67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
1970 Mercury Cougar convertible for sale
You are looking at a lovely example of a classic Mercury Cougar
convertible, finished in dark red the original colour, with red interior,
a very solid rust free California car since new, still wears the original
blue and yellow california license plates. I purchased this car last year
from the estate of the original owner, who sadly passed away.
The car has 351 V8 2bbl with automatic, and has had an Vintage Air air
conditioning system professionally installed at a cost of nearly $3500, its
a really nice installation, and will freeze your ta tas off!
I have put new brake pads, calipers, master cylinder and Booster. New KYB shocks front and rear, and a
brand new custom made dual Exhaust
system that is nice and subtle that will not upset your neighbours on a
Sunday morning!! The ignition switch was replaced, and all the belts and
hoses have been recently replaced, along with Platinum spark plugs, new
I also added a Petronix ignition system and Flamethrower coil to make the
car a reliable everyday driver. The electric windows have been rebuilt and
the car has a power top with new cylinders and hoses, the top is in
excellent condition with a glass rear window, the parade boot is also
present. I have over $15k in receipts !!
The interior is exceptionally nice, carpet is like new, the seats are
excellent, and the dash pad is perfect, not warped or cracked, an Alpine AM
FM Cd player has been installed with upgraded speakers behind stock looking
door speaker grilles
This convertible body style was only made for 1969 and 1970, so they are
pretty rare, only 2322 convertibles were made in 1970 !! So there cannot be
too many left. The Mercury shares many of the mechanical items such as
suspension, brakes, etc with the ubiquitous Mustang,
The car runs and drives very well, and needs nothing but a driver, the
transmission shifts well, car brakes perfectly, and the top, windows,
wipers, and lights all work.
The car is sold completely as is, no warranty expressed or implied, this is
a 42 year old car, its not perfect, but its very nice. Please ask
questions, I strongly encourage inspections, the car is titled in my name,
no liens, with a clear California title, and the car is currently
registered and insured. The car is located in Los Angeles, I can arrange
shipping overseas or nationwide at your cost.
Please have your finances in order before you look at the car. If you have
to ask your wife, bank manager, cat or dog, please move on !! And don't
bid, if you have a less than perfect feedback rating or lower than 5 please
contact me before bidding. Thanks for looking. :) I have tried to be
honest and accurate in my descriptions, but descriptions are open to
interpretation, so please ask specific questions. Car is for sale locally
so I reserve to end the auction early, so if you want to buy the car give
me a call and lets do a deal.
