Vehicle Description


Lincoln Town Car
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lincoln Town Car is a model line of full-size luxury sedans that was marketed by the Lincoln division of the American automaker Ford Motor Company from 1981 to 2011. Taking its nameplate from a limousine body style, the Town Car first appeared in 1959 as a sub-model of the Continental Mark IV, returning as a Lincoln Continental trim line from 1969 to 1980. Following a revision of the Lincoln model line, the Lincoln Town Car became a distinct product line for 1981, replacing the Continental.

Lincoln Town Cars were produced across three generations, each using the Ford Panther platform. Sharing a chassis and mechanical components with the Mercury Grand Marquis and Ford (LTD) Crown Victoria, all were rear-wheel drive. Offered nearly exclusively as a four-door sedan, a two-door sedan was offered only for 1981. In addition to the four-door sedan sold for retail sale, many examples of the Lincoln Town Car were sold for fleet and livery use, with the vehicle also serving as a popular platform for limousine conversions throughout its production. From 1983 to its 2011 discontinuation, the Town Car was the longest car produced by Ford Motor Company, becoming the longest mass-production car produced in North America from 1997 to 2011.

While marketed primarily in the United States and Canada, the Town Car saw exports worldwide. From 1980 to 2007 it was assembled at the Wixom Assembly, in Michigan, alongside the Lincoln Continental, Lincoln LS, Mark VI, Mark VII, and Mark VIII. Following the closure of Wixom Assembly, production was moved to St. Thomas Assembly in Southwold, Ontario, Canada, alongside the Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis. In 2011, production of all three Panther-platform vehicles ended as the St. Thomas facility was closed in September 2011.

Following the withdrawal of the Lincoln Town Car, as of the 2019 model year, the model line has not been directly replaced. Since the 2012 model year, the Town Car model name has reverted to sub-model status, denoting livery/limousine/hearse variants of the Lincoln MKT. While closely matching the Town Car in both wheelbase and width, the revived Lincoln Continental is marketed as a successor to the Lincoln MKS.

Etymology
In the 1920s, a town car was a body design typically used for limousines. The description originated from the horse-drawn carriage that featured an open chauffeur's compartment with a fixed roof for the passengers. During that era, the fixed rear roof horse-drawn carriage became a limousine and the tern "de Ville" in French meant for "for town (use)".[2] Later, the "sedan de Ville" was used as a model name by Cadillac, the primary rival to the Lincoln Continental from the 1950s to the 1990s. In 1922, Edsel Ford purchased a custom-built Lincoln L-Series town car as a personal vehicle for his father, Henry Ford.

Continental Town Car
1959-1960

1959 Continental Mark IV Town Car formal sedan (1 of 214 produced)
For 1959, Cadillac and Lincoln introduced the de Ville and Town Car sedan nameplates, with Lincoln and its rival taking divergent design paths. While the Sedan de Ville adopted rooflines with fastback or wraparound rear windows, marketed as the mid-range Cadillac, the Town Car was introduced as a formal sedan, becoming the flagship model of the Continental Division from 1959 to 1960.

In place of the reverse-slant roofline of the standard Mark IV, the Town Car adopted a formal profile to its roofline with a padded vinyl top. In addition to the (slightly) restrained styling, the change in the roofline was functional, as it allowed for the rear seat to be moved several inches rearward (to add legroom) without any change to the wheelbase.

Two variants were offered across both years: the $9,200 Town Car (214 sold) and the $10,200 Limousine (83 sold); the latter was produced with a partition between the driver and rear-seat passengers, becoming among the rarest vehicles ever produced by Ford Motor Company. All 297 examples were painted in black.

1970-1979
For 1970, the Town Car name returned as a trim package option, including leather seating surfaces and deeper cut-pile carpeting. For 1971, a limited-edition (1500 produced) Golden Anniversary Continental Town Car commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of Lincoln.[6] For 1972, the Town Car was introduced as a sub-model of the Lincoln Continental model line. On nearly all examples, a vinyl top covered the rear half of the roof, with a full-length configuration optional. A raised molding over the roof incorporated coach lamps on the B-pillars. For 1973, Lincoln introduced a two-door variant of the Continental Town Car, named the Town Coupe. As with the Town Car, the Town Coupe was offered with a standard vinyl roof.

As part of the 1975 redesign of the Lincoln roofline, the Town Car adopted the oval opera windows of the Mark IV coupe, with the Town Coupe given a large rectangular opera window.

The Continental Town Car proved to be a success for the division, becoming the most popular Lincoln vehicle of the 1970s (as the Mark IV and Mark V were not technically branded as Lincolns).
