1967 Mercury Cougar
For Sale By Owner
Reduced To $15,500.00 For Immediate Sale
 
This beautiful car underwent a complete three year body-off restoration that was completed in 1994. I had always wanted another ’67 Cougar ever since I sold the one I had driven in High School in the 1970’s. The extensive restoration was performed entirely by myself utilizing ten plus years experience as a Ford factory trained Heavy Line Mechanic. The car was then driven for only one year by a stay-at-home mom to run the kids to school and go to the store. When a new model car was purchased for her, this car was prepared and placed in garaged storage, and had not been driven or licensed since 1995. The total driven mileage since completion of the restoration is less than 6,000 miles. Three months ago I retrieved the car from storage, however it still remains unregistered (license is not current) and therefore is not being driven.

 
Specifications are as follows: Original 289 c.i., 4V engine, floor shift auto transmission, power steering, power brakes, tilt and swivel steering column, air conditioning. Restoration was so complete, that the body was suspended on a rotation device to allow me standing access to the underside where fuel and brake lines where removed, the body stripped, and the underside repainted the original factory black color. The top side was repainted factory turquoise blue with the doors, deck lid, hood, and fenders painted separately while off the car. The interior was totally redone with original quality and type seat covers, head liner, and carpeting, and then a new white vinyl top was installed. The exterior of the engine appears completely stock after the overhaul, except for a replacement carburetor (the original carburetor was not capable of passing today’s Arizona emissions standards). However, the engine is far from stock internally. All intake and exhaust manifold passages and cylinder head runners were flow tested, ported to equality, and then all the gas paths were Extrudehoned® (abrasive flow machined) to a mirror finish. The mild cam ensures performance but does not adversely effect idle or emissions. All parts were blueprinted and balanced prior to assemble. Wheel dynamometer testing of completed car recorded 160 hp at the rear wheels through a highway ratio rear axle drivetrain. The suspension was completely new including springs, bushings, grommets, and gas stabilized shock absorbers. The new dual exhaust system is of the factory design. The original factory drum brakes were converted to disc brakes utilizing 1968 cougar components including the properly sized master cylinder replacement onto the vacuum power booster. The original wheels and wheel covers were replaced with factory rally spoke chrome wheels with the original Mercury center caps. The factory AM radio was replaced with AM/FM, CD player with 100 watt amplifier.
 
This is an originally purchased Arizona car, and was driven every day of its life in our rust free climate. I am the fourth owner, and knew the third owner, as he was my friend’s father who drove it daily to work for several years. I also have the original owner’s manual and sales documentation from when the car was first purchased from a Scottsdale, Arizona Lincoln Mercury dealer the day before Christmas, in 1967.
