1981 Lincoln Town Car 5.0L from North America

Summary:

I love it. Started as an old school car and soon to be a restoration project

Faults:

Smog Control Unit.

Stock Muffler rotted out.

Passenger door handle broke.

Normal wear and tear.

General Comments:

I love it. Even though shes 23 years old, she is a good old car. Still drives like new on factory stock suspension components. Very good for early fuel injection of mass production. Bought as a cheap school car and now in the process of restoration. I know a 1981 but hey she earned it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Did the Lincoln Town Car's ever come with the manual transmission back in the 1980s? I've always thought the automatic transmissions were standard on those cars.

What I want to know is how the original poster here got an '81 to run well? Those variable-venture carburetors were junk when brand new!
