One of the Mark IIIs most attractive features came standard: the classic Continental deck lid left little doubt about what's ahead of you on the road.

Sure-Track electronic braking system was a standard feature on all 1971 Mark IIIs. Almost considered a requirement on cars today, it was quite novel back then. The computer-controlled system was capable of actuating and releasing the brakes at a rate of 4 cycles per second.

The Continental Mark III was one of the best-equipped cars on the road in standard from. The padded instrument panel featured genuine walnut veneer trim. Automatic Temperature Control was to left of steering column; the Cartier electronic chronometer, a Mark III exclusive, is mounted in third pod from left. The Three-Spoke Rim-Blow Steering Wheel, also standard, allowed driver to sound horns by squeezing inside rim. Optional equipment shown includes Automatic Speed Control, with on-off switch mounted under panel to left of steering wheel; and AM/FM Stereo Radio, which featured four speakers for unbelievable stereo sound.
