1968 Mercury Cougar XR7-G
This is my Mercury Cougar XR7-G that I've owned since 1981. This video was shot August 12 of this year. What small parts are obviously missing are the roof badges, fog lamps, hood clips with cable (pins are still there), and the chrome trim pieces around the Exhaust cutouts. This car is an authentic "G" Cougar as verified by the Cougar Club of America Registry and the door plate's VIN number. This Cougar has the original engine (with engine tag) and has never been opened. The original Autolite carburetor, however, became un-rebuildable due to age and was replaced with an excellent Holly 650 cfm carburetor which runs much better and reliably. This car has an original factory installed sunroof (missing cables) by American Sunroof Corporation (ASC) and factory tilt-away steering wheel. It has an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and a/c (which does not work). The Cougar also has the original style-steel wheels with a 5th style-steel wheel in the trunk. All of the interior "G" options remain on the inside of the car: wood shift knob, unique console with "fog" and "sunroof" switches and rally clock, dash "Cougar XR&-G" plate, and bullet-shaped driver's side mirror as seen in the video. The 3rd extra loud horn is still intact, too. Many thanks to Royce with the Cougar Club of America for his valuable insight. Thanks!





1969 Mercury Cougar advert
Mercury Cougar is the name applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by the Mercury brand of Ford Motor Company's Lincoln-Mercury Division from 1967 to 2002. As was common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford models. Originally, this was the Mustang, later the Thunderbird, and the last a version of the Contour/Mondeo. The Cougar was important to Mercury's image for many years, and advertising often identified its dealers as being "at the sign of the cat." Female models holding big cats on leashes were used on Cougar ads in the early 1970s. The car was assembled at the Dearborn Assembly Plant (DAP) (one of six plants within the Ford Rouge Center) in Dearborn, Michigan from 1967 to 1973, at the San Jose Assembly Plant in Milpitas, California from 1968 into early 1969 and at the Lorain Assembly Plant (LAP) in Lorain, Ohio from 1974 to 1997.
