The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.

1969 Glue-In Glass: The Comprehensive Repair Guide
1969 and the first part of 1970 was an epic fail for Ford on all its
intermediate line. Gluing the glass in instead of bolting it in was one of
many cost cutting measures, and it just did not go well. In this
comprehensive video Don shows us how to service just about every piece
front and rear on a 1969 Cougar. Don also shows the many differences 1969
vs early 1970 and late 1970. Keep in mind all the tips shown here directly
apply to a 69-70 Mustang
Coupe or convertible; many will also apply to the 69-70 Fastback. Even if
you choose not to do the repairs shown here yourself the information is
invaluable and you should insist on having your tech review this video
before proceeding on your car.
