1975 MERCURY COUGAR XR7 -- MORE PLUSH THAN THE THUNDERBIRD
Now here's a keeper. This factory-new conditioned Cougar XR7 finished in Bronze Gold Diamond Fire paint is the only Cougar model produced this year and only in hardtop form. The XR7 was meant to be an upgrade from the personal luxury car Thunderbird and it was. The XR7 was powered by a by a V8, 351 cid / 148 - 150 hp. engine. Though the T-Bird had a V8, 460 cid / 194 hp., by far a larger engine, the Cougar offered a plush interior. Most likely this trend was to keep the loyal Cougar fans on board. I supposed it worked, for Cougars outsold T-Bird by ten thousand units this year with a total of 62,987. The XR7 had a suggested retail price of $5,218. I think this XR7 example is clean and like new and noticed all of the enrichment of it's looks both outside and inside. I always admired those vinyl landau roofs and opera windows. It's truly a beautiful Merc. Thanks very much for viewing this 1975 Cougar XR7.
