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.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed
Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427
Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than
performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which
earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A
genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar
is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra
Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line
power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally
finished in Black.
Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared
restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and
brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the
unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that
comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship.
A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable
car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report.
