1969 Cougar XR7 / 351W 2V
This is my 1969 Cougar, which I'm in the process of restoring. This is basically how it looked when I first got it (aside from some serious cleanup). Forgive the shoddy editing, camera work, focus etc - this is my first film making effort. I will post another video after the first round of restore is complete (body, paint, upholstery). Thanks for viewing.

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes, and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible.

1969 Cougar XR7 Convertible Blu
A nice alternative...more of a luxury, personal car than its fraternal twin, the Mustang. Leather interior..and this one has a 351 c.i. engine, so it was capable enough! Hidden headlights in the fashion of the day! Great color!
