Street racing in 1979, Dieters 1970 Cougar
Dieter's 1970 Cougar Eliminator (former NHRA Super Stock car) with a
modified Boss 351C motor, (very rare), street racing an all out 1969 Camaro drag car in 1979.
Old school street racing where it all began and the way it was back then.
NO juice in those days, and healthy small blocks were making about 425 HP.
*SOLD* 1969 Mercury Cougar "Black Cat"
Nothing looks sharper than a triple black car, and that is exactly what we
have here. Very nice 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible with black paint, a
black top, and a black interior. A powerful 351 Windsor powers this classic
street machine around. Power windows, locks, and top make this car a luxury
cruiser. Engine and transmission have less than 2,000 miles on a rebuild.
Please, call 800-231-3616 for additional details.
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.
