Blue 1971 Lincoln Mark V 8 Big Block 460 3 Speed Automatic
Gateway Classic Cars is happy to present this Lincoln Continental Mark III.
The story starts when Lee Iacocca walked into the Vice President of Ford’s design studio and said “Put a Rolls Royce grill on a Thunderbird!”.
Make no mistake, this car is all Lincoln! The Mark III debuted mid-season in 1968 for the 1969 model year. The Mark Series became strong and successful competition to the Eldorado and proved to be one of Lincoln’s biggest hits! The elegant yet sporty long hood, short deck design set the tone for the personal luxury cars through the 1970’s.
Styling cues on the Mark III are unmistakable, from the stately radiator style grill, the iconic faux spare tire crown in the decklid, hideaway head lights, and adorned with a white vinyl top over a medium blue paint.
Inside the Mark III you will find real walnut trim, a Cartier clock, working heat and air conditioning, power seats, windows, steering and brakes. All headlights, tail lights and marker lights work properly, as does the horn. This car still equipped with the spare tire and jack. The blue vinyl and cloth seats are extremely comfortable and show like new. The backseat area is just as spacious and comfortable as the front and there is plenty of room for your family or friends to pile in and take a stunning land yacht our for a cruise.
Under the hood you will find the 460 cui engine with 4 barrel carb and is capable of a 365hp. It has been updated with new tires, brakes, brake lines, exhaust system and a tune up with new spark plug wires.
Travel back in time in the amazing time capsule and feel the way Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley felt when they took the wheels of their Mark III..
