How To Replace 1967 Cougar Steeing Wheel Emblem & Trim

The 1967 Mercury Cougar has a unique steering wheel with a black "Cougar" emblem in the center. Originals are often damaged from the elements over the years, but luckily we now have nice reproduction emblems to replace them. Same with the plastic chrome trim ring - they are often faded, but a nice reproduction is available. In this video, Don shows how to remove the old emblem and trim ring and install new ones on your original 1967 steering wheel center / horn pad.

Vinyl Woodgrain Installation - 1968 Cougar XR7 Steering Wheel Center
WCCC is now producing vinyl woodgrain overlay kits for classic Mercury Cougars! We've sourced a high quality material that closely matches the texture, color and pattern of the original burled walnut woodgrain, found primarily on 1969-1970 Cougar XR7's. Today we show you how to install our overlay onto a 1968 XR7 steering wheel center piece. This also applies to other Ford / Mercury / Lincoln vehicles for 1968. Although the woodgrain we're using is different from the original pattern used in 67-68, we think it looks pretty good. We will also be producing kits for the entire dash face, door pull strap end pieces, overhead console light bars, floor console inserts, and anything else on a classic Cougar that had woodgrain on it. More how-to videos coming soon!

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.

Installing Opera Lights on any 67-68 Cougar
If you own a standard 1967 or 1968 Mercury Cougar, you may have noticed (with some envy) that the upscale XR-7's of those years have extra interior lighting on the C-pillars. These are referred to as rear courtesy lights, or opera lights. We have just reproduced the chrome / clear lenses for these, which add an extra touch of class and functionality to your interior. They are especially useful because Cougars didn't come with an interior dome light, so nighttime visibility is somewhat limited on the interior of a standard Cougar. The good news is - even if your car never came with these lights from the factory, your car already has the wiring for them. All you have to do is cut the tape holding the single wire to the harness and feed it through the appropriate hole (see video). So all you will need is a pair of used housings and a pair of our new lenses. Links to parts below. Used housings: New lenses: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/l4e9.html OR we also have used original lenses, which are cheaper but not as nice.. Used lenses - Grade A: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/cpilllens.html Used lenses - Grade B: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/cpillb.html Thanks for watching / reading!

Rear View Mirror Lens Replacement - Classic Cougar, Mustang, etc
After 40+ years, the rear view mirror on your classic Cougar or Mustang is probably looking pretty tired. The silver gets tarnished, and the only way to bring it back to life is to either buy a new repro mirror, or to remove your original mirror lens, have it re-silvered, and install it back into the original holder. Luckily, we're offering an exchange-based mirror restoration service at West Coast Classic Cougar. You can send us your old lens, and get a restored one back for around $50. Keep in mind that any imperfections on the glass surface will remain, because the silver is applied to the back side of the lens. If you'd rather not go through the process of removing and re-installing your lens, or if yours is missing, broken, or in bad shape, we also sell a Grade "A" original mirror assembly with a re-silvered lens already installed. We have all styles of mirrors from 1967-1973 for the Mercury Cougar, most of which are interchangeable with other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. Check out the interior mirror section on our website for more info: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/usedparts.html While you're at it, check us out on Facebook too! http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar Last but not least, be sure to subscribe to our channel for more classic Cougar videos.

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.

Passenger Side Mirror Installation: 67-68 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to install a passenger side door mirror on a first-generation Mercury Cougar. These cars never came with a right-hand mirror, but now there is a high-quality, original-looking chrome mirror and base available that looks just like the left side. Drilling the holes in the door is pretty straightforward, but there are some different ways to attach the mirror base to the body. The best method for permanent installation, in our opinion, is to use the OEM-style aluminum riv-nuts. In the video, we show 2 different ways to install these.
