'70 Lincoln Mk III - Heated Seats??

Hi guys - I'm hoping someone out there has some experience working on 70s Lincolns...

I'm helping a friend clean up a '70 Lincoln Mk III 2-door. It's quite a sled, you could probably melt this beast down and make a fleet of 8 or so Kia hatchbacks with the steel you got out of it.

We have pulled the front power seats out, and along with the harness that connects to the motors that power the seats there are a pair of very heavy wires that run into the seat, a pair on each side. I can only assume that these seats were electrically heated - perhaps driven by the automatic climate control system that actuates the heating & air conditioning?

For it's age this car has an amazing amount of wiring to it, not your typical 70s car wiring harness!

I'm also enjoying the fact that everything is so serviceable on this car. We fought to get the driver's window motor out, and after half an hour on the bench it was completely disassembled, cleaned and greased up - ran like a top after the fact. End play adjustments and all that stuff... But I digress.

My searches on the internet in general and through this site have got me nowhere. Could it be that heated seats were a feature back in '70?

Thanks in advance.
