Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
1975 MERCURY COUGAR XR7 -- MORE PLUSH THAN THE THUNDERBIRD
Now here's a keeper. This factory-new conditioned Cougar XR7 finished in
Bronze Gold Diamond Fire paint is the only Cougar model produced this year
and only in hardtop form. The XR7 was meant to be an upgrade from the
personal luxury car Thunderbird and it was. The XR7 was powered by a by a
V8, 351 cid / 148 - 150 hp. engine. Though the T-Bird had a V8, 460 cid /
194 hp., by far a larger engine, the Cougar offered a plush interior. Most
likely this trend was to keep the loyal Cougar fans on board. I supposed
it worked, for Cougars outsold T-Bird by ten thousand units this year with
a total of 62,987. The XR7 had a suggested retail price of $5,218. I
think this XR7 example is clean and like new and noticed all of the
enrichment of it's looks both outside and inside. I always admired those
vinyl landau roofs and opera windows. It's truly a beautiful Merc. Thanks
very much for viewing this 1975 Cougar XR7.
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.

I've pulled the interior and vinyl top. I'll be replacing the sheetmetal.
Everything mechanical is perfect, so it still needs its weekly exercise.
Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.
