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.
1978 Mercury Marquis Brougham Cold-Start and Walkaround
CLICK MORE INFO AND COMMENT! I bought this car for a winter driver, but
I'm sure if I take care of the motor it will last longer that that. It
hadn't been on the road in many years, so it ran "interestingly" on the 4
hour ride home. It has a 400 CI and I believe a C6 tranny. I love driving
it, just because it is so damn big, and probably an eye sore to everyone
haha. Many people want to buy it from me to use as a demo car, but I don't
think any of these cars should be used for that...even though it would
probably kick ass...
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

classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,

those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.

chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a

difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.
