134523 / 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/orctggo When you take a close look at examples like this 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7 it's hard to understand why the Cougar didn't share the limelight with other pony cars like the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger. This Cougar features incredible styling, a legendary drivetrain, and is heavily optioned. It all starts with the body that sits in a fresh coat of the factory-correct Dark Aqua Metallic paint. Combine that shade of blue with the white touches throughout and you have a stunning ride. According to the Marti Report that is included in the sale, this is 1 of only 46 XR-7's with this paint and trim combination. The beneficiary of a complete nut and bolt restoration, today this Cougar sits as an amazing testament to how incredible these cars were when they rolled off the showroom floor. Pull the hood pins on this ride and you will reveal one of the nicest engine bays we have ever seen. Stuffed into the engine compartment is the original 428 cubic inch Cobra Jet that was rated in 1969 to make 335 horsepower. According to the deluxe Marti report, this engine/transmission combination was only built into 96 XR-7's in 1969. From the transmission the power travels down the driveshaft to a 9" that houses the Traction Lok rear axle. Open the doors to the XR-7 and you'll be greeted by a vibrant white interior that accents the dark aqua blue exterior quite nicely. The FKA coded interior meant white bucket seats with an aqua console, carpet, dash, and steering column. The interior looks just as good if not better than the day it rolled off the showroom floor. To the left of the driver are the power window controls, while in front is the dash that features a gas, speedometer, RPM, oil pressure, and water temperature gauge. Inside and out, this Cougar impresses. Throughout the entire car it seamlessly blends power and performance with luxury and comfort. 1 of only 96 with this driveline combination, this is a truly unique factory car. Don't miss your chance to own this incredible 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!





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.
