Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

1967 Mercury Cougar 289 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very cool 1967 Mercury Cougar. It's powered by a 289 V8, backed by a 3 spd automatic. It's equipped with hideaway headlights, a hood scoop, rear spoiler, etc. It could use a little work here and there, but overall, it's a great looking car. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching! The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod. Available under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license.

Door Panel Backer Boards - How To Replace (1967-1970 Cougar)
Since door panels aren't reproduced for Cougars, good used originals are valuable. Sometimes, the front vinyl side is usable, but the backer boards are toast. Luckily, there's a solution. We now carry brand new, better-than-stock backer boards made from a more durable pressboard material. We have a version for 1967-1968 Cougars, as well as another version for 1969-1970 Cougars. See links below. In this video, we show you how to separate a vinyl door panel from its old backer board, repair the metal hanger piece, and reattach it and the vinyl to the new backer board. We also cover removal & replacement of the inner beltline strip (the felt-lined trim that touches the door glass).

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 dates. 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.

Burnout by One Wicked 1968 Mercury Cougar
We went to a charity rod run in Wright City, MO about a week ago and this menacing looking Mercury Cougar was rolling around. It's completely blacked out and I believe I smelled some race gas as it rolled past. He decided to bring it out to the burnout pit, just to give people a little taste of the power lurking under that hood. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for taking a look!

1967 Mercury Cougar First Start In 25+ Years





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.





Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967 Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag strip.





1970 Torino Cobra 429CJ 4-Speed For Sale! (SOLD)
This car has been sold! Video will be left up for posterity, and because it's awesome. eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181246173812 This listing is for my beloved 1970 429 CJ, Ford Torino Cobra with a factory 4-speed transmission. This car is unusual in that it came with manual drum brakes and manual steering. A friend of mine sold me this car just before he passed away several years ago. Max bought the car in the early 80's from the original owner (see documentation) so that makes me the third registered owner. The 429 CJ motor and transmission were completely rebuilt by Alderidge Motor Sports in Portland, OR. As the video attests to and the documentation shows, a top notch job was ordered and it runs out VERY strong. The drive-train has about 30,000 miles on it since the extensive rebuild and would need very little to be rated a 10. It does not have its numbers-matching block anymore, and the carburetor is an aftermarket Holley, incorrect numbered distributor and other minor details need attention or are not correct (see video). It has a VERY solid Western body and some very nice interior parts. Please watch the video for specifics as I go into much further detail there. Feel free to call me at 503-463-1130 if you need further information. I feel this car is worth about $25,000.00, but my reserve is much less than that. We can help with shipping worldwide as I have done it many times over the last 25 years. I will consider trades for 67-73 parts or parts cars. Thank you! Don Rush 503-463-1130
