Custom 1999 Lincoln Navigator For Sale

This 1999 Lincoln Navigator features
custom modifications to the exterior, interior, suspension, engine, and audio
system. Originally built in the early 2000's, it was featured in Truckin' Magazine's
September 2005 issue. Although this is an older build, it has held up very well,
is mechanically sound, and would be great for using as a daily driver, shop
demo, or a weekend show-n-shine cruiser!

The exterior of this Navigator features
custom flames and pinstriping over the original silver base. Billet inserts
have been installed in the upper grille and bumper opening, the wiper cowl has
been smoothed and painted, and the wipers have been replaced with billet caps.
The whole thing rolls on chrome 22" wheels with low profile tires in excellent
condition. This custom SUV has also had its roof rack and rear wiper shaved,
and sports a billet aluminum antenna in place of the stock unit. The side and
rear windows are tinted, too. There are some minor scuffs on the running boards
and other wear areas, but certainly nothing that stands out or draws attention
away from the clean custom look.

Under the hood, the stock 5.4 liter
Triton V8 has been upgraded with an Air Force One stainless intake system...
and that's it! At just over 132,000 miles, this truck starts right up, idles
perfectly, has no check engine lights, and should provide you with years of
trouble-free service.

This Lincoln was originally equipped
with air-leveling rear suspension. Well, that was ditched a long time ago, in
favor of a fully adjustable custom air ride system. Featuring two 5 gallon air
tanks with Viair compressors, this 1/2" system is adjustable at all four
corners independently with the handheld controller. There is a Dakota Digital
pressure gauge installed in the center console to monitor pressure at each corner
and the air tanks. The entire system is plumbed with DOT air line and fittings
for ultimate reliability.

I saved the best for last- the interior!
The leather and the carpet are original and in good condition- no tears, burns,
or other major damage. That's about the only thing left untouched, however-
this ride features smoothed and painted panels throughout (door panels, dash
accents, center console, overhead console, and more), billet pedals and other
accents, and EIGHT video screens and a custom sound system installation that
will entertain you and your six closest friends while you're out cruising!

The Clarion DVD head unit sends video
signal to four 7" headrest monitors, two 7" monitors in custom pods
in the C-pillars, and another 7" screen in a custom fiberglass enclosure
on the top of the dash! There's also a Playstation 2 in another custom fiberglass
housing in the dash. The video signal is boosted by a Soundstream video amplifier,
while audio signal from the deck is boosted by a pair of chrome Audiobahn amps
mounted in the rear hatch. All four doors have upgraded speakers, and there
is a custom subwoofer enclosure behind the third row of seats with two 10"
Audiobahn subwoofers mounted behind a 1.25" plexiglas panel. While this
isn't a "blow your eardrums out of your eye sockets" system, it sounds
great and plays plenty loud. The head unit is showing its age, as some of the
buttons don't function (remote still works fine) and it no longer retracts into
the dash- you may want to consider an update before too much longer. Also, you'll
notice in some pictures the headrest monitors have some material pulling away
from the bezels. We have re-glued them, and so should be in great shape for
you. Finally, the driver side C-pillar pod will need some attention- the vinyl
has pulled away from the inner structure and is sagging and lumpy in places.
Most people don't notice it immediately, but we want to make sure you know as
much as possible about the entire vehicle before buying!

Overall, this Navigator is in excellent
condition considering the age of the custom work performed, and should hold
up for many more years of enjoyment.

We are located in Rancho Cordova,
California. If you would like to come look at the vehicle in person, please
contact us through here or give us a call. We have the Navigator for sale locally,
and so reserve the right to end the auction early if it sells elsewhere. If
sold within California, it will include a smog certificate per state law. We
are happy to help with shipping out of state, or out of the country, so don't
let distance keep you away from owning this custom ride for a fraction of what
it cost to build!

55 Pontiac - Done For Now

This 4 door Pontiac showed up in our shop a couple weeks ago for a major height adjustment. While it was on the rack, though, the customer started thinking about some other upgrades- disc brakes, power steering... He's not really sure what else he's having us add while it's here, but we went ahead and got it 'bagged and 4-linked while we await his decision.

I'll get some shots of the front suspension and rear link and post them up next week for you guys- until then please visit us at for the best parts for YOUR custom ride!
