first start of the 1967 cougar

After just a *few* attempts (and replacing the fuel pump), the 289 2 barrel cougar finally starts for us at the 24 second mark. (followed by fuel leaking out of the top and bottom engine just after this ended.....but hey, at least it started!) Background noise is the Volvo, acting as a battery charger, as the cougar's battery is DEAD. Unfortunately, another fuel pump is now required as it was cross-threaded.....)

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.
