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.

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.

2013 Gathering of the Classic Cougar Faithful at Bill Basore's House in AZ - "Live" Footage
Saturday, 1/19/13 - For those who couldn't be here, this is a quick, sloppy, informal video to give you a taste of what it's like to party at Bill Basore's house, and to put some faces to the names you may be familiar with from the Classic Cougar Community Forums ( http://www.classiccougarcommunity.com ) and elsewhere in Cougar legend. Just walking around with the camera talking to people and looking at cars briefly. Nothing fancy!





Door Panel Backer Boards - How To Replace (1967-1970 Cougar)
Since door panels aren't reproduced for Cougars, good used originals are valuable. Sometimes, the front vinyl side is usable, but the backer boards are toast. Luckily, there's a solution. We now carry brand new, better-than-stock backer boards made from a more durable pressboard material. We have a version for 1967-1968 Cougars, as well as another version for 1969-1970 Cougars. See links below. In this video, we show you how to separate a vinyl door panel from its old backer board, repair the metal hanger piece, and reattach it and the vinyl to the new backer board. We also cover removal & replacement of the inner beltline strip (the felt-lined trim that touches the door glass).

However, this information applies to a wide range of vehicles from the late 1960's through the mid-1980's, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth.

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 Dan Gurney Special- For Sale - Ebay
1967 Cougar XR7, Dan Gurney Special. I am the 3rd owner of this car. First owner purchased car new in Petersburg, VA. Vehicle was sold in 1990 to second owner eo lives in Mechanicsvile, VA. The second owner was a Ford service mechanic. He replaced the original engine with a freshly rebuilt 5.0 Liter HO engine from a 1987 Mustang. He also installed a 9 inch rear and disc brakes on all four wheels. Installed power adjustable front seats, CD/radio, electric antenna, alarm system, and cruise control as well. All components were replaced in order to make this car a reliable long distance driver. He wanted to be able to drive this car anywhere. Car rides smooth on the the interstate at 75 MPH. Just a solid car all around. Garage kept since 1990. Second owner sold because he lost his license due to his age and car was just not being driven. Car just inspected and has has a valid Virginia November inspection and a clear title. Since purchasing I have replaced the rear shocks, master cylinder, Booster, tires, and wheels. Car has been repainted it's original color Jamaican yellow earlier this year. Engine has approximately 11,000 miles on rebuild. I have the original seats, original radio, original clock, original spare tire, and the Marti report for this car. Everything works except for AC and clock. Told AC needs recharging, we just have not followed up to correct. All lights work (think we may have one light of three missing on the right turn signal, did not catch until we took this video, will fix), vaccum headlights, sequential taillights, gauges, warning lights, etc. This car is a solid driver and fun to drive. Do not find many in this great of shape. Can take this car anywhere. We initially bought car for our son to drive to school but since car has no shoulder belts my wife felt it was a safety issue so we are selling. Welcome to inspect and drive the car. Will not be disappointed. If any questions feel free to call me at 804-314-7492. Ask for Steve.





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.

Two '67 Cougars in Paris
This spring, our photo / video guy Andrew was on vacation in Europe and met up with some classic Cougar owners in France. It was quite an experience to drive through Paris with two '67 Cougars. It's a shame (dommage) that the weather wasn't nicer, but it was a great day nonetheless. Special thanks to Jean Compain and Claude Etchegorry for their time and generosity.
