Ford produces last Mercury, a Grand Marquis

FoMoCo today produced the last Mercury – a Grand Marquis, which rolled off the production line at 8 a.m. in the morning today at the company’s assembly plant in St. Thomas, Ontario. The sedan will be shipped out as part of a fleet order, according to Ford spokeswoman Marcey Evans said.

Production of the last Mercury was delayed due to snowstorms that pushed back parts shipments to the plant.

The plant will continue to produce the Ford Crown Victoria for taxi and police fleets until it closes in September 2011.

The Mercury Grand Marquis had been produced for 25 years at the plant. FoMoCo sold more than 21 million Mercury cars and light trucks in the United States since the brand made its debut with the 1938 model year.
