Radiator and Fan Upgrade - Small Block Cougar / Mustang 1967-70
One of the most common issues on these old cars is overheating. The cooling systems were only designed to cope with so much, and over the years many small block engines have been bored out, hopped up, had A/C added, etc. Since Ford provided a very capable 24-inch radiator on big-block and A/C equipped cars, why not take advantage of the best factory cooling equipment available, without messing up the original look under the hood? We have all the parts you need to achieve this conversion, including our premium reproduction steel clutch fans. This video applies not only to Cougars and Mustangs, but to a wide range of classic Ford / Mercury cars and trucks.

Street racing in 1979, Dieters 1970 Cougar
Dieter's 1970 Cougar Eliminator (former NHRA Super Stock car) with a modified Boss 351C motor, (very rare), street racing an all out 1969 Camaro drag car in 1979. Old school street racing where it all began and the way it was back then. NO juice in those days, and healthy small blocks were making about 425 HP. Just so the viewers of this video are properly informed, this race took place in Mississauga/Ont. on Matheson blvd.

Wrecks to Riches | S02E02 | Mercury Cougar
Barry, Chris and Tony are looking for a racing legend. Two actually. The boys start searching for a '68 Mercury Cougar. Barry wants to transform it into a Super Muscle Car classic racer, the XR-7G. The G stands for Gurney, as in Dan Gurney. He is the second legend on their hit-list, an old-school racer who flew the U.S. flag around the world in Formula One, Indy, and the famous Le Mans behind the wheel of the Ford GT. To get Dan's blessing would be a dream come true. And having him sign the car would be the ultimate endorsement. But if that's gonna happen, there's a lot of work to do with no time for screw-ups. Everything will have to be perfect to entice the legend to join the project. Barry's daughter Jen has a thing for legends that belies her tender age. She loves the old-school monsters above modern race cars; the raw engineering and power of the early classics are what spins her wheels. Will she get the chance to meet the great man? Jen will move heaven and earth to make it happen. Jen is also moving herself. She's finally leaving home and living in her own apartment. It's a big turning point in the White's lives: Mom, Becky, has to say goodbye to her only child, while Barry gets her bedroom back for car stuff. But it's not as if they won't see each other every day at the shop.
