Quite frankly, if a 76 2002 "ate you up" then you are probably better of staying away from the 750. Repairs are expensive and reputable mechanics hate working on them and charge accordingly (this includes the dealers). If you are a DIYer then repair costs can be managed to a more resonable amount which makes the 750 a real bargain for some.

I am considering the purchase of a 1991 750iL to replace my 1994 Lincoln MK VIII. The Lincoln has been great except for a broken valve spring (recently). The 750 has 68,000 miles, one owner, will have it inspected before purchase.

My questions are: what is a fair (base) price? What types of problems should I expect? What is the life expectancy? Quite frankly, will I be miserable paying for repairs is the real question! I had a '76 2002 years ago and it ate me up...always had a problem. Will things be different this time around. Thanks!
