1968 Mercury Cougar LED Taillight Comparison.wmv
This is the final chapter in my quest to find the ultimate LED lights for my 1968 Mercury Cougar. The ones that I'm happy with are part number: 1157-R18-T. They are $18.00 ea., but well worth it, as you can see from the video. Even outside, these bulbs really are bright! I almost considered getting their 45 LED light tower bulb (for $25.00 ea), but now, I'm glad I didn't! The company to get these from, is: www.superbrightleds.com.
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.
Electric Hideaway Headlight Actuator Conversion: 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to replace your early Cougar's vacuum-operated hideaway headlight system with a simpler, more reliable electric conversion kit. This kit includes two remanufactured Ford Probe headlight motors, a custom wiring harness, and custom bracketry and hardware for this specific application, making installation simple. To view the kit, click here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13676-Electric-Headlight-Door-Co nversion-Kit-with-Motors-New-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html Some reasons to go this route instead of keeping your vacuum system: - Easier to keep your grille straight. The vacuum system puts constant pressure on the grille. - Cheaper as a whole. To replace your entire vacuum system is significantly more expensive. - faster and more even opening & closing. No more slow opening / closing one at a time. - Can operate without the engine running. - Perfect solution for those with high performance engines with low vacuum. - Etc.
