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.
