    The jaguar S type had a six speed Transmission where the Tbird has a five speed transmission. I doubt they are interchangeable..

      Don't forget 2000 to 06 Lincoln LS. Probably equally rare where you are, but still a possibility.

        You are correct, the platform on the LS was the same and the Ford Motor sold over 260,000 of those Lincoln LS models. The 1999-2002s had the 252 hp engine and the 2003-2006 lincolns had the 280 hp and they all had the 5 speed automatic some had selectshift too.

        The Jaguars were similar but to justify the higher price, Ford made a 4 liter not just a little 3.9 liter in the Lincolns and Tbirds. They probably added another gear and said Jaguar has a six-speed. I don't know about that. Now some Car manufacturers are putting 10 speeds in some models, like a bicycle. Really, all that horsepower and they need 10 speeds? Fuel economy, I suppose. The Hybrids usually just use a CVT, Continuous variable transmission. Remember "Buick's Dynaflow", I do. It had to be the first CVT!
