The Lincoln Town Car Nobody Else Has

Posted on March 4, 2013

With so many black and white, low-key luxury sedans serving the chauffeured transportation market, we thought it would be cool to highlight something different for a change. This week's Editors' Pick of the Week is a tan and beige 2005 Lincoln Town Car that has been converted to resemble a roadster on the outside while retaining a spacious, comfortable, custom-designed interior with executive amenities.

This 2005 Lincoln Town Car Signature LTD sedan was customized on the outside to resemble a regal roadster and upgraded on the inside to become a mobile throne for the high-end VIP or executive traveler.

When we first came across this vehicle on, we weren't sure it was actually a Town Car. We figured the owner listed it as a Town Car in order to show up in search results, but upon further research, we discovered it is in fact the iconic Lincoln livery vehicle. The VIN number provided shows that the vehicle was originally a 2005 Lincoln Town Car Signature LTD.

So how did this Town Car turn into the fancy, palatial beast you see in the photos?

According to, a website dedicated to the car, it was originally built by the Palazzi Motorcar Company and then customized by the Murgel Limousine Manufacturing of Marshfield, Mo.

This Lincoln Town Car for sale is listed for $55,555 and has only 39,200 miles.
