I would look for loose change under the seats and sun glasses left in the seat pockets....
But seriously the major differences were the creature comforts of the Lincoln and the 4V heads on the Lincoln motors that offered a little higher performance. But by this age the creature comfort items were more prone to failure and headaches with repairs. The less frilly Expeditions would be the better choice in my opinion. I never liked the view of the Navigator from the rear either. It just looked funky. I think Lincoln always goes overboard with the chrome accents too. It's a 6,000 lbs refridgerator on wheels ! Stop trying to make it look like a Town Car...
