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?

WCCC Open House / Cruise / BBQ / Great Oregon Steam-Up 2011
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 of cool antique machinery to see at this show.
If this event sounds like fun to you, hop in your Cougar and we'll see you next year!

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.

Ford fans, have you been searching for something different? Seen enough Mustangs and Fairlanes for a while? Consider this cool cat from Ford's upscale cousin, the 1968 Mercury Cougar XR7. Its look is different, its stance is right and it has more than enough under the hood! You want old school cool? It doesn't get any better.
Of course what really matters is under the hood. Here's the heart of the beast.... the original Big Block 390 cubic inch motor hooked to the original C6 automatic transmission. This Cat has power steering and power disc brakes, which make stopping and turning an absolute cinch.
The super solid rust free body and beautiful dark blue pearl paint are as close to perfection as you can get. The tinted glass and white vinyl top really add to the stunning looks of this Cougar. The trim is in nice shape and is most likely original as few reproduction parts exist for these cars! Clear lenses, a nice grille and chrome pieces show the care taken during the cars life.
Open the door and strap into the nearly all original XR7 interior. A clean console sits between blue vinyl bucket seats. There's wall to wall dark blue in here with clean door panels and an original wood grain dash. Clear gauges, a functional clock, air conditioning and functional interior lights are just some of the highlights of the interior. You will also find a center console up top, between the visors.
Have fun on the street or show up at the show and drive the crowd wild! This big block Ford runs great and has a ton of power. She is sure to please any car collector. Best of all, you will stand out from the sea of Mustangs and Fairlanes like a supermodel at the grocery store. Don't wait on this one! Call Tom Today 248-974-9513
