1967 Mercury Cougar XR7
A 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. 302 V8, C4, Aluminum Heads, Roller Rockers, Roller Cam, 4V, AC, PS, PB. Restoration was completed in 2006. Originally purchased in Ontario California. Purchased from Weber & Cooper Lincoln/Mercury in late 1967. I purchased the car in 1988 and drove it for a few years. Full restoration started in 1994. Now it isa weekend and summer day recreational driver. This video was taken using a digital still camera so the quality is not as good as I had hoped for.
COUGAR TEST DRIVE
badassness. this is my 67 cougar xr7. it has a rebuilt 289 .30 over. pretty hot mild cam. 500cfm edelbrock carb. aluminum ford racing intake. rebuilt c4 automatic transmission. turboExhaust made by summit. hedman headers. its running a little rich in this video my step dad says. this is my first car and so far all i learned from cars is from building this beast so i have no clue what running rich sounds like haha. but i know this things kicks pretty hard. havent got a chance to really open her up yet because i still need to break in the motor. theres less than 50 miles on the rebuilt motor and transmission. all the front suspension is done and steering parts are on their way and will be done. found a crack in the shock tower i will need to get welded before alignment but thats not too big of a problem. more videos to come.
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.
