Cougar Buying Guide Ep.1 - 1970 XR-7 Convertible 428 CJ
Having recently bought a 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible with a 428 Cobra Jet, Don started going over the car with a fine-toothed comb and discovered a few things he didn't notice when he first inspected the car with the seller. This was the inspiration for this video, in which we spend some time looking at some of the details, like a forensics team, to find out some important details about this car (both good and bad). This time, we don't spend any time looking at matching numbers and date codes and engine "correctness" (sharp-eyed viewers will notice the incorrect oil pan... the engine block in this car turned out to be a 390 that was bored out and had the Cobra Jet heads and manifolds bolted on). Our main focus here is to evaluate structural integrity and bodywork. When it comes to expensive and involved repairs, it doesn't get much worse than bodywork, so you want to make sure the car you're looking at is as straight and rust-free as possible. We hope this video proves helpful! Keep these hints in mind the next time you go to look at a classic car, Cougar convertible or otherwise. Some of the info here is specific to Cougars, but much of it applies to other classic cars as well. Looking for Cougar parts? We have everything 1967-1973.

Cougar Buying Guide Ep.3 - 1968 XR-7 390 "Barn Find"
In this video, Don goes over a 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 in brutal detail, looking at originality, searching for rust, inspecting the interior and engine bay, and more. This car exhibits a lot of pros and cons that you might run across when looking at buying a classic Cougar yourself. We felt that the "pros" pretty much speak for themselves; it's a very attractive car, great color combination, good options, good condition, and a big block 390 that runs great. With that in mind, we spent most of the video picking on all the little negatives that you might not have noticed otherwise. This car is currently for sale on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=171762974980&ssPageName= STRK:MESE:IT Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?
