A Taurus more reliable than a Town Car? I guess there's a first time for everything.

I've had a couple of 80s Grand Marquis and Town Cars, and they were extremely reliable. One 80s Taurus - utter disaster. Terrible transmission, far more problems than the Panther platform cars. That said, I'd rather have a General Motors car any day.

The problem with the original reviewers car is the 4.1. We had one of these once with the 307 - plenty of torque, very reliable and durable. The question is, if you buy one with the 4.1, can you easily swap in a 307?
