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

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 - Mellow Yellow?? - NOT! - HEAR ME ROAR! TOO LATE--I'M GONE!
Here is a super nice 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 with less than 119K miles.
This car has always been an Oregon car. We believe it is also a numbers
matching car and once verified, we will change this ad to reflect that
It still has the original 289 two-barrel, but now has an Edelbrock
Performer intake and Holley 4 barrel and the stock manifolds have new dual
Exhaust with glass packs and H-pipe.
The interior is in quite good shape including the carpets, headliner, dash
and door panels. The seat covers have been replaced to look original with
quality upholstery which we believe to be leather.
All the gauges, dash lights, wipers, sequential turn signals, horn, lights
and as well as all electrical work great. The radio is original AM/FM with
rear speakers. Did you happen to live in a rural area back then and tried
to pull in the rock and roll sounds of a radio station in the city—it's
about the same as then--sporadic. You could leave it stock or put in a
great new stereo. While having been repainted once, it was repainted the
correct original Jamaican Yellow with tasteful black pin stripes and the
body is quite straight.
The glass is all original with the proper date code and all chrome and trim
are there. There are reproduction factory S/S wheels from West Coast
Classic Cougar and good Michelin radials with narrow whitewalls. This car
shows very well and has been in several car shows and cruise-ins. It has
spent most of its life stored inside and was only driven about 4K miles in
the past year.
Recent work and improvements to the car include but are not limited to:
tune up, plugs, wires, filters, and oil, the sequential turn signal module
was replaced with updated solid-state unit, both vacuum canisters for the
hideaway headlights have been replaced (there is a lifetime warranty on
these), various vacuum lines, new Exhaust from crossover back, new ignition
switch, headlight switch, battery, voltage regulator, heavy duty alternator
and the tilt-away steering column was rebuilt with new solenoids. It
starts right up, drives very well, stops straight, shifts crisply and has
made many round trips from Salem to Portland and oh yeah—did we mention
it SOUNDS incredible and is anything but mellow?

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. Visit him

American Muscle Car - The Mercury Cougar
THE AMERICAN MUSCLECAR series brings you the third season, profiling some
of the most influential cars in automotive history:
SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior.
If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking
about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three
constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window
coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe.
The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in
the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could
practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's.
Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted
your Merc to stand out in a crowd!
And the sled being offered here does that in spades!
Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George
Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of
the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning
Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd
Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of
only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto
Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser.
The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched",
hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom
without Appleton spots!
The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a
'57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid
operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress
Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and
heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy
Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites
with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal!
It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new
owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A
