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.

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you
have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a
1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this
video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof
skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a
restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him
