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.

About Laurel Mountain Mustang from their website in owner
Kevin Mills own words, a true Mustanger! " Laurel Mountain Mustang opened in 1989, but began
with the love of the Mustang when I bought my 1967, 289
Clearwater Aqua Coupe with a black vinyl top. I restored this car, then
bought another, and another, and another, and it snowballed into a
full-time business. We know the Mustangs inside and out and we wish
to help you with your Mustang needs -- from engine, fuel
system, Exhaust systems, heating,
cooling, drivetrain, body, suspension, wheels, brakes, convertible items,
books, stripes, decals, etc."
