The Continental Mark III made its market debut in April 1968 as an early 1969 model. Created at the request of Ford’s Vice President, Lee Iacocca, the Mark III was designed to compete against the newly restyled Cadillac Eldorado. The first Mark series since Mark II production ended in 1957, the Mark III chassis was derived from the Thunderbird and featured new styling that mirrored the Mark II while still paving the shape for future designs and featured a prominent grill similar to that of a Rolls-Royce. Under the long hood was the 460ci V8 that was equipped with a 4-barrel carburetor and was good for 365 horsepower. Lavish luxury and power features were plentiful although automatic climate control air conditioning was available at an additional cost. The Mark III was an instant success with the discerning American public despite its nearly $7,000 dollar price tag. The model was credited as a huge push to the Lincoln division as 1969 was the first year that the Continental outsold the Cadillac Eldorado. Mark III production would end by 1971, though its short production run, iconic style and legendary performance make examples highly sought-after to this day especially if they are in a well-kept, original condition.
