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

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an
often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were
sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things
interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the
far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was
rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to
drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several
rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!

Heater Core Replacement - '69 Cougar
In this episode, we tackle one of the most dreaded jobs for classic car
owners: replacing the heater core. On a classic Cougar or Mustang with air conditioning, it's a
very involved process. In this case, we use a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ
convertible as a guinea pig.
Don walks through how to remove the dash pad and lower dash panel, and how
to remove and service the heater box plenum and blower motor assembly.
Along the way, he offers several tips on other jobs you should consider
tackling while you're in the process.
This is a job that we actually recommend you attempt yourself, rather than
taking your car to a shop. Not only will you save money, but you will
probably be a lot more careful than the average mechanic, and will avoid
breaking expensive / irreplaceable parts. The fiberglass heater box itself
is very fragile and valuable, and most of the plastic clips for the wiring
harness are not reproduced.
