1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III Automatic 460ci V8
Ginger Moondust Metallic
Starting under the hood, lucky owners would find a massive 460ci V8-4bbl engine mated to the Select-Shift automatic transmission producing 365 horsepower and 500 lb. ft. of torque through a traditional rear-wheel-drive differential!
Whether you owned a Ford Thunderbird, Chevrolet Caprice, or upscale Cadillac Eldorado, you were going to get plenty of iron wrapped around plenty of features and options. Big cars meant big engines, big trunks, huge interior cabin space, and a comfortable road feel. Not wanting to miss out in all the fun, Lincoln redesigned their Continental to have considerably more style for the 1969 model year.
Louis Car Museum, it received fresh engine oil & filter, retrofitted air conditioning to R134a, all new rubber brakes hoses, new rear brake cylinders, shoes and hardware, turned drums, and full brake flush; new shocks, new idler arm, and sway bar bushings and end links. It continues to impress out on the open road! You would be hard-pressed to find a more luxurious road car from the early 1970’s that provides such class, power, and comfort!
