Cold Start of a 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7. This car has been sitting for about 2 years so it gets a little smokey. Engine stalls at the end because the choke was left on.

1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 WITH BURNOUT
Just a little video footage for the 80+ eBay users who have this car on their WATCHLIST. I would not suggest waiting until the last minute to place your bid, there are so many of you, you will probably crash the eBay server. NOTICE: I used a fresh set of tires on Balanced Aluminum racing Rims to drive to my favorite secluded parking lot for this shoot. These Rims are not shown and not included in the auction. If you want them, I'll put them back on the car for you for $500.

1967 Mercury Cougar - Dan Gurney Special - SOLD
This '67 Cougar DGS is a very nice example of a solid, un-messed-with, standard first-gen Cougar. Low mileage, no rust, and sporting its original interior. Cars like this are getting harder and harder to find! Car has been sold! eBay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181641420851





1969 Mercury Couger XR7 351 Windsor
Can't remember this fella's name...It isn't mine. Even though the owner admitted the car isn't in show stopper condition...yet, he was the ONLY Cougar on the lot at the show. And that's why I like the car. At 42 yrs old, there are some occasional electrical gremlins (not affiliated with AMC) that bedevil the owner. But, we all must persevere through the aggrevation. My Comet certainly has its issues. It's a 351 Windsor, C-6 w/9inch rear. Taken at Abingdon, MD Lowes in September 2011.





SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior. If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe. The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's. Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted your Merc to stand out in a crowd! And the sled being offered here does that in spades! Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser. The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched", hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom without Appleton spots! The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a '57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal! It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A





first start of the 1967 cougar
After just a *few* attempts (and replacing the fuel pump), the 289 2 barrel cougar finally starts for us at the 24 second mark. (followed by fuel leaking out of the top and bottom engine just after this ended.....but hey, at least it started!) Background noise is the Volvo, acting as a battery charger, as the cougar's battery is DEAD. Unfortunately, another fuel pump is now required as it was cross-threaded.....)
