1990 Lincoln Town Car Base 302 from North America
For the price I can't complain
The main thing is the 5.0 runs great when it starts, but it takes a few turns of the key back and forth to prime it when it's cold.
As far as beaters go, this has been a good value. No sagging air ride yet or O/D transmission issues. This is the only year with the 302 and this body style.
I have a newer Mazda, but prefer to drive this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What transmissions can replace the stock? I need major help.

Pretty much nothing, especially if you have the older hydro unit.

I bought a 1990 TC last August. The interior and exterior are in good shape for a 27 year old car. The air ride has been replaced with coils so no problem there. It rides great; it is slow and lumbering, but it wasn't built for speed.
I have had to replace the power steering pump (special order from Ford); no one had it. Had to have Ford build one.
I replaced the digital dash; it blinked twice one day and that was it. I got one from the junkyard.
Other than that it's maintenance.
Great big comfy tank. I love it. I just don't get in a hurry when I drive it.
