Cougar Buying Guide Ep.1 - 1970 XR-7 Convertible 428 CJ
Having recently bought a 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible with a 428 Cobra Jet, Don started going over the car with a fine-toothed comb and discovered a few things he didn't notice when he first inspected the car with the seller. This was the inspiration for this video, in which we spend some time looking at some of the details, like a forensics team, to find out some important details about this car (both good and bad). This time, we don't spend any time looking at matching numbers and date codes and engine "correctness" (sharp-eyed viewers will notice the incorrect oil pan... the engine block in this car turned out to be a 390 that was bored out and had the Cobra Jet heads and manifolds bolted on). Our main focus here is to evaluate structural integrity and bodywork. When it comes to expensive and involved repairs, it doesn't get much worse than bodywork, so you want to make sure the car you're looking at is as straight and rust-free as possible. We hope this video proves helpful! Keep these hints in mind the next time you go to look at a classic car, Cougar convertible or otherwise. Some of the info here is specific to Cougars, but much of it applies to other classic cars as well. Looking for Cougar parts? We have everything 1967-1973.

1970 Mercury Cougar Convertible 351 Windsor V8 - Nicely Restored
I thought you'd like a look at this very slick 1970 Mercury Cougar Convertible. This one is powered by a high performance 351 Windsor V8, equipped with a Holley 4 BBL carb, Edelbrock aluminum intake and a set of coated headers. The metallic blue paint is slick, the hideaway headlights work as they should, and it even has the sequential turn signals. The interior is in black vinyl and really looks great too. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010
