We’re going to take a break from the Turbo Era Junkyard Finds and take a look at the kind of car that our resident lover of Ford personal luxury coupes really appreciates: a down-but-not-out (yet) 1970 Mark III in Denver self-service wrecking yard.
It’s bit rusty and the paint probably started looking bad while Gerald Ford was still president, but this car still has presence.
Thanks to optimistic gross power ratings and a who-gives-a-damn-about-oxides-of-nitrogen high compression ratio, the 460-cubic-inch V8 in this car was rated at 365 horsepower. Fuel economy? Gas will always be cheap!
This grille would look good hanging on my garage wall.
The transmission hump made it a bit less roomy than its front-wheel-drive Eldorado competitor, but who puts a passenger in the middle of this kind of bench seat?


“The automobile of celebrities, stars, and world leaders.”
