I don't know production numbers, but you can rest assured that they only made hundreds, not thousands of them. I think that looks like an 84, or 85, am I correct? If so, most of them had a 5 liter v/8 and run well, but are not like the 5.7 liters of later years. I think you will be happy with it.

IMHO, no coach builder built better looking coaches than Eureka in the '80s!

I have to respectfully disagree. My 86 S&S Lincoln has classic formal squared off lines. I think S&S nailed it when they designed these coaches. Too bad the 80s Lincolns were produced in such low numbers

It's funny but I have a different favorite coach builder for every decade I think.

I totally agree with Noah. '57-'64, I am all about M-M. Didn't care for S&S at all in those years at all. '71-'76, S&S would be my fav with Superior right behind them.
