I've suddenly been hit with a passion for the 68 to 71 Lincoln Mark III's. What chassis are they based on or is it unique? Its actually a rather smallish car with that good ole 460 stuffed in it!!! I think this may be my next street car. Hot Rod Lincoln!!

In those years the Mark III shared the same chassis as the Thunderbird. I think they are really cool cars, too.

They were unique to those two cars.
T-Bird and Mark only.

That is what I thunk! There have been a couple for sale by me recently, and I started watching the internet on them. They really don't grab a whole lot of money. I like the low slung and gun slit window look + the big block. Once the Cat is up and flyin, this may be the way I go for a cruiser. But I will have to add a CD player so I can blast "Hot Rod Lincoln" everywhere I go!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't think of a cooler cruising unit.

I always thought that the 71 T-Bird was the slickest of the 70's Birds.
