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

1968 Cougar 427 GT-E at Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale 2011
This is the story of Brian Aust and his 1968 Mercury Cougar 427 GT-E. Over
the course of about 5 years, he undertook a painstaking restoration to
bring the car to the highest level he could, with a little help from his
friends (and lots of advice from folks on http://www.mercurycougar.net ).
On January 22, 2011, he drove it onto the auction block at Barrett-Jackson,
stepped out, and watched it sell for... well, you'll just have to watch to

Из грязи в князи - Ford Torino 1971
Из грязи в князи - Ford Torino 1971
В 1971 году Ford производит изменение своего
модельного ряда — упраздняются названия
Fairlane и Falcon. Новая линейка Torino теперь
состояла из 14 моделей. Базовой моделью
был Torino в вариациях 2-дверный хардтоп,
4-дверный седан и универсал. Следующим
шёл Torino 500, доступный в качестве
2-дверного хардтопа и SportsRoof, 4-дверного
седана и универсала. На вершине
находился Torino Brougham в разновидностях 2и
4-дверный хардтоп, а Torino Squire являлся
люксовой версией Brougham с кузовом
универсал. Torino GT предлагалась с кузовами
SportsRoof и кабриолет, а Torino Cobra — только
Внешние изменения в 1971 году были
незначительны и в основном коснулись
иного оформления радиаторной решётки за
исключением Cobra, продолжавшей
использовать решётки 1970 года. На Torino 500,
Brougham, универсал Squire и GT могли также
ставиться «скрытые» фары Hideaway.
О фильме: Барри знает, как создавать
масл-кары (мускулистые машины). Но
сколько они будут стоить? Он собирается
выяснить. В каждом эпизоде, Барри с его
командой механиков и семьей, имеют
только четыре недели на работу по
американских авто, для последующей их
продажи на самых известных
автоаукционов северной Америки, а
окупятся ли расходы и останется ли Барри
в прибыли,смотрите сами!
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!

1962 Lincoln and Thunderbird Being Built
A visit to the factory while the 1962 Lincoln Continental (suicide doors)
and the Thunderbird are being built. See the whole process from body
parts being welded together, glass put on, paint applied and the cars
rolling off the line and on to a transport to the dealers. This is how the
middle class was born, making things.

78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

We sold another nice Cougar recently, that one was a resto-mod and we got
$25K for it.. but here is a 1967 Mercury Cougar in fantastic Original Style
condition.. with very nice green mist paint with black vinyl top, wire
wheel covers and a powerful 289 OHV motor with brand new 4 barrel
carburator. The AC blows cold and the interior is also in wonderful near
new condition..the headliner just needs to be tucked in a little in the
back.. and there is just a little surface rust on the rear end and
traction bars, but that is something that can be wire-brushed and painted
black and will look great. The owner is a long time casino dealer here in
Vegas and biz is down, so his precious toy has to go to good home. Really
nice cougars are hard to find and so cool to stand out with something

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.

Win This 1967 GT 390 4-Speed Mercury Cougar!
It's time for us to have another Cougar giveaway contest! Last year we gave
away a 1970 Eliminator, and this year we're giving away a 1967 Mercury
Cougar GT, which originally came with a 390-4V engine and a 4-speed manual
transmission (both of which are now missing). This is definitely a project
car, and the winner will have a lot of work ahead of them. But we couldn't
stand to send this unique car to the crusher, so we decided to give it away
To win the car, you need to write an essay (or make a video if you want)
and submit it to the official contest thread at ClassicCougarCommunity.com
forum is free to join if you aren't already a member.
The purpose of your essay is to convince us and the Cougar community as to
why you are the most deserving and qualified person to bring this car back
to life. Deserving in the sense that this car will actually mean something
to you, and qualified in the sense that you have the skills and resources
to restore a car, or at least the drive to work hard and learn as you go.
The winner will be decided by a panel of 5 judges we've selected. They
represent a wide range of Cougar owners and restorers, with an emphasis on
the first-generation big-block Cougars. When selecting the winning essay,
they will take into account their own experiences as well as the public's
opinion. All of this will take place on the forum.
For more info about the contest, the car, and to submit or read essays,
check out the official contest thread here:
deadline is July 4, 2013.

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 - Mellow Yellow?? - NOT! - HEAR ME ROAR! TOO LATE--I'M GONE!
Here is a super nice 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 with less than 119K miles.
This car has always been an Oregon car. We believe it is also a numbers
matching car and once verified, we will change this ad to reflect that
It still has the original 289 two-barrel, but now has an Edelbrock
Performer intake and Holley 4 barrel and the stock manifolds have new dual
Exhaust with glass packs and H-pipe.
The interior is in quite good shape including the carpets, headliner, dash
and door panels. The seat covers have been replaced to look original with
quality upholstery which we believe to be leather.
All the gauges, dash lights, wipers, sequential turn signals, horn, lights
and as well as all electrical work great. The radio is original AM/FM with
rear speakers. Did you happen to live in a rural area back then and tried
to pull in the rock and roll sounds of a radio station in the city—it's
about the same as then--sporadic. You could leave it stock or put in a
great new stereo. While having been repainted once, it was repainted the
correct original Jamaican Yellow with tasteful black pin stripes and the
body is quite straight.
The glass is all original with the proper date code and all chrome and trim
are there. There are reproduction factory S/S wheels from West Coast
Classic Cougar and good Michelin radials with narrow whitewalls. This car
shows very well and has been in several car shows and cruise-ins. It has
spent most of its life stored inside and was only driven about 4K miles in
the past year.
Recent work and improvements to the car include but are not limited to:
tune up, plugs, wires, filters, and oil, the sequential turn signal module
was replaced with updated solid-state unit, both vacuum canisters for the
hideaway headlights have been replaced (there is a lifetime warranty on
these), various vacuum lines, new Exhaust from crossover back, new ignition
switch, headlight switch, battery, voltage regulator, heavy duty alternator
and the tilt-away steering column was rebuilt with new solenoids. It
starts right up, drives very well, stops straight, shifts crisply and has
made many round trips from Salem to Portland and oh yeah—did we mention
it SOUNDS incredible and is anything but mellow?
