heck, if he were to damage the auto, supposedly an 80s BMW getrag 5-speed will bolt right up!

There is also a good lincoln MKVII forum with a lot of info on it. From what I learned on there, apparently this was the ultra rare option on this ultra rare option!

Lincoln coupe with 5 speed bolt to a 6cyl diesel!

Also, they apparently dropped some of these BMW diesels in some of the 4 door lincolns as well, far less though.

this must have been when ford was flirting with what company to source light duty diesels from, cause I also owned a 1986 ford escort that then had a mazda diesel in it. That car may have been the greatest slug of all my car buying adventures. They ended up jumping into bed with mazda, probably BMW was way too pricey and *****y with comparable reliability and increased complication.

If it runs, buy it!
