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?

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.





1968 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupe GT 6.5 litre (390 Big Block)
Have had this project for some time now, and don't have the time it deserves to be put into it. This is a very very rare car. Most of the Cougars you may find have the 289 ci V8. This car has the 390 big block -The power is unbelievable. Back in the day, Ford marketed the Mustang "for the man starting out", the Mercury Cougar was marketed as for "the man who was on his way". (The Thunderbird was marketed for "the man who had arrived") Car is unbelievably powerful, pulls rubber in all 3 gears. I have had the car for a long time, started it several times every year. But it is time to let it go to a good home. This is a numbers matching authentic S code 390 Cougar XR7. These are unique and beautiful cars.
