In the movie, you can tell that the film production took a 1990-1994 Town Car, and dressed it up with newer 1995 taillights, header panel, wheels, etc. to make it appear newer. The interior is still the older style 1990-1994 with different dashboard.

Weird, why should they do this? The normal viewer wouldnt notice any difference if it was the older pre-facelift towncar.

Are you sure they didn't just use a different vehicle for interior shots?

I did indeed see mis-matched parts in the vehicle. Hopefully these thumbnails can give more insight into the car:

Thanks for posting those pics Ford_guy as this is my favorite movie, and one of my favorite cars... I love how this was a hybrid TC. The following things were that specific to 90-94s, starting with the interior, the rear doors' having the static smaller window, the rear electric antenna, the tail lights having the checker pattern. And then we have the 95-97 traits of updated front fascia, with the newer bumpers and moldings, the painted larger side view mirrors, and the updated rear taillight bar. I would love to have a Town Car like this, I would just swap the wheels for the better looking Y-spoke ones.

Does Town Car makes good getaway car?

It's not the fastest or best handling of cars. Handling's probably atrocious being a big American luxury barge.

They could have chosen it for other factors. First of all, it's a spacious car compared to other sedans. Since the robbery crew was carrying large bags of money, assault vests and assault rifles, they were going to need all of the space they could get. Also, it would have stood out less on a busy downtown LA street. If you see guys in suits walking out of a bank towards a Town Car, it wouldn't stand out. Now just imagine if they had used a black Chevy Van for example...

Guys still were equipped with huge bags and rifle barrels were visible under jackets. I think that man should be or curiously enough to put certain amount of attention on this situation...or he wouldn't care.

It's possible to see guys like that in passing and not give them a second glance. The point is that no matter how you try to justify it, for anyone who would have seen them for more than a few seconds, they would have noticed something sticking out, literally and figuratively. But their wardrobe combined with the getaway vehicle surely made them blend in at least a bit better than normal to the point where no untrained eye would have noticed them.

I'm not saying they should use things like Porsches, but in England in the 60s criminals use to favour the Jaguar Mk.II as a getaway car because it was fast (according to what people have often said)

Nightrider RU

2011-05-17 01:12

Actually I just remind, that they weren't planned to make real getaway under heavy fire. :/

2011-05-17 01:13

Exactly, they just thought they were going to walk out and leave. It would have worked too if someone on the inside hadn't tipped the police off.

Quote Great scene though...

Best movie scene EVER! I love it. The robbery, the car, the attempted getaway, the shootout, everything. The getaway basically shows what happens when you shoot an unarmored car. It's so awesome!

Actually, the car was quite fast for a big sedan like this. The '95 Town Car was my first car and I got some good pick up on it when I needed to go faster. I'd say it would have been good getaway car if it wasn't under heavy fire, cops coming from every direction and not to mention the driver getting killed.

Could also you change this to 1994? If you see the pics carefully, this car is definitely not a 1995 model.

i'm not sure its a 1994.. movie was done in 1995 so i'm not sure how it would have been less expensive to buy a 1994 and dress it up as a 1995 ( in case they went in a budget-saving mode )

other question : can 1990-1994 doors go on a 1995 ?
was this a pre-production model given by Ford to showcase the upcoming changes on the Town Car ?

i'm not objecting the change but i'm not sure 1994 would be the best fit either... :think:

if they went economy the car could be older than 1994 .. unless they picked it up from some salvage-selling company

the best i can peacefully ( to my mind ) do is take off the year

Thank you for removing the year. Yes, the 1990-1994 doors can go on a 1995 because some of their body parts are interchangeable. This car is not a pre production model because Ford didn't make a pre production for 1995. The first 1995 town car didn't come out until the end of August 1994 because Ford kept manufacturing the last 1994 town cars until the end of August 1994. I've also seen some early 1995 town cars but they don't look like the car in this movie. So, In this movie they just bought a 91-94 and body swap with a 95 tailight and front end to make it appear newer.

majority of the parts were interchangeable for the 1990-1997 model years so you could easily dress up a 1990-1994 model with 1995 parts

on this car they only changed the mirrors, headlights, grille, rear trunklight strip (note how the backup lights, which were moved to the center part under the trunk lid lock assembly for the 1995 restyle are white/clear but have red reflectors behind it)

the steering wheel is of the 1990-1994 style as well, since it was changed for the 1995 model year. door mirrors are of the 1995 model year but the doors are of the 1990-1994 model year (im sure the 1995-1997 door mirrors are easy to install on 1990-1994 models with a bit of adjusting and painting to hide the dodgy fit.) the front bumper is of the 1990-1994 style as well (since the grille isn't completely aligned with the dip in the bumper with a slight gap on the driver's side from the poor fit)


honestly i feel that 1990-1994 (w/1995 MY Modifications) is a good designation for this car unless it can be narrowed down to 1990-1992 or 1993-1994 (also helps that Ford was a sponsor for this movie, so getting a accident car and then dressing it up as a new 1995 model when a few stunt ones aren't available to destroy yet is a major possibility)
