Longest active running car

What is the longest running active car that hasn't seen a redesign in awhile?

Gosh I would have to say the Ford Ranger & the ford Crown Victoria (or the whole panther platform for that matter).

Other than that the current 2012 Impala is still on a platform from like 1994 or something. Also looking at a lot of fleet vehicles like the econoline, Express, etc.

The Morgan 4/4. It started production in 1936, and is still manufacturer to this day in it's near original form, save for some engine and required safety changes. It's last noticeable redesign was in 1968.

Before the Beetle ceased production in 2003, it was the undisputed king, with few changes at all since 1938.

The Hindustan Ambassador, based on a 1956 British design and maybe still in production today.

I understand that until economic liberalisation in the 1990s, this was the most common car on Indian roads.

In the 1970s I learned to drive in one of its UK incarnations, the Austin A60 Cambridge. Indestructible.
