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 fact. 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? Vehicle information above is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. All vehicles are offered subject to an inspection and an appraisal if desired. Financing is available through JJ Best Banc. Delivery arrangements are available. For ore information, please call 503-855-345 of 1-888-597-6719.

Installing Opera Lights on any 67-68 Cougar
If you own a standard 1967 or 1968 Mercury Cougar, you may have noticed (with some envy) that the upscale XR-7's of those years have extra interior lighting on the C-pillars. These are referred to as rear courtesy lights, or opera lights. We have just reproduced the chrome / clear lenses for these, which add an extra touch of class and functionality to your interior. They are especially useful because Cougars didn't come with an interior dome light, so nighttime visibility is somewhat limited on the interior of a standard Cougar. The good news is - even if your car never came with these lights from the factory, your car already has the wiring for them. All you have to do is cut the tape holding the single wire to the harness and feed it through the appropriate hole (see video). So all you will need is a pair of used housings and a pair of our new lenses. Links to parts below. Used housings: New lenses: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/l4e9.html OR we also have used original lenses, which are cheaper but not as nice..
