Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

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.

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

Turn Signal Cancelling Cam Replacement
If your turn signals don't turn off after you go around a corner and straighten the steering wheel, this cancelling cam is your culprit. Instead of replacing the whole turn signal switch, you can save yourself some money by just replacing the cam. This video hows how to replace the turn signal cancelling cam on a 1969 Mercury Cougar with a tilt / tilt-away steering column. However, this information applies to a wide range of vehicles from the late 1960's through the mid-1980's, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth. The switch we used in this video, plus other related parts we mentioned, can be found here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/tusisw.html





Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

1970 Torino Cobra 429CJ 4-Speed For Sale! (SOLD)
This car has been sold! Video will be left up for posterity, and because it's awesome. eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181246173812 This listing is for my beloved 1970 429 CJ, Ford Torino Cobra with a factory 4-speed transmission. This car is unusual in that it came with manual drum brakes and manual steering. A friend of mine sold me this car just before he passed away several years ago. Max bought the car in the early 80's from the original owner (see documentation) so that makes me the third registered owner. The 429 CJ motor and transmission were completely rebuilt by Alderidge Motor Sports in Portland, OR. As the video attests to and the documentation shows, a top notch job was ordered and it runs out VERY strong. The drive-train has about 30,000 miles on it since the extensive rebuild and would need very little to be rated a 10. It does not have its numbers-matching block anymore, and the carburetor is an aftermarket Holley, incorrect numbered distributor and other minor details need attention or are not correct (see video). It has a VERY solid Western body and some very nice interior parts. Please watch the video for specifics as I go into much further detail there. Feel free to call me at 503-463-1130 if you need further information. I feel this car is worth about $25,000.00, but my reserve is much less than that. We can help with shipping worldwide as I have done it many times over the last 25 years. I will consider trades for 67-73 parts or parts cars. Thank you! Don Rush 503-463-1130





Door Hinge Rebuild - 1969 Cougar
In this video, we show how to rebuild your classic's door hinges with new pins and bushings, with useful tips and tricks throughout the process. In this case, we decided to do it with the door and fender still on the car. Normally, it's a better idea to remove the door, leave the hinges on the car, and rebuild them in place... but Don's car has power windows, so removing the door is much more difficult with the wiring. Check out our door hinge parts at http://cougparts.com
