Is It Numbers Matching? - 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

Freddie on the Dyno
My '68 Mercury Cougar get his first Dyno run. This is on the old
Torker 289 intake, long headers of questionable parentage, 284H Crane cam
and jetting as it came, I've rebuilt the 700cfm Holley DP carb and there's
a 2.5" Magnaflow system on it. On, and the brand new T5 gearbox. :)
1970 Mercury Cougar XR7
1970 Mercury Cougar XR-7
"The mood is upbeat. The spirit is untamed. The car is Cougar.” This was
one of the many taglines Mercury used in their sales brochure for the
classic Mercury Cougar. These cars were incredibly unique and built to
perform. This 1970 Cougar is a nice driver and is a factory XR7 edition
which included simulated wood trim, a tachometer, an electric clock and
special wheel covers. The exterior is coated in a bright yellow that suits
the look of the car nicely. This is paired with nice chrome bumpers,
stainless trim, and one of the most uniquely designed front grills made.
The hideaway headlights flip around from behind what looks to be part of
the grill and operate properly. In the rear you will find sequential
taillights that span almost the entire rear of the car. The car has a nice
solid stance with a slight rake and rides on custom aftermarket wheels.
Powering up this classic is a 351 Windsor as it would have come from the
factory. These motors have plenty of power and run well. It is topped
with Silver valve covers and a Silver air cleaner with most of the other
parts finished out in Black. It is combined with an automatic transmission
that shifts smoothly and moves through the gears with no problems. This
car is also fitted with power steering and power brakes making it very
comfortable to drive.
The interior of the car was just installed and is done in a Black and
Yellow color combination. The bucket seats are comfortable and are done in
leather and faux ostrich skin. Between the seats is the original center
console which houses the shifter and is fitted with additional gauge pods.
The dash has a stock appearance with all the factory gauges, trim, etc.
The only major customization there is the added AM/FM/CD player. Air
conditioning is also in place which blows cold without issues.
