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.
