V8 Interceptor Rear Suspension [S4 Ep.13-1]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls the V8 Interceptor/ Cougar back into the shop
and begins upgrading the rear end and rear suspension to handle all the
massive power that has been stuffed under the hood. The parts are flyin' as
in goes a custom 3-link torque arm suspension, a 9" Ford rear end, and a
tubular sub-frame to prevent the car from flexing. If you have a classic Mustang or Cougar, you're
gonna want to see this! Then Stacey shows you where to get parts for your
Mustang or Cougar project
by paying a visit to a special salvage yard that specializes only in... you
guessed it... Classic Cougars! If you've ever wondered where to get those
special parts... now you know. After that we take a trip to Michigan Tech
to check out their amazing testing facilities and put some actual products
to the test. It's all here... and it's all GEARZ!
The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.
