With the price of gas not going back down too much I think its overdrive time for two of my windsor powered cars,I do know the later 80s trans are the better trans but would it be better to get one from a truck or van instead of a crown vic.   After I get the right cam in the 351 I have in my 55 convertible its going to get a AOD and my 65 galaxie could use one too.

I think the truck trans might be longer, the info is at one of these two sites.

I believe truck and crown vic are the same length but they are both 1" longer than the mustang version

I forget now but I seem to remember 89-93 is the desirable span

If someone measures a crown Vic AOD, I can measure my truck AOD..

The AOD I'm using was out of a 92 Crown Vic and it is a short tailshaft. The 98 truck 4R70W that I used for parts was also a short tailshaft.

You just have to measure the tail housing. The short one is 10.25".

The towncar AOD's are longer............lot of guys use the mustang trannies in their vic/GM boxes because of the better govenor (higher shift  point)..........

I need the longest AOD made as my 55 convertible has a big X member in the frame and its hard to grease the front U joint with the driveshaft in the car,it has aC-4 now and I have to pull it to grease it.

Yep. Mark VIIs have the long tailshaft as well. Must be a Lincoln thing.
