A car platform introduced by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1970s. Notable features include a sturdy body-on-frame design, large trunk, roomy interior, and a long hood with enough room underneath for a powerful V8 or V10 engine. In 2004, the Ford Crown Victoria
, Mercury Grand Marquis/Marauder, and Lincoln Towncar were all built on the Panther platform.
After GM killed off the Caprice in 1996, the Panthers became the last traditional American sedans.
