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

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.

American Muscle Car - The Mercury Cougar
THE AMERICAN MUSCLECAR series brings you the third season, profiling some
of the most influential cars in automotive history:
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. :)
*SOLD* 1969 Mercury Cougar "Black Cat"
Nothing looks sharper than a triple black car, and that is exactly what we
have here. Very nice 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible with black paint, a
black top, and a black interior. A powerful 351 Windsor powers this classic
street machine around. Power windows, locks, and top make this car a luxury
cruiser. Engine and transmission have less than 2,000 miles on a rebuild.
Please, call 800-231-3616 for additional details.

Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and
desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with
the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9
months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a
new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR
IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header.
The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual
numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get
her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no
problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more
vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with
the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent
roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K
as much money at all.
