92 5.0 HO cougar 0-60
1992 5.0 HO 25th anniversary cougar 0-100 mph. This is a bone stock car.
The cougars from this era were known to have a restrictive Exhaust system as well as a power-leeching smog
pump. I plan on putting a full cat-back Exhaust on it.
Heater Core Replacement - '69 Cougar
In this episode, we tackle one of the most dreaded jobs for classic car
owners: replacing the heater core. On a classic Cougar or Mustang with air conditioning, it's a
very involved process. In this case, we use a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ
convertible as a guinea pig.
Don walks through how to remove the dash pad and lower dash panel, and how
to remove and service the heater box plenum and blower motor assembly.
Along the way, he offers several tips on other jobs you should consider
tackling while you're in the process.
This is a job that we actually recommend you attempt yourself, rather than
taking your car to a shop. Not only will you save money, but you will
probably be a lot more careful than the average mechanic, and will avoid
breaking expensive / irreplaceable parts. The fiberglass heater box itself
is very fragile and valuable, and most of the plastic clips for the wiring
harness are not reproduced.

My 1993 Mercury Cougar
This is my 1993 Mercury Cougar XR7 Special edition. It currently has about
68,900 miles on it. It has the 3.8 liter V6 which is alright even though I
wish it had the 5.0. This car drives like no other it rides great as well.
So far I have put on new brakes, rebuilt the valve body in the
transmission, changed the oil and cleaned it. I will buff and wax it later
as well as change the anti-freeze, put on touchup paint, and fix the little
bit of rust on the drivers side rocker panel. It has a Kenwood headunit
with an MP3 hookup as well as my Harbor Freight airhorn.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Spooky, 1992 Mercury Cougar
1992 Mercury Cougar. Took me one year to build. I had a Gold 1997 Cougar
with a 4.6 V8 and a Silver 1992 Cougar with a 3.8 V6. I blew up the V6 and
wrecked the V8 so I put them together, painted it black and named it
"SPQQKY". Here's a video of the process. I DRIVE IT EVERYDAY!
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.
