where are you getting it from?
find out how many miles it had, what car it came from, make sure to ask for year make model just to be sure, what kind of warranty it has, if it doesn't don't bother buying it, try to aim for a t-bird or cougar aod since it is slightly, very slightly different from the mustang (shifter linkage) and if your not too familiar with trannies don't get a mustang aod

he said he is sure it is an aod, but it was out of a mercury not sure what kind
he said it was a 289 so...?

idk, i would like some pics of what an aod looks like before i go look at it, its only 100$ so its worth a look at least

289!?

there is no car with an 289 that had an aod, the aod debuted in '86, if i am correct, and the 289 only made it till around 69-70, if the car had a 289 then what it is a C4 and not a aod

if your planning to go pro street, C4s are the way to go if not don't get it

i think he means a 4.6, people up here call 4.6s 289s for some reason, but arent those aodes?
I think it may have been out of a mercury grand marque or couger..

its still not a aod, then what you have is a 4R70W, an electronically controlled auto tranny (on 94-up mn12)
for $100 yeah that's a good price but that tranny just wouldn't work at all with your set up
a 4.6 is a 281 and the tranny from 4.6 is completely different from a 3.8 and 5.0 the bolt pattern of it is different, if you had really wanted to mount that 4R70W it would of have of been from a 3.8 and even so you would need to do some fancy wiring
my suggestion is to turn back and run away...and look for a real aod

The AOD will bolt right up to a 289. It is the same block as a 302. Putting a "modern" AOD into an old car is not unheard of.

FYI - the AOD came out in 1980 (give or take a year).

1991 Ford Mustang GT
1998 Lincoln Continental
1999 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0

AOD- 1980-1993. (edit: There were half a year of 4.6's with AODs, but they had the 5.0 bellhousing, so they still wouldnt bolt up to most 4.6's), they should all be the 5.0 bellhousing pattern to my knowledge. The later ones were supposed to be a bit improved over the 80s ones. Fully hydraulic controlled.
AODE- 1994-5 Mustang, 1992.5-1994 CrownVic/Marquis/Towncar. Both 5.0 and 4.6 bellhousings available. Computer controlled.
4R70W - 1993-98 Mark8, 94-97 MN12, 96+ Mustang, 95+ Vics ... Both bellhousings available, 98+ ones are much stronger. Computer controlled.

96 Mustang GT 5spd. w/ 248A Option (GTS). Stock for now until I get the Roush on.

97 Thunderbird 4.6L LX /w Sport Package
24k B&M Cooler, 1" lowered, Steeda UD Pulleys, Dynomax cat-back, J-mod, 3.73's, PI intake, PI cams, 03 GT MAF/Tube, SCT tuned - Gone but not forgotten.
