Mercury Cougar is the name applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold
by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company from 1967 to 2002. As was
common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford
models. Originally, this was the Mustang, later the Thunderbird, and
the last a version of the Contour. The Cougar was important to Mercury's
image for many years, and advertising often identified its dealers as being
"at the sign of the cat." Female models holding big cats on leashes were
used on Cougar ads in the early 1970s.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer the handsome 1972 Mercury
Cougar XR7 Convertible. The '72 Cougar XR-7 you see today is said to be a
93,931 original mile car that is finished in the original color combination
of Bright Blue Metallic with White/Blue interior. The paint looks very good
and shows no major spots of imperfections, just a few minor spots of touch
up. The power white convertible top is equally as nice with no staining,
rips or tears to the vinyl. The rear window is glass.
Inside, the White/ Blue vinyl interior is the original for the car and in
great condition. The carpet appears to have been replaced recently and is
in great condition. The dash, door panels, arm rest and wood grain trim are
all equally as nice with on major wear showing.
Under the hood, the 351 cubic inch V8 runs great and starts with a turn of
the key. The motor is said to be the original for the car and still retains
its original 2 barrel carburetor, power steering, power disc brakes and air
conditioning. The air conditioning is currently inoperable but it appears
to only be in need of a charge. The engine is nicely detailed and very
original. No damage to be found. The motor is connected to the three speed
automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and performs with no problems.
Under the car is very solid with no rot that we have seen. It appears to be
all original metal under this original southern car. The VIN is 2F94H517485
and the mileage currently shows 93,931, which is believed to be original
for the car. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND

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.

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

'70 Cougar Convertible Buying Guide - What To Look For
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.
