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.

COUGAR TEST DRIVE
badassness. this is my 67 cougar xr7. it has a rebuilt 289 .30 over. pretty hot mild cam. 500cfm edelbrock carb. aluminum ford racing intake. rebuilt c4 automatic transmission. turbo Exhaust made by summit. hedman headers. its running a little rich in this video my step dad says. this is my first car and so far all i learned from cars is from building this beast so i have no clue what running rich sounds like haha. but i know this things kicks pretty hard. havent got a chance to really open her up yet because i still need to break in the motor. theres less than 50 miles on the rebuilt motor and transmission. all the front suspension is done and steering parts are on their way and will be done. found a crack in the shock tower i will need to get welded before alignment but thats not too big of a problem. more videos to come.





Crushing Cars at West Coast Classic Cougar
CONTEST HAS ENDED We ran a contest to see who could guess how much the pile of 40 cars, the junk-filled truck, and the old forklift shown in this video total in either tonnage or dollar value (at $260/ton). The closest guess, without going over the actual amount, won a $100 gift certificate in our online store ( http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com ). -- Contest ended May 1, 2011 -- Also note that West Coast Classic Cougar no longer has parts for 1974-79 Cougars.

'70 Cougar Convertible Buying Guide - What To Look For
Having recently bought a 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible with a 428 Cobra Jet, Don started going over the car with a fine-toothed comb and discovered a few things he didn't notice when he first inspected the car with the seller. This was the inspiration for this video, in which we spend some time looking at some of the details, like a forensics team, to find out some important details about this car (both good and bad). This time, we don't spend any time looking at matching numbers and date codes and engine "correctness" (sharp-eyed viewers will notice the incorrect oil pan... the engine block in this car turned out to be a 390 that was bored out and had the Cobra Jet heads and manifolds bolted on). Our main focus here is to evaluate structural integrity and bodywork. When it comes to expensive and involved repairs, it doesn't get much worse than bodywork, so you want to make sure the car you're looking at is as straight and rust-free as possible. We hope this video proves helpful! Keep these hints in mind the next time you go to look at a classic car, Cougar convertible or otherwise. Some of the info here is specific to Cougars, but much of it applies to other classic cars as well. Looking for Cougar parts? We have everything 1967-1973.

1969 Glue-In Glass: The Comprehensive Repair Guide
1969 and the first part of 1970 was an epic fail for Ford on all its intermediate line. Gluing the glass in instead of bolting it in was one of many cost cutting measures, and it just did not go well. In this comprehensive video Don shows us how to service just about every piece front and rear on a 1969 Cougar. Don also shows the many differences 1969 vs early 1970 and late 1970. Keep in mind all the tips shown here directly apply to a 69-70 Mustang Coupe or convertible; many will also apply to the 69-70 Fastback. Even if you choose not to do the repairs shown here yourself the information is invaluable and you should insist on having your tech review this video before proceeding on your car.

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.

The V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep.11-1]
One of the most popular cars of the Muscle car era... the Mercury Cougar... has been one of the most overlooked cars in recent decades. Today on GEARZ all of that changes as Stacey rolls in a solid '67 Cougar... dubs it the "V8 Interceptor"... and begins to completely change the front suspension to get rid of the stock shock towers and turn this little old lady's car into a corner-carving, road-gripping beast. But wait!... you can't cut out the shock towers can you!?! Yes you can!... and Stacey goes in-depth on not only how to do it, but also the installation of a complete TCI independent front suspension. If you own or want to own a classic Mustang, Cougar, Fairlane, or other 60's Ford, and have always wished you could get rid of those stock shock towers to get more room in the engine compartment, this is the show for you.

Portland Swap Meet - April Fools 2011
Since the famous Portland Swap meet fell around April 1st this year, we had to take advantage of the opportunity. Don (owner of West Coast Classic Cougar) disguised himself and got some undercover, candid feedback from customers and friends from all over the swap meet. Not only was it a good source of survey data, but the swap meet itself was a lot of fun, and we found lots of Cougar parts!
