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
at http://www.martiauto.com , and for everything Cougar, visit us at

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
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?

vehicles are offered subject to an inspection and an appraisal if desired.
