67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

133120 / 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator Boss 302
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9fpv8je
Ready for a different kind of pony car? Take a close look at this pristine
1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. Fresh out of a comprehensive restoration,
this cat has and aggressive demeanor and plenty of power to back it up.
Restored to factory specifications, the body panels are straight in true in
every way. A coat of Ford's code N Pastel Blue covers the body, accented by
the black body-length stripes courtesy of the Eliminator package. While the
color may look white, there is a subtle blue tint that is guaranteed to
make this Mercury stand out in the crowd. Panel fitment is also far
superior to anything that left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1970.
Other pieces of the Eliminator package include a front chin spoiler,
blacked-out grilled, hood scoop, an air foil wing and discrete "Eliminator"
decals. The glass appears to be original as does the stainless trim around
it but both are in excellent condition overall. With its race-friendly
look, this is very clearly no common Cougar.
Under the hood, a familiar 290hp Boss 302 V8 provides more than enough
motivation to push this cat around town. From the properly decaled single
snorkel air cleaner to the date-code correct block, everything about the
powerplant looks as it did when it left the factory. The engine fires
immediately, idles well and has a menacing snarl to warn other drivers
exactly what is beside.
Beneath the car, a nicely detailed undercarriage consists of a factory
chassis with factory-correct overspray gracing the rock solid floor fans.
In the center, a Hurst-equipped Toploader 4-speed takes care of gear
selection while a nodular Ford nine-inch differential with 3.91 gears puts
the power the road. Steering is manual but braking is power assisted with
discs in the front and drums out back. The chassis meets the road through
Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around steel wheels topped with dog-dish
hubcaps and chrome beauty rings.
Between the doors, a Medium Blue interior is simple, comfortable and
functional. The hi-back bucket seats are wrapped in Comfortweave vinyl and
face a factory dashboard that houses the original instrumentation plus
climate controls and an AM/FM stereo. With the exception of the aluminum
Hurst shift handle, there are no frills to be found here. Behind the rear
seat, the trunk features a correct mat, jack and spare tire.
Documentation for this Cougar is strong with an original build sheet,
dealer invoice and several records that spell out the car's full history.
There is also a Marti Report that covers everything down to production
In this form, it's easy to imagine the Cougar as less of a sibling and more
of a rival to the Mustang.
With the Boss 302 and slick shifting Toploader, this cat offers all the fun
in a unique shell. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for
more information on this amazing Mercury.

Is It Numbers Matching? - 428 CJ Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.
