NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Hy’s Limousine Worldwide Transportation recently bought 40 new Lincoln L Series Town Cars from its longstanding vehicle vendor, Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge, Conn.

Like many operators nationwide, Hy’s is updating its fleet of Town Cars as Ford Motor Co. ends production of the vehicle on Aug. 31. Ford will replace the model with the 2013 Lincoln MKT Town Car, to be made available some time in 2012. The MKT Town Car will be an advanced vehicle with a cross-over body style, a transverse engine, all-wheel drive, and unibody construction among many technical and mechanical advances.

“We felt that we needed to cover ourselves until we decide which model sedans we are going to purchase going forward,” said Bob Levine, CEO of Hy’s, in a press release.

Ford Motor Co. ratcheted up production of the final Town Car model in response to industry demand. Industry Lincoln dealerships have been steadily reporting massive demand and multiple bulk orders for the livery Town Car.
