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.

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 Dan Gurney Special- For Sale - Ebay
1967 Cougar XR7, Dan Gurney Special. I am the 3rd owner of this car. First
owner purchased car new in Petersburg, VA. Vehicle was sold in 1990 to
second owner eo lives in Mechanicsvile, VA. The second owner was a Ford
service mechanic. He replaced the original engine with a freshly rebuilt
5.0 Liter HO engine from a 1987 Mustang. He also installed a 9 inch
rear and disc brakes on all four wheels. Installed power adjustable front
seats, CD/radio, electric antenna, alarm system, and cruise control as
well. All components were replaced in order to make this car a reliable
long distance driver. He wanted to be able to drive this car anywhere.
Car rides smooth on the the interstate at 75 MPH. Just a solid car all
around. Garage kept since 1990. Second owner sold because he lost his
license due to his age and car was just not being driven.
Car just inspected and has has a valid Virginia November inspection and a
clear title. Since purchasing I have replaced the rear shocks, master
cylinder, Booster, tires, and
wheels. Car has been repainted it's original color Jamaican yellow earlier
this year. Engine has approximately 11,000 miles on rebuild. I have the
original seats, original radio, original clock, original spare tire, and
the Marti report for this car. Everything works except for AC and clock.
Told AC needs recharging, we just have not followed up to correct. All
lights work (think we may have one light of three missing on the right turn
signal, did not catch until we took this video, will fix), vaccum
headlights, sequential taillights, gauges, warning lights, etc. This car
is a solid driver and fun to drive. Do not find many in this great of
shape. Can take this car anywhere. We initially bought car for our son to
drive to school but since car has no shoulder belts my wife felt it was a
safety issue so we are selling. Welcome to inspect and drive the car.
Will not be disappointed. If any questions feel free to call me at
804-314-7492. Ask for Steve.
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.

Every year in August we have an open house at West Coast Classic Cougar.
We are based just outside of Salem, Oregon, and have a wrecking yard full
of 67-73 Cougars, and a warehouse full of new and used Cougar parts.
It's a two-day event that usually takes place on a Friday and Saturday. On
Friday, we have our open house and a small car show. Then in the evening,
we cruise over to Silverton for a barbecue at our friend Brian's place in
the middle of open farmland. Finally, on Saturday, we attend the Great
Oregon Steam-Up at Antique Powerland, located close by our shop in Brooks.
This year we had a reserved space for Cougars. There is an endless amount

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.
