Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed

Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427 Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally finished in Black. Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship. A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report. Highlights: - One of one Black 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed with A/C - No-expense-spared rotisserie restoration - Concours-quality presentation - Complete documentation includes Marti Report

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

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.

Lot S133 2007 Cadillac XLR-V Mallett Convertible
The new Cadillac XLR was touted as the most exciting Cadillac since the 1967 Eldorado, and was welcomed by the automotive press as a step in the right direction. So when the XLR-V was introduced, it was no surprise that it was met with overwhelming approval. The V option featured a new supercharged version of the 4.4-liter Northstar engine that churned out 443 bhp 414 lb-ft of torque, almost 90 percent of which was available by 2200rpm. This abundance of power put the V in the sub-six-second 60mph club. Mallet Cars soon introduced a Hammer package for the XLR-V that added numerous improvements to an already great car. This is one of five 2007 XLR-V Cadillacs given the Mallet treatment that added approximately $38,000 to the initial $100,000 price tag. Black on Black and with only 680 miles since new, this gorgeous V-Hammer is equipped with all available factory options. Ported and polished heads, modifications to the Supercharger, intake and Exhaust manifolds, a complete Corsa Exhaust system and a computer control upgrade add up to a reliable 550hp. Chassis mods include a lowered suspension, upgraded disc brakes, and Michelin Pilot tires on 20-inch custom alloy wheels. Fast, handsome and comfortable, this is one awesome Cadillac! Highlights: - 2007 Cadillac XLR-V with Mallett Hammer Package - All factory options - Ported and polished heads - Modified Supercharger, intake and Exhaust manifolds - Corsa Exhaust system - Computer control upgrade - 550 horsepower - Lowered suspension - Upgraded brakes - 20" Michelins on custom wheels
