No, it'* still being built. My company supplies overhead systems (among seats, etc.) for that program (called the DEW 03 by Ford). Assembled in Wixom, MI.

Why don't they have the contiennetal model on the web site? If they are calling it something else it doesn't count

Other way around.
Town Car is the Big Daddy, Continental is next biggest, then the LS. The "Mark xx" series is actually the "Continental Mark xx". Idon't know if the Continental is still in production, but there was an overlap with the LS. But there were several years when no Continental was produced.

Bonneville is the oldest continuously produced American nameplate, the Vette skipped several years, as did (I beleive) the DeVille(I know that there were years that only the Coupe DeVille was produced, and years when only the Sedan DeVille was produced. Because they were listed as seperate models rather than versions of the same model, that would mean they skipped production years and lose out on being continuously produced. They also dropped the "Coupe" and "Sedan" from the names when they eliminated the 2-door, which counts as a name change in my mind.), and the 88 also missed years, and is no longer out.
The F-series trucks have been around for a long time, but there is a break in the model names when they switched from the 100-200-300 nomenclature to the 150-250-350.
The GMC/Chevy trucks might qualify as the oldest truck names, if you go by the Sierra/Silverado name.

As for the oldest name on a car sold today, I believethe Crown Victoria takes that prize. If not then it is definitely the Continental.
