The Ford Crown Victoria, a long-running nameplate that was possibly the last remaining body-on-frame production sedan in a unibody world, has finally been put out of its misery.
The last Ford Crown Victoria ever was recently assembled at the factory in Canada, a white sedan with a tan interior, apparently destined for a customer in Saudi Arabia, where it was always a best-seller for private buyers even while it was not offered to the general public in the U.S. for years now.
The Ford Crown Victoria’s “Panther” platform dates back to 1979, and the car has carried on into modern times with a 4.6L V8, rear-wheel-drive and a optional seating for six even. In its last few years, aside from Saudi Arabia, it only became available to mostly fleet buyers in North America, namely police departments and taxi companies, who preferred the Crown Vic’s durability, spaciousness and ease-of-repair.
