American Muscle Car - The Mercury Cougar
THE AMERICAN MUSCLECAR series brings you the third season, profiling some
of the most influential cars in automotive history:
1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 289 V8 50xxx Actual Miles
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7.
This beauty only has about 50,xxx original miles and it really looks great.
It's powered by the original 289 V8 and it has been really nicely restored
under the hood. All the power is sent through a C4 automatic to an 8" rear
with 2.73 gears. The interior looks to be all original and extremely well
kept as well. This really is a great car all the way around. Thanks for
checking it out!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 - Mellow Yellow?? - NOT! - HEAR ME ROAR! TOO LATE--I'M GONE!
Here is a super nice 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 with less than 119K miles.
This car has always been an Oregon car. We believe it is also a numbers
matching car and once verified, we will change this ad to reflect that
It still has the original 289 two-barrel, but now has an Edelbrock
Performer intake and Holley 4 barrel and the stock manifolds have new dual
Exhaust with glass packs and H-pipe.
The interior is in quite good shape including the carpets, headliner, dash
and door panels. The seat covers have been replaced to look original with
quality upholstery which we believe to be leather.
All the gauges, dash lights, wipers, sequential turn signals, horn, lights
and as well as all electrical work great. The radio is original AM/FM with
rear speakers. Did you happen to live in a rural area back then and tried
to pull in the rock and roll sounds of a radio station in the city—it's
about the same as then--sporadic. You could leave it stock or put in a
great new stereo. While having been repainted once, it was repainted the
correct original Jamaican Yellow with tasteful black pin stripes and the
body is quite straight.
The glass is all original with the proper date code and all chrome and trim
are there. There are reproduction factory S/S wheels from West Coast
Classic Cougar and good Michelin radials with narrow whitewalls. This car
shows very well and has been in several car shows and cruise-ins. It has
spent most of its life stored inside and was only driven about 4K miles in
the past year.
Recent work and improvements to the car include but are not limited to:
tune up, plugs, wires, filters, and oil, the sequential turn signal module
was replaced with updated solid-state unit, both vacuum canisters for the
hideaway headlights have been replaced (there is a lifetime warranty on
these), various vacuum lines, new Exhaust from crossover back, new ignition
switch, headlight switch, battery, voltage regulator, heavy duty alternator
and the tilt-away steering column was rebuilt with new solenoids. It
starts right up, drives very well, stops straight, shifts crisply and has
made many round trips from Salem to Portland and oh yeah—did we mention
it SOUNDS incredible and is anything but mellow?

Restoration of 1967 Mercury Cougar
700hrs of restoration compressed into 3.5 minutes... turn up the volume and
enjoy the ride! Thanks for your comments... it's always nice to hear from
fellow muscle car era afficiandos. Cheers.
1967 Mercury Cougar XR7
A 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. 302 V8, C4, Aluminum Heads, Roller Rockers,
Roller Cam, 4V, AC, PS, PB. Restoration was completed in 2006. Originally
purchased in Ontario California. Purchased from Weber & Cooper
Lincoln/Mercury in late 1967. I purchased the car in 1988 and drove it for
a few years. Full restoration started in 1994. Now it isa weekend and
summer day recreational driver. This video was taken using a digital still
camera so the quality is not as good as I had hoped for.
Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
