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.

135847 / 1950 Mercury Coupe
http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/sales/inventory/active/1950%20Mercury%20Co upe/135847 Dressing a modern small block and four forward gears in a razor-sharp restoration, this sophisticated Mercury Eight is more than just sweet eye candy. And if you’re the kind of buyer who’s searching for a stunning, all-steel hot rod, we can’t think of anything that offers more style for less money! Storming the scene just a few short years ago, this slick street rod has been lovingly finessed to the absolute highest standards. The smooth surfaces that make up the car’s voluptuous profile are comprised of clean Henry Ford steel that’s been completely stripped, carefully aligned and laboriously block-sanded. That solid shell, dressed in PPG gold base, basted in PPG Cinnamon Candy and sealed in PPG clear, has been buffed to a wet-looking shine. And today, this Merc rolls as one excellent-looking custom that’s completely devoid of filler, questionable seams, strange bulges or anything else that might demerit its otherwise superior construction. Lift the car’s domed hood and you’ll find 5.7 liters of spry LS1 small block that, produced in 1998, creates upwards of 305 horsepower. Behind that mill, a GM 4L60E 4-speed jerks a familiar Ford 8-inch axle. That drivetrain rolls in classic Ford skeleton that’s been augmented with a quality Fat Man front-clip. That clip frames Unisteer power rack-and-pinion steering. Power front disc and rear drum brakes provide predictably solid stops. And, at the corners of the car, 15-inch Billet Specialties wheels twist 225/75 Dean Alpha 365 whitewalls. This lights-out Mercury is one of the coolest cruisers on the planet!
