1995 Lincoln Sentinel Concept – Click above for image gallery

Looking like a 1961 Continental reimagined thirty years on, the Lincoln Sentinel concept caused quite a stir on the show circuit back in the mid-'90s.

Eventually, the not-quite-a-runner sedan somehow wound up in Hardeeville, South Carolina, where a dealer is now looking to unload it for $80,000. O.C. Welch Ford Lincoln-Mercury has apparently held the vehicle in its private collection, and while it's nothing more than a non-functional showpiece, there are possibilities. It would at least be a conversation piece, but one also pictures the bodywork picked up and laid atop a Panther chassis to make the best looking Town Car in ages. $80k is kind of steep for something that even lacks functioning doors (it has a half-interior beneath the smoked glass), but this was a fairly significant showcar at the time, and even now, it arguably has far more presence than anything in the Ford Motor Company's premium portfolio. Thanks for the tip, Clint!

      I think the 2002 Continental concept is a superior design to this.
      THAT is certainly the car that Lincoln should have gone for. Chrysler went ahead and essentially aped the concept with the 300C, but a long and low sedan is such an american centerpiece, I'm amazed that no one else has attempted it.

      Man this brings back memories! This was back when Ford was showing off their "New Edge" design language in the mid 1990s. If you need a reminder, just think back to the Ford Indigo, Ford GT90, Mercury MC2 and MC4, etc... I LOVED these cars about a decade and a half ago. Now, not so much, lol.

      Kinda makes that RR Hyperion from a few posts down look good!

      Shocking how nice the back looks in contrast to how awful the front looks. The side view is tolerable, but any angle that shows its nose ruins it for me.

      I don't find anything about this car attractive... not a Cohesive Design imho.

      Sometimes you wish they would build the concept, and they don't. This is not the case here.

      God that's so bad ass. Absolutely love it...

      This car is exactly where the Caddy CTS came from. GM thought this edgy design is where Lincoln was heading so they beat them to production! Still looks A-OK today.

      Seriously Ford this 95 concept looks better than every other luxury car on the road.

      Something about it reminds me of the Cadillac Sixteen.. The Sentinel really would be the ultimate Lincoln Town Car, though. I bet we'll see it in an upcoming movie...
