1969 Mercury Couger XR7 351 Windsor
Can't remember this fella's name...It isn't mine. Even though the owner
admitted the car isn't in show stopper condition...yet, he was the ONLY
Cougar on the lot at the show. And that's why I like the car. At 42 yrs
old, there are some occasional electrical gremlins (not affiliated with
AMC) that bedevil the owner. But, we all must persevere through the
aggrevation. My Comet certainly has its issues. It's a 351 Windsor, C-6
w/9inch rear. Taken at Abingdon, MD Lowes in September 2011.
1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible
A striking convertible...complete with a mascot resting on the top of the
Mercury used the real animal extensively in advertising at this time...so
the connection is real! Beautiful upholstery! Who can say "no" to a
beautiful red convertible?

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
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.

1970 Mercury Cougar Convertible 351 Windsor V8 - Nicely Restored
I thought you'd like a look at this very slick 1970 Mercury Cougar
Convertible. This one is powered by a high performance 351 Windsor V8,
equipped with a Holley 4 BBL carb, Edelbrock aluminum intake and a set of
coated headers. The metallic blue paint is slick, the hideaway headlights
work as they should, and it even has the sequential turn signals. The
interior is in black vinyl and really looks great too. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1970 Mercury Cougar convertible for sale
You are looking at a lovely example of a classic Mercury Cougar
convertible, finished in dark red the original colour, with red interior,
a very solid rust free California car since new, still wears the original
blue and yellow california license plates. I purchased this car last year
from the estate of the original owner, who sadly passed away.
The car has 351 V8 2bbl with automatic, and has had an Vintage Air air
conditioning system professionally installed at a cost of nearly $3500, its
a really nice installation, and will freeze your ta tas off!
I have put new brake pads, calipers, master cylinder and Booster. New KYB shocks front and rear, and a
brand new custom made dual Exhaust
system that is nice and subtle that will not upset your neighbours on a
Sunday morning!! The ignition switch was replaced, and all the belts and
hoses have been recently replaced, along with Platinum spark plugs, new
I also added a Petronix ignition system and Flamethrower coil to make the
car a reliable everyday driver. The electric windows have been rebuilt and
the car has a power top with new cylinders and hoses, the top is in
excellent condition with a glass rear window, the parade boot is also
present. I have over $15k in receipts !!
The interior is exceptionally nice, carpet is like new, the seats are
excellent, and the dash pad is perfect, not warped or cracked, an Alpine AM
FM Cd player has been installed with upgraded speakers behind stock looking
door speaker grilles
This convertible body style was only made for 1969 and 1970, so they are
pretty rare, only 2322 convertibles were made in 1970 !! So there cannot be
too many left. The Mercury shares many of the mechanical items such as
suspension, brakes, etc with the ubiquitous Mustang,
The car runs and drives very well, and needs nothing but a driver, the
transmission shifts well, car brakes perfectly, and the top, windows,
wipers, and lights all work.
The car is sold completely as is, no warranty expressed or implied, this is
a 42 year old car, its not perfect, but its very nice. Please ask
questions, I strongly encourage inspections, the car is titled in my name,
no liens, with a clear California title, and the car is currently
registered and insured. The car is located in Los Angeles, I can arrange
shipping overseas or nationwide at your cost.
Please have your finances in order before you look at the car. If you have
to ask your wife, bank manager, cat or dog, please move on !! And don't
bid, if you have a less than perfect feedback rating or lower than 5 please
contact me before bidding. Thanks for looking. :) I have tried to be
honest and accurate in my descriptions, but descriptions are open to
interpretation, so please ask specific questions. Car is for sale locally
so I reserve to end the auction early, so if you want to buy the car give
me a call and lets do a deal.

Muscle Cars, Pianos, and One Rare Cougar
You might not expect to find a collection of gleaming muscle cars in the
back warehouse of a piano shop, but that's just what you'll find at AZ
Piano, owned by Jason Sipe of Phoenix. He is currently restoring an
ultra-rare 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 Cobra Jet, 4-speed, drag pak car with a
power sunroof. Naturally, we had to meet up with Jason while we were in
the area and check out his cars.
