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 289 V8 50xxx Actual Miles
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7.
This beauty only has about 50,xxx original miles and it really looks great.
It's powered by the original 289 V8 and it has been really nicely restored
under the hood. All the power is sent through a C4 automatic to an 8" rear
with 2.73 gears. The interior looks to be all original and extremely well
kept as well. This really is a great car all the way around. Thanks for
checking it out!

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
These are unique and beautiful cars.

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.

Just a little video footage for the 80+ eBay users who have this car on
their WATCHLIST. I would not suggest waiting until the last minute to
place your bid, there are so many of you, you will probably crash the eBay
server. NOTICE: I used a fresh set of tires on Balanced Aluminum racing
Rims to drive to my favorite secluded parking lot for this shoot. These
Rims are not shown and not included in the auction. If you want them, I'll
put them back on the car for you for $500.
