1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 Dan Gurney Special- For Sale - Ebay
1967 Cougar XR7, Dan Gurney Special. I am the 3rd owner of this car. First
owner purchased car new in Petersburg, VA. Vehicle was sold in 1990 to
second owner eo lives in Mechanicsvile, VA. The second owner was a Ford
service mechanic. He replaced the original engine with a freshly rebuilt
5.0 Liter HO engine from a 1987 Mustang. He also installed a 9 inch
rear and disc brakes on all four wheels. Installed power adjustable front
seats, CD/radio, electric antenna, alarm system, and cruise control as
well. All components were replaced in order to make this car a reliable
long distance driver. He wanted to be able to drive this car anywhere.
Car rides smooth on the the interstate at 75 MPH. Just a solid car all
around. Garage kept since 1990. Second owner sold because he lost his
license due to his age and car was just not being driven.
Car just inspected and has has a valid Virginia November inspection and a
clear title. Since purchasing I have replaced the rear shocks, master
cylinder, Booster, tires, and
wheels. Car has been repainted it's original color Jamaican yellow earlier
this year. Engine has approximately 11,000 miles on rebuild. I have the
original seats, original radio, original clock, original spare tire, and
the Marti report for this car. Everything works except for AC and clock.
Told AC needs recharging, we just have not followed up to correct. All
lights work (think we may have one light of three missing on the right turn
signal, did not catch until we took this video, will fix), vaccum
headlights, sequential taillights, gauges, warning lights, etc. This car
is a solid driver and fun to drive. Do not find many in this great of
shape. Can take this car anywhere. We initially bought car for our son to
drive to school but since car has no shoulder belts my wife felt it was a
safety issue so we are selling. Welcome to inspect and drive the car.
Will not be disappointed. If any questions feel free to call me at
804-314-7492. Ask for Steve.

1967 Mercury Cougar 289 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very cool 1967 Mercury Cougar.
It's powered by a 289 V8, backed by a 3 spd automatic. It's equipped with
hideaway headlights, a hood scoop, rear spoiler, etc. It could use a
little work here and there, but overall, it's a great looking car. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
