68 Mercury Cougar Shock Tower Brace Modification To Fit
10th part of the Mercury Cougar restoration. Here the finished suspension is looked at and the after market shock tower brace is modified to fit the car. The painted engine bay and installed engine can also be seen. As always, thanks for watching and comments are welcome. There was some feedback on this video about the shock towers sagging inwards on these cars. The original braces fit ok and dropped into place. These are old cars and anything can happen, but original fits are something to be considered.





The 1968 Cougar Lives!
The 1968 Mercury Cougar finally starts, runs and moves on its own power. Vacuum advance is briefly discussed at the end of the video.





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.

The V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep.11-1]
One of the most popular cars of the Muscle car era... the Mercury Cougar... has been one of the most overlooked cars in recent decades. Today on GEARZ all of that changes as Stacey rolls in a solid '67 Cougar... dubs it the "V8 Interceptor"... and begins to completely change the front suspension to get rid of the stock shock towers and turn this little old lady's car into a corner-carving, road-gripping beast. But wait!... you can't cut out the shock towers can you!?! Yes you can!... and Stacey goes in-depth on not only how to do it, but also the installation of a complete TCI independent front suspension. If you own or want to own a classic Mustang, Cougar, Fairlane, or other 60's Ford, and have always wished you could get rid of those stock shock towers to get more room in the engine compartment, this is the show for you.

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
http://www.cjponyparts.com/1964-1973-Mustang-suspension/c/10170000/ In this installation video, Bill demonstrates how to upgrade a front suspension in CJ's 1965 Forgotten Fastback project car. Before the upgrade, the Forgotten Fastback's suspension was beyond poor, with two 4x4s for springs and several loose parts. In order to make the Fastback a Mustang with modern updates, we've decided to install a stock-style suspension with a few performance upgrades, which will provide a better handling experience. For springs, upper and lower control arms, and a strut rod kit, we've chosen top-quality products from Scott Drake. Mustang Scott Drake Coil Springs 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-coil-spring-progressive-rate-pair-19 65-1966/p/CSPR1/ These springs allow your Classic Mustang to take advantage of the latest suspension technology and perform more like a modern sports car. They provide a fairly stock smooth ride during normal driving, but as the springs compress under load (primarily during braking and cornering) they progressively become firmer to offer the handling characteristics similar to our 600 pound performance springs. Mustang Scott Drake Lower Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-lower-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/LCA71/ These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and natural steel gray and come with a ball joint, grease seal, a washer and nut and a cotter key. Mustang Scott Drake Upper Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-upper-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/UCA3/ These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not rebuilt, but rather all new. They're painted black and natural steel gray, come ready to install, and include the bushings, ball joint, but with cotter key and washers with locking nuts.
