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

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.

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.

133120 / 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator Boss 302
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9fpv8je
Ready for a different kind of pony car? Take a close look at this pristine
1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. Fresh out of a comprehensive restoration,
this cat has and aggressive demeanor and plenty of power to back it up.
Restored to factory specifications, the body panels are straight in true in
every way. A coat of Ford's code N Pastel Blue covers the body, accented by
the black body-length stripes courtesy of the Eliminator package. While the
color may look white, there is a subtle blue tint that is guaranteed to
make this Mercury stand out in the crowd. Panel fitment is also far
superior to anything that left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1970.
Other pieces of the Eliminator package include a front chin spoiler,
blacked-out grilled, hood scoop, an air foil wing and discrete "Eliminator"
decals. The glass appears to be original as does the stainless trim around
it but both are in excellent condition overall. With its race-friendly
look, this is very clearly no common Cougar.
Under the hood, a familiar 290hp Boss 302 V8 provides more than enough
motivation to push this cat around town. From the properly decaled single
snorkel air cleaner to the date-code correct block, everything about the
powerplant looks as it did when it left the factory. The engine fires
immediately, idles well and has a menacing snarl to warn other drivers
exactly what is beside.
Beneath the car, a nicely detailed undercarriage consists of a factory
chassis with factory-correct overspray gracing the rock solid floor fans.
In the center, a Hurst-equipped Toploader 4-speed takes care of gear
selection while a nodular Ford nine-inch differential with 3.91 gears puts
the power the road. Steering is manual but braking is power assisted with
discs in the front and drums out back. The chassis meets the road through
Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around steel wheels topped with dog-dish
hubcaps and chrome beauty rings.
Between the doors, a Medium Blue interior is simple, comfortable and
functional. The hi-back bucket seats are wrapped in Comfortweave vinyl and
face a factory dashboard that houses the original instrumentation plus
climate controls and an AM/FM stereo. With the exception of the aluminum
Hurst shift handle, there are no frills to be found here. Behind the rear
seat, the trunk features a correct mat, jack and spare tire.
Documentation for this Cougar is strong with an original build sheet,
dealer invoice and several records that spell out the car's full history.
There is also a Marti Report that covers everything down to production
In this form, it's easy to imagine the Cougar as less of a sibling and more
of a rival to the Mustang.
With the Boss 302 and slick shifting Toploader, this cat offers all the fun
in a unique shell. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for

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.

1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible 351 Cleveland V8
I thought you might like a look at this 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7
Convertible. It is a very well-preserved original survivor, with only
88,xxx miles on the odometer. It's powered by the numbers matching 351
Cleveland 2 BBL V8, backed by a C6 automatic trans. All the power is sent
back to the extremely durable 9 inch rear. The interior is all original
and is in very good condition. It really is in remarkable condition, given
it's age. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
