1968 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupe GT 6.5 litre (390 Big Block)
Have had this project for some time now, and don't have the time it deserves to be put into it. This is a very very rare car. Most of the Cougars you may find have the 289 ci V8. This car has the 390 big block -The power is unbelievable. Back in the day, Ford marketed the Mustang "for the man starting out", the Mercury Cougar was marketed as for "the man who was on his way". (The Thunderbird was marketed for "the man who had arrived") Car is unbelievably powerful, pulls rubber in all 3 gears. I have had the car for a long time, started it several times every year. But it is time to let it go to a good home. This is a numbers matching authentic S code 390 Cougar XR7. These are unique and beautiful cars. XR7 Trim Model Tilt Steering AM & 8 Track GT 6.5 Litre Traction Lock rear end (positrac) 390 was rebuilt high performance Hardened C6 transmission. These cars are getting harder and harder to find. Don't miss your chance at owning a rare and unique luxury muscle car. Would trade for a VMAX.
