The 1970 coupe is the rarest of all 1970s Lincolns.
Only about 3000 have been constructed, and it shows out in the field:
very good specimens are challenging to locate.
In august 2014, following 6 months of searching, I discovered this auto and purchased it: a seldom utilized California car with only 46,000 miles.
I had it shipped eastward 2,600 miles on a transporter truck, then drove it house, all five,000 pounds of it.

I started looking for coupes soon after it became apparent to me that they had a lot sleeker proportions than the sedans (See comparison:

In spite of being largely unadorned, 1970-71 Lincolns were also among the most powerful. The early unsmogged and higher compression versions of the Ford 385 series 460ci engine have lots of rubber-burning power, even with few modifications.
Then as early as 1971, new emission systems began appearing,
and by 1975 power drains were everywhere on the drivetrain.
This appears to be matched by the styling revisions, which in my opinion created the automobiles look progressively much more civilized over the 1970s.

Soon after acquiring my personal specimen house, I repaired the a number of perforations on the roof (the automobile had been SITTING a lot), changed the exterior color by repainting the complete auto, lowered the suspension by 2 inches, changed and fixed the ignition, got some deluxe wheel covers &amp 4 new tires, did some significant rustproofing, and swapped several greater parts with the black sedan, namely: the front bumper, front grille, each fenders, headlights + doors + mechanism, external mirror, hood + hinges, header panel, 10-tone electric horn, Edelbrock carburetor, starter cable, oil cap, 4 steel wheels, 4 Eaton short coil springs, and the complete custom-constructed dual two.5&quot exhaust (with some assist).

Today, every little thing performs!
six-way electric seat, vacuum-actuated door locks, all four electric windows, electric trunk release, HVAC, all inner and outer lights, vacuum headlight mechanism, wipers&amppump, electric antenna, EVEN THE CLOCK Performs!!

Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Space exhibit, samples of space suit gear utilized by James Irwin on Apollo 15
auto exterior mold design
Image by Chris Devers
Quoting the caption:

Astronaut Equipment

These objects are examples of private gear and tools issued to astronauts of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo applications. Some of the objects have been utilized in coaching for missions, other people during the actual missions. They contain things of protective clothing (gloves, helmets, and boots), a spacesuit worn on the Moon, and examples of the sorts of tools astronauts used on the lunar surface. The actual tools used on the Moon were left behind.

In spite of what the caption says, all of the objects right here look to be lunar equipment employed by James Irwin on Apollo 15 in July, 1971.
