of work that were available in the 80s. They include: power steering, leather seats, on-board computer, digital instrument panels (on all cars except LSC models after 1986). All VII-e equipped with air suspension with electronically controlled ride, 4-speed automatic transmission, engine with twin exhaust manifold, sequential electronic fuel injection.
Some models of 1987 and all models of 1988 received an additional increase in power due to the increased throttle body and smoother cylinder heads.
The Lincoln Mark VII is the first American car with a 4-caliper ABS system (November 1984, 6 months before the Corvette) and a composite illuminated dashboard.
In 1984, Lincoln once again reduces the weight of the Mark series cars. A new platform was used in the mid-70s in the Ford Thunderbird. Although the Mark VII style was significantly changed, the resemblance to Thunderbird is pretty obvious. Also, this model was one of the first in the United States, in which the headlights were integrated into the body, creating a more streamlined and aerodynamic silhouette, which the Ford Thunderbird did not have until 1987.
The base engine for the Lincoln Mark VII is the Windsor V8 injection unit of 5 liters.

In the history of Mark VII you can find a version of the GTC. Such cars were released units. This modification had an exclusive aerodynamic package. It was completed by a tuning studio of Jack Rush (Jack Roush Performance), where the suspension, the engine capacity of 5.8 liters and the 5-speed manual gearbox were installed.
In the period from 1984 to 1985, the BMW-Steyr 6-cylinder 2.4-liter turbo diesel engine was offered, but this power unit was rather sluggish and with poor exhaust, so it was never popular. As the demand for private luxury cars decreased, sales of the Mark VII fell after him.
By 1989, the Ford Thunderbird received a new look, and the Mark did not change its appearance until 1992, as a result of which sales dropped significantly.
During the production of the Mark VII model, 5 versions of the car were created:
1984 - 1987 Continental Mark VII
1984 - 1985 Versace Designer Edition (the model had unique seats)
1984–1992 Bill Blass Designer Edition (the initials BB were engraved on the seats)
1984–1992 LSC (Luxury Sport Coupe)
1990–1992 LSC SE (colors used: Black, Garnet Red Metallic, Electric Current Red Metallic and Titanium Metallic)
In 1993, Lincoln Mark VIII replaced Lincoln Continental Mark VII.
