1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible
• Beautiful Blue & White Convertible!
• Incredible Two Tone Interior!
• 351ci V8!
• Automatic Transmission!
Mercury Cougar is the name applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold
by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company from 1967 to 2002. As was
common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford
models. Originally, this was the Mustang, later the Thunderbird, and
the last a version of the Contour. The Cougar was important to Mercury's
image for many years, and advertising often identified its dealers as being
"at the sign of the cat." Female models holding big cats on leashes were
used on Cougar ads in the early 1970s.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer the handsome 1972 Mercury
Cougar XR7 Convertible. The '72 Cougar XR-7 you see today is said to be a
93,931 original mile car that is finished in the original color combination
of Bright Blue Metallic with White/Blue interior. The paint looks very good
and shows no major spots of imperfections, just a few minor spots of touch
up. The power white convertible top is equally as nice with no staining,
rips or tears to the vinyl. The rear window is glass.
Inside, the White/ Blue vinyl interior is the original for the car and in
great condition. The carpet appears to have been replaced recently and is
in great condition. The dash, door panels, arm rest and wood grain trim are
all equally as nice with on major wear showing.
Under the hood, the 351 cubic inch V8 runs great and starts with a turn of
the key. The motor is said to be the original for the car and still retains
its original 2 barrel carburetor, power steering, power disc brakes and air
conditioning. The air conditioning is currently inoperable but it appears
to only be in need of a charge. The engine is nicely detailed and very
original. No damage to be found. The motor is connected to the three speed
automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and performs with no problems.
Under the car is very solid with no rot that we have seen. It appears to be
all original metal under this original southern car. The VIN is 2F94H517485
and the mileage currently shows 93,931, which is believed to be original
for the car. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND

Ready for a different kind of pony car? Take a close look at this pristine
1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. Fresh out of a comprehensive restoration,
this cat has and aggressive demeanor and plenty of power to back it up.
Restored to factory specifications, the body panels are straight in true in
every way. A coat of Ford's code N Pastel Blue covers the body, accented by
the black body-length stripes courtesy of the Eliminator package. While the
color may look white, there is a subtle blue tint that is guaranteed to
make this Mercury stand out in the crowd. Panel fitment is also far
superior to anything that left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1970.
Other pieces of the Eliminator package include a front chin spoiler,
blacked-out grilled, hood scoop, an air foil wing and discrete "Eliminator"
decals. The glass appears to be original as does the stainless trim around
it but both are in excellent condition overall. With its race-friendly
look, this is very clearly no common Cougar.
Under the hood, a familiar 290hp Boss 302 V8 provides more than enough
motivation to push this cat around town. From the properly decaled single
snorkel air cleaner to the date-code correct block, everything about the
powerplant looks as it did when it left the factory. The engine fires
immediately, idles well and has a menacing snarl to warn other drivers
exactly what is beside.
Beneath the car, a nicely detailed undercarriage consists of a factory
chassis with factory-correct overspray gracing the rock solid floor fans.
In the center, a Hurst-equipped Toploader 4-speed takes care of gear
selection while a nodular Ford nine-inch differential with 3.91 gears puts
the power the road. Steering is manual but braking is power assisted with
discs in the front and drums out back. The chassis meets the road through
Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around steel wheels topped with dog-dish
hubcaps and chrome beauty rings.
Between the doors, a Medium Blue interior is simple, comfortable and
functional. The hi-back bucket seats are wrapped in Comfortweave vinyl and
face a factory dashboard that houses the original instrumentation plus
climate controls and an AM/FM stereo. With the exception of the aluminum
Hurst shift handle, there are no frills to be found here. Behind the rear
seat, the trunk features a correct mat, jack and spare tire.
Documentation for this Cougar is strong with an original build sheet,
dealer invoice and several records that spell out the car's full history.
There is also a Marti Report that covers everything down to production
In this form, it's easy to imagine the Cougar as less of a sibling and more
of a rival to the Mustang.
With the Boss 302 and slick shifting Toploader, this cat offers all the fun
in a unique shell. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for
