Lincoln 1970

Continental – new model
Continental Mark III

Introducing the first altogether-new Lincoln Continental in nearly a decade. America's most distinguished motorcar presents new dimensions in spaciousness, luxury and appointments. The interior room is more commodious, front and rear. The body is longer. The stance is the widest on the road today.

The Lincoln Continental Sedan. In these generous new proportions, each elegant hallmark of Continental design—the sculptured hood, the graceful greenhouse, the sweeping rear deck—has become more dramatic. And more apart from other cars. The headlamps are now concealed. New cornering lamps light the way for turns at night.

The Lincoln Continental Coupé. This 1970 version, like the sedan, is the quietest and most velvet riding of all Lincoln Continentals. Its engine is a massive 460 cubic inch deep-breathing V-8. Wider doors afford easier entrance and exit. For quicker access to the roomier rear compartment, an optional electric solenoid releases the seat backs when either door is opened.

This new instrument cluster places the most-often-read dials—fuel and temperature —closest to the driver's line of vision. There are warning lights for headlamp doors closed, low fuel and dual brake system malfunction and a seat belt reminder light. The glove compartment has been doubled in size to accommodate many more of your travel accessories.
 

The all-new tail assembly reflects this motorcar's total sculptured elegance. The rear deck louvers are the outlet for Continental's new Flow-Thru Ventilation system. Very quietly and evenly, this system passes up to 480 cubic feet of fresh outside air through the passenger compartment every minute, even with all the side windows closed. You have full control of the air flow by means of switches within easy reach.

The Continental Mark III. The most authoritatively styled, decisively individual motorcar of this generation. Everything about Mark III is distinctive. The graceful, low profile. The long hood. The short rear deck. And the many, many items that have been offered for the first time in an American motorcar. Notably, the new Sure-track Brake System, Michelin steel belted radial ply tires, and the Cartier chronometer.

Mark III's aft section is distinguished by its famous tire-cover rear-deck design, vertical taillamps, and a massive, uncluttered bumper. Mark III offers a choice of 27 exterior colors, including four optional high-metallic-content acrylic paints that give the Mark III a starry glow. Vinyl roofs are now available in black, white, dark blue, dark green or dark brown.
