The Lincoln Versailles. At first the name seems a strange juxtaposition, the name of the humble President against the image of the French palace given to luxury and excess. Viewing the vehicle as solid yet well-appointed, the name makes sense. In fact, the Versailles was the marque’s answer to Cadillac’s Seville. Hastily introduced in 1975, the Versailles was an attempt to steal marketshare from General Motor’s leading luxury brand, Cadillac. Hailed as “luxury sized”, the Versailles was a compact sedan that was launched to survive both the national fuel crisis (which signalled the demise of some larger luxury sedans) and new competitors from the Asian markets.
In truth, this model was actually a reworked Ford Granada, a fact that was lost on no one. Why, luxury car buyers reasoned, should they opt for a nicely-appointed, upcycled mass-market car, at a luxury car sticker? The guise did not fool the public and even the car’s mechanicals were disappointing. The Versailles followed the Edsel into the record books as a sales disaster. The line was discontinued in 1980.
If your family has a Versailles it may be relegated to occasional use or be the highlight of a car collection.
