The dash in the 94 is digital, but analog in the 91 I was only wondering if it would connect to the sensors and work as if it had in the donor car or do I need to change the sensors out aswell the engine shows to be the same and the transmission is the same it should work right?
Is it possible to put the interior from a 94 towncar into a 91 towncar? on 1991 Lincoln Town Car

It will not be a direct plug in, and will require some effort, but I think in the end you may have success. The 91 and 94 do share many components and there were not that many changes...so...if you have a donor car, you just need to step by step swap what you need.

Thanks, I'm not much of a Ford fan so I thought I might get another opinion before progressing any further! I was hoping someone might have already done it and had some pointers of what not to do to save me a headache, but thanks again for your assistance!

It's not a common deal to replace the components as you mentioned. I have never seen it done before personally. Only 1990 to 1992 I believe were conventional on the dash, and then it went digital. I am a bit concerned about the possible speed signal for the speedometer, but I'm not entirely sure. The body style was the same from 1990 - 1996, but the engine changed in 1991, and stayed the same through the run. I believe the transmission changed that year as well; I know the AOD was non electronic in 1990, but I believe the AODE was employed in 1991 as electronically controlled. You are sure to have headaches in this swap, but I'm unclear as of yet where it will be. I think your wire connectors at the cluster will be different, for sure. This could mean that you may have to rewire the whole deal. Again - possible to accomplish, but not likely to be easy.

I'm hoping on just running the wire harness through the firewall and if it doesn't plug in I know I might have to change a few sensors Yeah it already is sounding like a headache, but heck I have plenty of time to work on it! LOL Now I just need to get the motivation to finish It!

Sometimes it's just a matter of the challenge being enjoyable. It's the difference between being a "hobbyist" or repairing by necessity. Keep us posted on your progress!

Yeah I was always told that there is a differance between a parts changer and a mechanic! No offense to anyone here! I do just change parts from time to time, but anyway I will update on the progress that I make! If I make any progress at all! Lol Have a marvelous weekend everyone, Gittruckin aka James!
