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.

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





Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes, and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible.

Lot S126 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Custom 565 609 HP 6 Speed
This 1971 Chevrolet Camaro is a fine example of a ponycar-based Resto Mod that combines awesome performance, show-quality looks and solid reliability. A well-documented two-owner car with only 54,000 original miles, it was purchased after seventeen years in storage by its third and present owner, who ushered it through an eighteen month nut-and-bolt restoration to its new status as a world-class Pro-Touring Resto Mod of considerable muscle. The engine is a professionally built 565 cubic inch Chevy Dart Big Block generating an estimated 650 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft. of torque. 91-plus octane pump gas feeds through a polished intake to Brodix heads, while a Richmond 6-speed manual and Ford 9" rear end complete the drive train. A Wilwood four-wheel disc and hydro Boost power brake system provide ample braking to bring all that power to heel. Subtle body modifications involving hundreds of hours of work were topped with a Custom Blue Pearle mix and Performance White Pearle stripes then finished with multiple coats of clear. Extensive chrome in the engine compartment and suspension is augmented by the polished stainless steel gas tank. The car rolls on 17" front and 18" rear Foose Nitrous II wheels. The interior features custom black leather seats, power windows, keyless remote locks, factory air conditioning and a complete set of Autometer gauges. Superb sound comes via a state of the art Kenwood AM/FM receiver, multi disc CD player, HD radio receiver, and iPod connection. The extensive work performed by Performance Restorations in Mundelein, Illinois was quickly rewarded: on the two occasions it has been shown, the car has won two "Gold Bow Tie Boulevard" awards, the "Diamond" award for Best of Show First Time Shown Camaro and the "Top Gun" Judges Choice Award for Best Camaro.

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.

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the "record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail than the 'average' Cougar. Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.
