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.

'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.

This is the story of Brian Aust and his 1968 Mercury Cougar 427 GT-E.

On January 22, 2011, he drove it onto the auction block at Barrett-Jackson, stepped out, and watched it sell for... well, you'll just have to watch to find out!

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!

2006 Mustang GT Re-bodied to 1970 Mach 1 Must see 05
We are doing a video, documenting this entire project which entails grafting the body of a 1970 Mach1 onto a complete platform of a 2006 Mustang GT 4.6 5-speed. Our goal is to build redesign, and fabricate etc. a 1970 Mach1 body onto a full 2006 platform which includes ALL Mechanical,electrical,safety,suspension drive train, and all technical attributes of a 2006. The end result will be you walk up to this vehicle which appears to be a beautifully restored Mach 1 in every respect. You then open the door than, -Voila-! you've transcended into 2006. You open the Hood or look under the car it's all 2006. Finally, you get behind the wheel and drive away and it's 2006. Please view all of our videos and watch for our upcoming segments @http://www.nwautocreations.com/photos/





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.





1970 Torino Cobra 429CJ 4-Speed For Sale! (SOLD)
This car has been sold! Video will be left up for posterity, and because it's awesome. eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181246173812 This listing is for my beloved 1970 429 CJ, Ford Torino Cobra with a factory 4-speed transmission. This car is unusual in that it came with manual drum brakes and manual steering. A friend of mine sold me this car just before he passed away several years ago. Max bought the car in the early 80's from the original owner (see documentation) so that makes me the third registered owner. The 429 CJ motor and transmission were completely rebuilt by Alderidge Motor Sports in Portland, OR. As the video attests to and the documentation shows, a top notch job was ordered and it runs out VERY strong. The drive-train has about 30,000 miles on it since the extensive rebuild and would need very little to be rated a 10. It does not have its numbers-matching block anymore, and the carburetor is an aftermarket Holley, incorrect numbered distributor and other minor details need attention or are not correct (see video). It has a VERY solid Western body and some very nice interior parts. Please watch the video for specifics as I go into much further detail there. Feel free to call me at 503-463-1130 if you need further information. I feel this car is worth about $25,000.00, but my reserve is much less than that. We can help with shipping worldwide as I have done it many times over the last 25 years. I will consider trades for 67-73 parts or parts cars. Thank you! Don Rush 503-463-1130





1967 Cougar Headlight Vacuum Solenoid Tips, Tricks, Do's and Don'ts
We snuck into Brian's garage while he was away and filmed this informational video on the unique 1967 headlight vacuum solenoid. It's a complicated and temperamental little device that you can ruin easily if you don't know what you're doing. Our goal with this video is to help you understand how this solenoid works, and some of the "do's and don'ts" of testing and installing them. Our rebuilt units are listed on our website here: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/67hdvacsol.html

Electric Hideaway Headlight Actuator Conversion: 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to replace your early Cougar's vacuum-operated hideaway headlight system with a simpler, more reliable electric conversion kit. This kit includes two remanufactured Ford Probe headlight motors, a custom wiring harness, and custom bracketry and hardware for this specific application, making installation simple. To view the kit, click here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13676-Electric-Headlight-Door-Co nversion-Kit-with-Motors-New-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html Some reasons to go this route instead of keeping your vacuum system: - Easier to keep your grille straight. The vacuum system puts constant pressure on the grille. - Cheaper as a whole. To replace your entire vacuum system is significantly more expensive. - faster and more even opening & closing. No more slow opening / closing one at a time. - Can operate without the engine running. - Perfect solution for those with high performance engines with low vacuum. - Etc.

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

How to Apply a Hood Stripe Decal
Applying decals is something that is technically possible for the average person, but often not attempted for fear of "messing it up." In this video, we watch an experienced professional install a tricky hood stripe on a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ. He shows some of his methods, and emphasizes that even for him, it can be a process of trial-and-error to get it right.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!
