Cougar Buying Guide Ep.3 - 1968 XR-7 390 "Barn Find"
In this video, Don goes over a 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 in brutal detail, looking at originality, searching for rust, inspecting the interior and engine bay, and more. This car exhibits a lot of pros and cons that you might run across when looking at buying a classic Cougar yourself. We felt that the "pros" pretty much speak for themselves; it's a very attractive car, great color combination, good options, good condition, and a big block 390 that runs great. With that in mind, we spent most of the video picking on all the little negatives that you might not have noticed otherwise. This car is currently for sale on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=171762974980&ssPageName= STRK:MESE:IT Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

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.
