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

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.

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?
