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

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.
Burnout by One Wicked 1968 Mercury Cougar
We went to a charity rod run in Wright City, MO about a week ago and this
menacing looking Mercury Cougar was rolling around. It's completely
blacked out and I believe I smelled some race gas as it rolled past. He
decided to bring it out to the burnout pit, just to give people a little
taste of the power lurking under that hood. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for taking a look!

Bonneville SSEi vs '67 Cougar
My brother, dad and I were all heading to a local cruise in and by chance
my dad and I lined up at the light. Dad never looked over at me so I wasn't
sure, but usually he messes around for fun. My brother has the camera
driving the '93 Bonneville SSE behind me. So the light turns green and I
launched. I got to around 60-70mph and let off because I thought dad didn't
get on it. Of course as soon as I let off I realized he was a'comin'
quickly. But by then it would have only created problems had I got back on
it since the road narrows to one lane and we would have got there at the
same time, so I had to let him go. Turns out he was just fooling with me,
letting me get out and then reeling me back in, however had I stayed on it,
I would have still been ahead. So obviously in his eyes he won, I think I
had him for where we were, but the Cougar is without a doubt much quicker,
not denying that.
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.
