67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Ford Elite 1974-1976 (Luxury in HD)
Here is a Facebook Elite's group for anyone who wants to join..
This classic car is one of the largest two doors coupe ever made with
almost 19 feet long. This video shows 1974 Gran Torino Elite and 1975 1976
Elite. In '75, the word Elite became a brand on its own. These giant
personal luxury cars were once sailing highways and now became relics of a
past where size mixed with style was a must. This bodystyle was the same
one as the Mercury Cougar and the Thunderbird of the same year. The only
difference was the front end and the shape of the opera window. This model
was mainly competing against the Chevrolet Monte Carlo of its time.

Mercury Cougar XR7 1974 Belém - Pará - By SnoopyAmigoFiel
Amigos reunidos em praça pública em Belém exibem seus belos carros de
uma saudosa época, esse especialmente trata-se de um Mercury 1974, cujo o
número da placa já é o seu indicativo de idade. 37 anos, mas olhando de
perto ou até mesmo de longe sua aparência não revela a idade que tem,
pois o estado de conservação é impecável.

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
2001 Mercury Cougar V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2001 Mercury Cougar V6. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
1974 Cougar XR7 Car Used in Commercials
Perhaps you remember those ads on TV featuring a beautiful model, with a
cougar resting on the top of the car! This is the car! Evidently it
toured the country, and got autographs of famous people in Hollywood and
conservation. The authenticity of those signatures is not guaranteed, but
it is still a very strange and significant display. The idea of a live,
wild animal in a commercial seems beyond the pale, at least in retrospect!
The car is cool, though..and it survived a wild beast!
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. Visit him
at http://www.martiauto.com , and for everything Cougar, visit us at
