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.

eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181246173812
This listing is for my beloved 1970 429 CJ, Ford Torino Cobra with a
factory 4-speed transmission. This car is unusual in that it came with
manual drum brakes and manual steering. A friend of mine sold me this car
just before he passed away several years ago. Max bought the car in the
early 80's from the original owner (see documentation) so that makes me the
third registered owner. The 429 CJ motor and transmission were completely
rebuilt by Alderidge Motor Sports in Portland, OR. As the video attests to
and the documentation shows, a top notch job was ordered and it runs out
VERY strong. The drive-train has about 30,000 miles on it since the
extensive rebuild and would need very little to be rated a 10. It does not
have its numbers-matching block anymore, and the carburetor is an
aftermarket Holley, incorrect numbered distributor and other minor details
need attention or are not correct (see video). It has a VERY solid Western
body and some very nice interior parts. Please watch the video for
specifics as I go into much further detail there. Feel free to call me at
503-463-1130 if you need further information. I feel this car is worth
about $25,000.00, but my reserve is much less than that. We can help with
shipping worldwide as I have done it many times over the last 25 years. I
will consider trades for 67-73 parts or parts cars. Thank you! Don Rush
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.

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.
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

Turn Signal Cancelling Cam Replacement
If your turn signals don't turn off after you go around a corner and
straighten the steering wheel, this cancelling cam is your culprit. Instead
of replacing the whole turn signal switch, you can save yourself some money
by just replacing the cam.
This video hows how to replace the turn signal cancelling cam on a 1969
Mercury Cougar with a tilt / tilt-away steering column. 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

sloppy, informal video to give you a taste of what it's like to party at

briefly. Nothing fancy!
