Cougar Buying Guide Ep.3 - 1968 XR-7 390 "Barn Find"
In this video, Don goes over a 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 in brutal detail, looking at originality, searching for rust, inspecting the interior and engine bay, and more. This car exhibits a lot of pros and cons that you might run across when looking at buying a classic Cougar yourself. We felt that the "pros" pretty much speak for themselves; it's a very attractive car, great color combination, good options, good condition, and a big block 390 that runs great. With that in mind, we spent most of the video picking on all the little negatives that you might not have noticed otherwise.
