One of Lincoln’s past concept cars, the Sentinel luxury sedan study from the 1996 Detroit Auto Show has been put up for sale on eBay Motors. The ‘Buy it Now’ price for the concept car that supposedly fused styling traits from classic vehicles such as the 1961 Continental and the Facel Vega Excellence of the late 1950s (don’t ask) with Ford’s “New Edge” design theme is $48,500 US.
And yes, the front end styling does remind us of Renault’s Vel Satis luxury model that was introduced in 2001 and is still under production.
This is not the first time that the Sentinel showcar has been listed for auction as back in April, O.C. Welch Ford Lincoln-Mercury in Hardeeville, South Carolina tried to sell the concept study for $80,000 without any success.
Mind you, the Sentinel is a static showpiece built on a rolling chassis without an engine and a proper interior.
