Convertible Top Installation: 1969 - 1970 Cougar / Mustang

In this episode, we tackle the daunting task of installing a convertible top on a 1969 Mercury Cougar. Instead of stumbling through it ourselves, we watch a professional do the installation and take note of some of the details and tricks involved in the process. Javier was there to help and translate, and the end result was a great looking black convertible top.

Vinyl Top Installation - '68 Cougar
In this video, we watch as a professional installs a vinyl top on a 1968 Mercury Cougar. After observing the process, we think this is a job that the average do-it-yourself-er can handle. It does require a certain amount of finesse, but not as much as a headliner installation requires (see our other video on that subject). This premium quality vinyl top can be found on our website here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13820-Vinyl-Top-Concours-Correct -BLACK-Repro-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html Economy vinyl tops also available: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/67-vinyl-top.html Like us on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar Subscribe to our channel for more Cougar videos!

Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

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.





'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. Looking for Cougar parts? We have everything 1967-1973.

Carburetor Rebuild Basics (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Carburetor Rebuild Basics covers the basics of rebuilding a carburetor. Now there are a LOT of different carburetors out there so this video won't apply to all of them, but it will give you a general idea of what you would be in for if you decided to rebuild one. Me, I like rebuilding carburetors. There's something about mechanical things like carburetors that interest me. How even the smallest part has a big effect on the overall operation of your engine. Since we've gone to fuel injection carburetors have become somewhat obsolete. I'm still a fan though. I may be a little rusty on this stuff since I haven't done this in some time but I hope this video helps you just the same. If nothing else, I hope you're entertained by it.

Mustang Convertible Top Hydraulic Repair 1965-1973
http://www.cjponyparts.com/convertible-top-hydraulic-cylinder-lh-or-rh-1971 /p/CTHC2/ There's nothing worse than a faulty power top on your Mustang convertible and getting caught in the rain. The hydraulic system consists of the switch, motor, lines, and the convertible top cylinders. For repair on our 1971 Mustang, Bill installs a new hydraulic cylinder and a Scott Drake convertible top hose kit. To install the new cylinders, you'll begin by removing the back seat cushions and quarter trim panels. Follow Bill's instructions to disconnect the old cylinder and remove it from your Mustang. Disconnect the lines next and remove them, and then install the new Scott Drake hose kit. Installing the cylinder to the lines is simple, screwing on the longer hose to the bottom of the cylinder and the shorter hose to the top. You'll then need to fill and bleed the system, as demonstrated in the video. Once the system is filled and bled, make sure everything is dry and bolt the motor back and install the new cylinders. Put the trim panels back and the seat and you're finished. Total installation takes up to three hours.

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.
