Just use the stock pan, and re-use the gasket if it's the factory style. OR get a new Ford gasket. I was tempted to get that Dorman pan with the drain plug, but it had a lot of wrinkles on the sealing surface. That, coupled with an aftermarket thin rubber gasket would be likely to leak.
And when you pump out the fluid first, the pan only has a small amount left in it, so not having a drain plug is a non-issue.
You can just raise the front end to pump the fluid out (be careful, it drains FAST!). One minute at the most should do it, don't want to run the pump dry. But the thing is, you have to get the car high off the ground to remove the pan. So, the car on 4 jack stands and level is the way to go. You need it level for the re-fill.
