Had an old girl like that... sometimes you just had to rock her bk and forth while trying to shift her... linkage was worn and sloppy and was actually only going part way if you didn't shift into park all the way

Check the wires going to the brake light switch they brake often and check the switch. Step on the brakes first and make sure you have lights if not proceed to switch and wires at brake pedal

SOURCE: Gear shifter will not go into park

There is a plastic actuator stick under the shift knob. Remove the "horse shoe" clip from the shift knob and remove knob by pulling strait up. You can twist it right and left a very small amount to loosen the knob, but not much.
Once you have the shift knob removed you will see the plastic actuator stick. Push down on the stick and put shift lever in park. If that works, the shift knob or stick is worn out.
Let me know.
Regard,

SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln Town Car shifter stuck in park

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.
