Cougar Buying Guide Ep.4 - 1973 XR-7 Convertible
In this video, Don goes over a low-mileage, almost entirely original example of a 1973 Mercury Cougar XR-7 convertible. Much of the information here also applies to hardtops and 1971-72 cars. He talks about unique 1973 parts that are hard to find, and some of the areas on the car to check for rust and damage. Basically the theme of this video is: the 1971-73 Cougars can be great drivers on a budget, but don't expect it to be easy to fully restore one to "perfect" status.
