Door Panel Backer Boards - How To Replace (1967-1970 Cougar)
Since door panels aren't reproduced for Cougars, good used originals are valuable. Sometimes, the front vinyl side is usable, but the backer boards are toast. Luckily, there's a solution. We now carry brand new, better-than-stock backer boards made from a more durable pressboard material. We have a version for 1967-1968 Cougars, as well as another version for 1969-1970 Cougars. See links below. In this video, we show you how to separate a vinyl door panel from its old backer board, repair the metal hanger piece, and reattach it and the vinyl to the new backer board. We also cover removal & replacement of the inner beltline strip (the felt-lined trim that touches the door glass).

1968 Mercury Cougar LED Taillight Comparison.wmv
This is the final chapter in my quest to find the ultimate LED lights for my 1968 Mercury Cougar. The ones that I'm happy with are part number: 1157-R18-T. They are $18.00 ea., but well worth it, as you can see from the video. Even outside, these bulbs really are bright! I almost considered getting their 45 LED light tower bulb (for $25.00 ea), but now, I'm glad I didn't! The company to get these from, is: www.superbrightleds.com.

Saturday, 1/19/13 - For those who couldn't be here, this is a quick, sloppy, informal video to give you a taste of what it's like to party at Bill Basore's house, and to put some faces to the names you may be familiar with from the Classic Cougar Community Forums ( http://www.classiccougarcommunity.com ) and elsewhere in Cougar legend. Just walking around with the camera talking to people and looking at cars briefly. Nothing fancy!

557,000 Miles and Counting (She's 90; Her Car's 45; Both Are Still On The Road)
At 90 years old, this Depression-era great-grandmother from Orlando, Fla., has a lesson for all of us about surviving in a tough economy. Shes still driving her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente. Price back then: $3,289. Thats less than the $4,500 the government gives to trash a car today in the cash for clunkers program. She jokes her car has been oh-so-faithful. She's better than three husbands," Veitch said. Shes never lied to me, shes never cheated on me, and I can always depend on her. But with nearly 600,000 miles on the odometer, the real story is in those lifetime warranties. She paid Midas $42.23 for a lifetime muffler. Such a deal! Midas has replaced her muffler seven times. Ditto with JCPenney and her battery: Shes had 17 batteries replaced. Even though JCPenney no longer has an automotive department, they still make arrangements to honor her contract. Then theres Sears and the shock absorbers. Sears has replaced her shocks three times. Three cheers for Rachel, who has collected for all Americans who bought extended warranties but for some loophole reason, never collected. As I sat with Rachel in her living room, teapot on a doily, I felt I could be with anyones grandmother in America. But when we hopped behind the wheel of her baby, the car she nicknamed Chariot so long ago, her bright eyes and tight grip confirmed Rachel, like her car, is an American original. She picked up her 1970s-era CB radio, flipped over to channel 19 and asked, Is anyone out there? Static. No answer. Without missing a beat, she joked, I guess theyre all dead. If there was ever a person who loves to kid around, loves cars, and is as quick as a rabbit start in a Mercury with a 260 V8, its Rachel. Shes pushed her car up to 120 miles per hour. The speedometer quits at 120, so I could have been going faster, she said. Rachel, a retired nurse, enjoys showing off her car to auto enthusiasts. Her goal (yes, folks in their 90s still have goals) is to one day go toe-to-toe with another funny, car-loving American: Jay Leno. As they used to say in the old radio days: Stay tuned.

Door Hinge Rebuild - 1969 Cougar
In this video, we show how to rebuild your classic's door hinges with new pins and bushings, with useful tips and tricks throughout the process. In this case, we decided to do it with the door and fender still on the car. Normally, it's a better idea to remove the door, leave the hinges on the car, and rebuild them in place... but Don's car has power windows, so removing the door is much more difficult with the wiring. Check out our door hinge parts at http://cougparts.com





How To Replace 1967 Cougar Steeing Wheel Emblem & Trim
The 1967 Mercury Cougar has a unique steering wheel with a black "Cougar" emblem in the center.

Same with the plastic chrome trim ring - they are often faded, but a nice reproduction is available. In this video, Don shows how to remove the old emblem and trim ring and install new ones on your original 1967 steering wheel center / horn pad. For more info about the parts we mentioned in this video, check out the steering wheel section on our website here: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/stwhpa.html Check out our facebook page too! http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar





Zoe - West Coast Classic Cougar Request
My daughter Zoe is trying to receive a 1967 Mercury Cougar GT 4 Speed Car from West Coast Classi Cougars in Oregon. This is her Video submission. Please West Coast Classic Cougar help my dauger with her dream of owning a Cougar. Myself I still own my 67 Mercury Cougar that I built in high school (zoe is going to the same school). My wife still has her 1968 Mercury Cougar xr7 Gt which was her first car. We are all Members of the Mercury StrayCat's Cougar Club. My wife and myself were a couple of the founding members. I think Zoe would be a good fit to restore the 1967 Mercury Cougar Gt and keep it for years to come. One thing I am not seeing often is younger people restoring the old cars. If young kids do not keep up the hobby who will?? Lord Lucas and his Leadfoot Ladies will. Please let West Coast Classic Cougars know that you also want to see a young girl (who by the way does already drive a manual transmission) restore and keep another Mercury Cougar Alive !!!





Two '67 Cougars in Paris
This spring, our photo / video guy Andrew was on vacation in Europe and met up with some classic Cougar owners in France. It was quite an experience to drive through Paris with two '67 Cougars. It's a shame (dommage) that the weather wasn't nicer, but it was a great day nonetheless. Special thanks to Jean Compain and Claude Etchegorry for their time and generosity.
