    I'm confused, which seats are you talking about, Dave?
    Vic

    ~ 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis LS "The Scab" - plenty of rot, summer DD
    ~ 1997 GMC Yukon - wannabe winter DD - I'll fix it eventually
    ~ 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis GS "The Ice Car" - My rotting winter DD
    ~ 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis GS - Rotting Retired DD
    Gone but not forgotten:
    ~ 1988 Country Squire ~ 1987 Ford Crown Vic

    Those look like the seats in my '89 GS and my '91 GS only both my cars have blue seats. They are quite nice especially since mine are still fairly firm. I don't like my seats in my '91 LS compared to the seats in my GSs.

    Seats in my LS:



    Apparently I don't have pictures of the seats in either of my GSs, and they both reside about an hour drive north of me. Heres a pic of a shift tube on my seat:

    And a picture during my passenger seat power conversion:

    Ah... yeah... the LS/LX seats had the smaller pleats.

    The sad story of Truck 11345:
    https://www.copart.com/lot/47505838

    Backstory is that is one of my store's old delivery trucks. It was one of two original trucks to the store when it opened in 2009. Unfortunately about a few months ago the transmission started slipping. Our servicing shop found the ATF to be black, so it was changed with fresh fluid and some stop slip additive, and was fine for a few days. However, it started neutraling out when it got hot, and that makes for a pretty bad delivery vehicle. Some time ago, we added a third truck for extra business, so we got back down to two, which was troublesome. We expected to get 45's transmission rebuilt, but upper management decided against it so we got a truck sent from another store instead. That truck came with a camper shell on it, and we did not want to keep it on since it made for poor rearward visibility, so we stuck it on 45.

    45 did have all of it's badging and center caps, but I took them off for a friend with a Ranger. No harm for a vehicle that the company was writing off anyway.

    Last picture I have of it:

    Needs an AOD.

    Those 5R44E’s and other autos the modern era Rangers got seem really busy shifting and slip a bit much for my taste. My parents have a 97 with the 5r55e and it acts like a CVT programmed to 3000rpm until it hits 5th lockup.
