1968 Mercury Cougar - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
Cougar... The Man's Car! That's how Mercury was advertising it's top of the line Cougar in the mid-sixties. While sharing commonality with the Mustang, the Cougar has maintained its own aura and identity. Mercury's slogan was, "See your dealer...At the Sign of the Cat". This cougar is highly customized/modified. Another example of individuality expressed through car crafting. http://www.coolcarsvideo.com 1968 Mercury Cougar - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars http://www.cool-cars-video.com cool cars, hot cars, fast cars, dream cars, Cool Cars Video offers a feast for the eyes as well as insight from car enthusiasts about owning these cool street machines. Everybody loves cool cars. Even a person with no particular interest in cars experiences a thrill when seated behind the wheel of a great automobile. The car is one of man's most prolific mechanical inventions and the engineer's desire to build the ultimate automobile is overshadowed only by the layman's desire to own the coolest car. Of course, everyone has different ideas about what makes a car particularly cool. For some it may simply be lots of cup holders or comfortable seats. But those aren't the kind of things you'll be seeing here. This site is about the most important coolness factors: Performance and Styling. Auto enthusiasts share a common interest, but they each have different ideals about performance and styling. We like to make videos that show off cool cars and celebrate the individuality of their owners. Bob's is the only remaining original Big Boy restaurant. Built in 1949, Bob's Big Boy offers a lively dining experience with turn of the century styling and a cool car cruise-in every Friday.

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!





1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 Dan Gurney Special- For Sale - Ebay
1967 Cougar XR7, Dan Gurney Special. I am the 3rd owner of this car. First owner purchased car new in Petersburg, VA. Vehicle was sold in 1990 to second owner eo lives in Mechanicsvile, VA. The second owner was a Ford service mechanic. He replaced the original engine with a freshly rebuilt 5.0 Liter HO engine from a 1987 Mustang. He also installed a 9 inch rear and disc brakes on all four wheels. Installed power adjustable front seats, CD/radio, electric antenna, alarm system, and cruise control as well. All components were replaced in order to make this car a reliable long distance driver. He wanted to be able to drive this car anywhere. Car rides smooth on the the interstate at 75 MPH. Just a solid car all around. Garage kept since 1990. Second owner sold because he lost his license due to his age and car was just not being driven. Car just inspected and has has a valid Virginia November inspection and a clear title. Since purchasing I have replaced the rear shocks, master cylinder, Booster, tires, and wheels. Car has been repainted it's original color Jamaican yellow earlier this year. Engine has approximately 11,000 miles on rebuild. I have the original seats, original radio, original clock, original spare tire, and the Marti report for this car. Everything works except for AC and clock. Told AC needs recharging, we just have not followed up to correct. All lights work (think we may have one light of three missing on the right turn signal, did not catch until we took this video, will fix), vaccum headlights, sequential taillights, gauges, warning lights, etc. This car is a solid driver and fun to drive. Do not find many in this great of shape. Can take this car anywhere. We initially bought car for our son to drive to school but since car has no shoulder belts my wife felt it was a safety issue so we are selling. Welcome to inspect and drive the car. Will not be disappointed. If any questions feel free to call me at 804-314-7492. Ask for Steve.
