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.

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!

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010
