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.

American Big Block Luxury Sedans, 1963-1970
These were the best sedans money could buy back when you could get serious luxury from the Big Three. Lincoln Continentals were equipped with the 430 Super Marauder V8 {a MEL engine also used in Mercurys, hence the Marauder name} in the early 60s, which eventually yielded to the 462 MEL V8 {the biggest engine in the family, basically an enlarged 430.} Finally, the 385-series 460 V8 was used starting in 1968, and this motor was used in Continentals until 1978. Chrysler Imperials used a high-performance 413 RB V8 until 1965, when the big 440 TNT motors were used. The 440 was used well into the 70s. Cadillac Fleetwoods were at first equipped with 390 V8s, which were upsized to 429s in 1964. Following the 429, a massive 472 V8 was introduced which provided more torque than any muscle car engine of the day and had massive 4 inch bore and stroke diameters. Finally, the largest production engine offered at the time, a massive 8.2 liter {500ci} V8 was used from 1970 on. This engine produced a healthy 400 horsepower and 550 lb. ft. of torque, all available at RPMs no higher than 3000. These engines signaled that the excess of the 70s was coming, and of course style began to suffer. Clean uncluttered cars were replaced with acres of chrome and ugly front end treatments. These were the last of a line of cars that started in the 50s, big flashy cars with clean styling and enourmous engines.
