...yeah.. TOTAL garbage! in just a few years Lincoln gave up and bought GM Hydramatics. My '54...
Capris had GM trannys. Lincoln FINALLY got their act together by 1955 and by late '55 All Lincolns had FoMoCo transmissions.A rare piece of history few know about. Crazier still, in the late 1940's GM wanted to buy (and install) Packard "Ultramatic" automatic transmissions. Enjoying lucrative post-war success, Packard flat out refused. Of course, they would soon regret that hasty decision.
