1968 Mercury Cougar Finally back on all 4 new tires!
A video showing my Cougar with the new tires on it, finally off the jack
stands, and on the tires! I got all 4 tires the same size, but it still
looks good! The old tires were way too big on the back, and even smaller
than what is on now, on the front. So, now at least everything is
I also decided to show my other 'old' cars, and what I have to do to them
next, before I start driving them again. My poor Hurst/Olds still has no
engine, or trans. I did make a promise to myself to get that car running
before the car show season starts, so we can take the Cougar, and it to
shows! Hopefully, I can keep my promise!
Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 289 V8 50xxx Actual Miles
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7.
This beauty only has about 50,xxx original miles and it really looks great.
It's powered by the original 289 V8 and it has been really nicely restored
under the hood. All the power is sent through a C4 automatic to an 8" rear
with 2.73 gears. The interior looks to be all original and extremely well
kept as well. This really is a great car all the way around. Thanks for
checking it out!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011
