Cumberland MD 8-18-07 Autocross, 1969 Cougar
Decided to run my 1969 Mercury Cougar in a local autocross. Street tires,
factory M code 351W, FMX trans and Flowmasters. Won CSP that day. (Only car
in the class, so not too hard)
1970 Cougar Street Driven 10 Second Drag Car
This is HotRodMercs/ Tony Barnes 1970 Cougar. It is a real street car and
runs mid to low 10s. Big Block 460, but this thing weighs 3600 pounds and
runs on 10 inch DOT drag tires. This was last year at Mason Dixon Dragway.

Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed
Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427
Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than
performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which
earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A
genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar
is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra
Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line
power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally
finished in Black.
Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared
restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and
brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the
unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that
comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship.
A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable
car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report.
