73 Cougar getting exercise
I've pulled the interior and vinyl top. I'll be replacing the sheetmetal. Everything mechanical is perfect, so it still needs its weekly exercise.

1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 - Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis - #6213
#6213 For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a 1973 Mercury Cougar convertible XR7. This classic convertible is powered by the original 351 CID V8 backed by a 3-spd automatic transmission. This was one of the the most sought after options in 1973. The exterior is painted a strong silver while the interior is comprised of black leather bucket seats that are stamped with the Cougar emblem. The silver exterior offers black pin stripping on the fenders, doors and hood. The dash pad is in great shape and is free of cracking. Looking downward you'll see rally wheels rapped in radial tires with white lettering. The large chrome bumpers are in nice shape and in 1973 the Cougar was equipped with safety bumper guards. Options include: AM/FM radio, cassette, automatic convertible top, power steering, power seats, power windows, seat belts, and leather interior. The odometer shows 20,274 miles; we are assuming it is 120,274 actual miles but the miles are undocumented. 1973 was the last year for the second generation body style. The styling was quite good looking. The front of the car had dual round headlights and the body lines flowed freely down the side of the car and lifted up the rear quarter panels. This effect made the car look very aerodynamic. If you are looking for a nice, solid, classic Cougar to show off, here is a good one.

1973 Mercury Cougar XR7
Too bad the hood isn't up, but you can see it had been raining! Nice combination of light blue body color with black vinyl top. This had been the original color of my 72 Mustang Grande! My guess is that it has a 351 c.i. engine with automatic.
