Couldn't it be a Mercury Colony Park too?

Yes, it could. Unless the Colony Park wasn't the only Mercury wagon after 1979.

Wheel design indicating Ford model...

Both Ford and Mercury used the turbine style road wheel but with different logos on the center cap. This is a Mercury though. The Country Squire had a 'white ash' border around it's 'wood' trim while the Colony Park used chrome with a matching wood insert like above. The wagon was a sub series of the Grand Marquis so it should be labeled Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park wagon.

I think it was just Colony Park. 1979+

I say it's better to leave the year out since the year range is so big.

:??: That makes no sense. Narrowing it down to anything is a lot better than having no year. For all anyone else knows, it could be a 1966 model or something. :p

That's the way I feel about a lot of European cars like BMWs, Mercs and Jaguars but some people still add the first year these cars were released, making them look much older than they might actually be.

I don't see how it's any different between European cars and American cars. :??: But anyways, if you look in the comments the year range is posted so the person looking at the car can know that it is not specifically that old. ;)

I still disagree a bit with it. I mean, I could see the sense in indicating the year if we knew it was a 1998-1991 model, for example. But as G-MANN said, it makes the car look much older than it may be. And well, you'd be surprised how many people don't read the comments or pay much attention :/

I should have phrased that better.

I could see the sense in defaulting to the first possible model year if we knew it was within the 1988-1991 model range, for example. But with the range going from 1979-1991 and there being certain differences throughout the years, I find it better to just not default to the first possible year in this case and leave as-is.

Well I completely disagree. Having it where it is now with no year is ridiculous, it could be a 1915 model or a 2008 model for all anyone can tell, it should have at least an approximate year, it's a lot closer to the actual year than nothing is...

What I meant was some European cars kept the same design for a lot of years, whereas some American cars change their exterior design more often, like every couple of years (especially in the 60s). For example the Jaguar XJ40 was made from 1986-1994 with hardly any change in the design (although some Jaguar experts would be able to explain the little details that were changed like wing mirrors and such), but when an XJ40 is added to the site, someone usually chips in and says "1986+" and it gets listed as 1986 when it could be anything up to 1994. I mean if I owned a 1993 XJ I wouldn't want people saying "Oh that's a 1986 Jaguar". And since things like BMWs and Mercs have chassis codes, listing the first model year isn't as necessary (someone only needs to look up the year range for themselves).

There's A LOT of vehicles listed on the site without a default/exact year listed for them, so I don't see how your comment can make a whole lot of sense. It would have to apply to all of the cars listed on here. Besides, I'm pretty sure that most people would know from around what time it is. Whenever I've been with other people and they see this car, they've always referred to it as an 80's car, so I think that most people certainly have a sense of that. I would agree with you if the possible year range wasn't as big, but I'll have to respectfully disagree in this case.

That's right, most people can tell this is an 80s car.

Well anyway, I still think it's just "Colony Park" with no Grand Marquis, regardless of the year.

Even that has to do with the year. If it's a 1979-1982 model, then it would simply be a Colony Park as you said. But if it's a 1983-1991 model, then it would be a Grand Marquis Colony Park.
