1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible
http://www.motoexotica.com/inventory/6008/1972_Mercury__Cougar.htm • Beautiful Blue & White Convertible! • Incredible Two Tone Interior! • 351ci V8! • Automatic Transmission! Mercury Cougar is the name applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company from 1967 to 2002. As was common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford models. Originally, this was the Mustang, later the Thunderbird, and the last a version of the Contour. The Cougar was important to Mercury's image for many years, and advertising often identified its dealers as being "at the sign of the cat." Female models holding big cats on leashes were used on Cougar ads in the early 1970s. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer the handsome 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible. The '72 Cougar XR-7 you see today is said to be a 93,931 original mile car that is finished in the original color combination of Bright Blue Metallic with White/Blue interior. The paint looks very good and shows no major spots of imperfections, just a few minor spots of touch up. The power white convertible top is equally as nice with no staining, rips or tears to the vinyl. The rear window is glass. Inside, the White/ Blue vinyl interior is the original for the car and in great condition. The carpet appears to have been replaced recently and is in great condition. The dash, door panels, arm rest and wood grain trim are all equally as nice with on major wear showing. Under the hood, the 351 cubic inch V8 runs great and starts with a turn of the key. The motor is said to be the original for the car and still retains its original 2 barrel carburetor, power steering, power disc brakes and air conditioning. The air conditioning is currently inoperable but it appears to only be in need of a charge. The engine is nicely detailed and very original. No damage to be found. The motor is connected to the three speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and performs with no problems. Under the car is very solid with no rot that we have seen. It appears to be all original metal under this original southern car. The VIN is 2F94H517485 and the mileage currently shows 93,931, which is believed to be original for the car. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!

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.

1970 Mercury Cougar convertible for sale
You are looking at a lovely example of a classic Mercury Cougar convertible, finished in dark red the original colour, with red interior, a very solid rust free California car since new, still wears the original blue and yellow california license plates. I purchased this car last year from the estate of the original owner, who sadly passed away. The car has 351 V8 2bbl with automatic, and has had an Vintage Air air conditioning system professionally installed at a cost of nearly $3500, its a really nice installation, and will freeze your ta tas off! I have put new brake pads, calipers, master cylinder and Booster. New KYB shocks front and rear, and a brand new custom made dual Exhaust system that is nice and subtle that will not upset your neighbours on a Sunday morning!! The ignition switch was replaced, and all the belts and hoses have been recently replaced, along with Platinum spark plugs, new plug wires. I also added a Petronix ignition system and Flamethrower coil to make the car a reliable everyday driver. The electric windows have been rebuilt and the car has a power top with new cylinders and hoses, the top is in excellent condition with a glass rear window, the parade boot is also present. I have over $15k in receipts !! The interior is exceptionally nice, carpet is like new, the seats are excellent, and the dash pad is perfect, not warped or cracked, an Alpine AM FM Cd player has been installed with upgraded speakers behind stock looking door speaker grilles This convertible body style was only made for 1969 and 1970, so they are pretty rare, only 2322 convertibles were made in 1970 !! So there cannot be too many left. The Mercury shares many of the mechanical items such as suspension, brakes, etc with the ubiquitous Mustang, The car runs and drives very well, and needs nothing but a driver, the transmission shifts well, car brakes perfectly, and the top, windows, wipers, and lights all work. The car is sold completely as is, no warranty expressed or implied, this is a 42 year old car, its not perfect, but its very nice. Please ask questions, I strongly encourage inspections, the car is titled in my name, no liens, with a clear California title, and the car is currently registered and insured. The car is located in Los Angeles, I can arrange shipping overseas or nationwide at your cost. Please have your finances in order before you look at the car. If you have to ask your wife, bank manager, cat or dog, please move on !! And don't bid, if you have a less than perfect feedback rating or lower than 5 please contact me before bidding. Thanks for looking. :) I have tried to be honest and accurate in my descriptions, but descriptions are open to interpretation, so please ask specific questions. Car is for sale locally so I reserve to end the auction early, so if you want to buy the car give me a call and lets do a deal. Neil 310 seven 39 71-80 or email neil@thecarappraiser.com

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.





1973 Mercury Cougar XR7
Too bad the hood isn't up, but you can see it had been raining! Nice combination of light blue body color with black vinyl top. This had been the original color of my 72 Mustang Grande! My guess is that it has a 351 c.i. engine with automatic.
