67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe
Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet
drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours
restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop
KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA.
A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of
another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with
a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod
shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car
was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring
close to six figures.
What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering
experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the
untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be
said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of
the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This
video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson
with us. Enjoy!

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
American Muscle Car - The Mercury Cougar
THE AMERICAN MUSCLECAR series brings you the third season, profiling some
of the most influential cars in automotive history:
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.

1968 Cougar 427 GT-E at Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale 2011
This is the story of Brian Aust and his 1968 Mercury Cougar 427 GT-E. Over
the course of about 5 years, he undertook a painstaking restoration to
bring the car to the highest level he could, with a little help from his
friends (and lots of advice from folks on http://www.mercurycougar.net ).
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

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:
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
- 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.
