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.

Radiator and Fan Upgrade - Small Block Cougar / Mustang 1967-70
One of the most common issues on these old cars is overheating. The cooling systems were only designed to cope with so much, and over the years many small block engines have been bored out, hopped up, had A/C added, etc. Since Ford provided a very capable 24-inch radiator on big-block and A/C equipped cars, why not take advantage of the best factory cooling equipment available, without messing up the original look under the hood? We have all the parts you need to achieve this conversion, including our premium reproduction steel clutch fans. This video applies not only to Cougars and Mustangs, but to a wide range of classic Ford / Mercury cars and trucks.
