1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT DAY 1 (August 29, 2009)





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 fact. 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? Vehicle information above is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. All vehicles are offered subject to an inspection and an appraisal if desired. Financing is available through JJ Best Banc. Delivery arrangements are available. For ore information, please call 503-855-345 of 1-888-597-6719.





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.
