63. Lincoln Town Car 1981-2011 United States

Produced by the Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company, the Town Car was a full-sized luxury sedan that takes being full-sized very seriously. In fact, it was the largest production car in North America. Being long and stylish, it is no surprise that the Town Car has dominated the livery and chauffer market. It is the car most commonly turned into a stretch limousine, as well. It is the most common livery vehicle used in the United States and Canada. The Town Car first debuted as a Continental Mark IV in 1959. The nameplate was brought back in 1969 as a permanent addition. In 1981, the Town Car superseded the Continental as the flagship vehicle for both Lincoln and the Ford Motor Company, becoming its own, stand-alone line.
