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.

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

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
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!

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. Visit him

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.
