Best way to sell a 1996 Lincoln Town Car, Signature Trim Level, w/36K miles.

Asked by Jul 10, 2010 at 09:16 AM about the 1996 Lincoln Town Car

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

The car belonged to my Mom, who died in July 2008.  The car has been garage kept and is in excellent condition.  As the estate executor, I need to find the best way to sell it.  Is there a market for this type of car with really low mileage?  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

If it is in the excellent condition, I think there is. Why not give it a try?

We have a 1996 Lincoln Town with 84,000 miles and are going to sell it as well. Local newspaper is not an option since not many being delivered to residents any more since the internet. We are going to advertise in " Craigs " on the internet since it is free and has local listings. I believe there is a market for Town Cars, selling point is that they do get better gas mileage than SUVS. A c0-worker has a SUV and complains about gas mileage, our Lincoln Town car gets 26-27 mpg on the highway and about 23 mpg when I drive it to work. The mileage on your mom's car is really low, you should hold out for a premium selling price. Low mileage, garage kept, and in excellent condition are very strong selling points. What color is it?

Sell it on eBay for the highest price, which will be established by the public at large. My advice is to clean it up very well, take exceptional high definition images of the inside and out (keep mostly the car in the image frame), write a very honest description and sell on eBay. You get a global audience and a vehicle is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. So as to procure the most worth, you sell on the biggest auto marketplace, Fee's should only cost about $100 if you sell it. Recommend making sure the auction ends on a Monday or Tuesday ONLY, about 8 pm E.S.T.
