Muscle Car Of The Week Video #37: 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 Cobra Jet 428
In 1969, you could walk in to your local Mercury dealer and rumble out behind the wheel of a Cougar XR7 Cobra Jet 428 and win street races without attracting the attention of the local fuzz. The '69 XR7 CJ428 is a 335 HP / 440 TQ tire-burner with subtle European design flair. The Brothers Collection is home to many bright and loud Muscle Cars, but this one is an example of speaking softly and carrying a big V8!

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.
