Zoe - West Coast Classic Cougar Request
My daughter Zoe is trying to receive a 1967 Mercury Cougar GT 4 Speed Car
from West Coast Classi Cougars in Oregon. This is her Video submission.
Please West Coast Classic Cougar help my dauger with her dream of owning a
Myself I still own my 67 Mercury Cougar that I built in high school (zoe
is going to the same school). My wife still has her 1968 Mercury Cougar
xr7 Gt which was her first car. We are all Members of the Mercury
StrayCat's Cougar Club. My wife and myself were a couple of the founding
members. I think Zoe would be a good fit to restore the 1967 Mercury
Cougar Gt and keep it for years to come. One thing I am not seeing often
is younger people restoring the old cars. If young kids do not keep up the
hobby who will?? Lord Lucas and his Leadfoot Ladies will. Please let West
Coast Classic Cougars know that you also want to see a young girl (who by
the way does already drive a manual transmission) restore and keep another
Mercury Cougar Alive !!!

Cougar owners to get their thoughts.

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.

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.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an
often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were
sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things
interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the
far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was
rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to
drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several
rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!
1968 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupe GT 6.5 litre (390 Big Block)
Have had this project for some time now, and don't have the time it
deserves to be put into it. This is a very very rare car. Most of the
Cougars you may find have the 289 ci V8. This car has the 390 big block
-The power is unbelievable.
Back in the day, Ford marketed the Mustang "for the man starting out",
the Mercury Cougar was marketed as for "the man who was on his way". (The
Thunderbird was marketed for "the man who had arrived") Car is
unbelievably powerful, pulls rubber in all 3 gears. I have had the car for
a long time, started it several times every year. But it is time to let it
go to a good home. This is a numbers matching authentic S code 390 Cougar
These are unique and beautiful cars.
