PICS: A Lincoln Continental Mark III coupe with no vinyl top and a unique color....
posted here a few days past, really stands out. This was my favorite Mark, after the '56. But it's always had too much front and rear overhang, making it appear out of proportion and with a shorter wheelbase than needed.

As found:



Lowered slightly, with less overhang and some dechroming:

Your thoughts?

Enjoy!
