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.

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 and Plymouth.

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!

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.
