5000 lb Hershey Bar: 1971 Lincoln Mk III Coupe

This next car comes from the era when American auto designers were more concerned that their cars looked good driving down the road than anything else. Safety, fuel economy, and digital connectivity didn’t even make the list of design requirements, but you can bet that Lincoln had a 78 page design guide on the application of brown paint. At least the new Lincoln Navigator has a massive Kenworth sized chrome grill and wheels that would look large on a tractor…but it still doesn’t have have the class of a Mk III. Find this 1971 Lincoln Mk III offered for $8900 in Franklin Lakes, NJ via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
