    It looks like they switched in '87 for the Ford/Merc lines. Lincoln must have had the nicer stuff a few years ahead of everyone else.

    As it was and should be. Back then you got prestige from buying the premium car. Especially back in the 50's. By the 80's, that was pretty much all gone. I think Cadillac shut down their Cadillac exclusive factory and switched production to Arlington in the early 80's.. Ford later killed Wixom too. But even though you still got a car based on a platform shared by Ford and Mercury, your car was still built in a different plant. Now that's totally dead, no real perks to speak of short of accessories and an inflated price tag to accompany it. Oh, different badging too.
