Introduced during last spring as a 1969 model, the Continental Mark III obviously remain similar to these early cars. Nevertheless, an important addition is made to the option list during the year: the new Sure-Track anti-lock brake system (mounted on the rear wheels only), that has been developed by Ford in cooperation with Kelsey-Hayes.
