Only cosmetically. The Land Rover Defender beats it there, as it has been around since WWII with major changes to the motor, but only refinements to the frame.(Yes I know it doesn't qualify because it'* a Brit)
Or how about the Original VW Beetle? It was produced from prior to WWII up until about three years ago with no changes at all. When they stopped making it in Europe, the Mexico plant took over production and didn't stop until 2002.

Didn't the Bonneville miss a couple years in the 80'*? Might have been a Canada thing.

There was no corvette for the model year 1983, but it was continuously made from 82 until 84.

The * class is sold in the US, i think that qualifies.

So far atleast 50 years has been the mark. Dunno if hte * class was contiunously produced during wwII.

WOOOhoo, so I beat a C3 at the track. A 79' Vette ran a 15.3 to my 15.1. With my 3.5" and upcoming PCM do you think I can bring down a C4 at the track?
