So i posted a Grumman Step Van for sale or interesting trades…. we’ve almost finalized the deal. But he claims it’s a ‘69 but i’ve been doing a lot of reading on the cars and by the looks of it, i think it may actually be a ‘79?

it’s a 2 door, with regular lights but it also has the rear oval window in the back seat…. i can’t for the life of me find another ‘69 with that rear window….

was it originally in the ‘69? am i crazy or is this guy off his rocker??? lol

That’s a Continental Mark III, made 1969-1971. The ‘69 model has exposed wiper arms visible at all times, while the 70 and 71 models had wiper arms that disappeared under the hood cowl when parked. That would be one way to tell.

Post a picture of the front showing the wipers.
