Electric Hideaway Headlight Actuator Conversion: 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to replace your early Cougar's vacuum-operated
hideaway headlight system with a simpler, more reliable electric conversion
kit. This kit includes two remanufactured Ford Probe headlight motors, a
custom wiring harness, and custom bracketry and hardware for this specific
application, making installation simple.
To view the kit, click here:
Some reasons to go this route instead of keeping your vacuum system:
- Easier to keep your grille straight. The vacuum system puts constant
pressure on the grille.
- Cheaper as a whole. To replace your entire vacuum system is significantly
- faster and more even opening &
closing. No more slow opening / closing one at a time.
- Can operate without the engine running.
- Perfect solution for those with high performance engines with low vacuum.

Burnout by One Wicked 1968 Mercury Cougar
We went to a charity rod run in Wright City, MO about a week ago and this
menacing looking Mercury Cougar was rolling around. It's completely
blacked out and I believe I smelled some race gas as it rolled past. He
decided to bring it out to the burnout pit, just to give people a little
taste of the power lurking under that hood. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for taking a look!
