line-height:normal">

line-height:normal">Up for consideration as a summer project or possible
candidate for a full-scale restoration is this 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7. Same
owner 23 years. The car originally came with the XR-7 package, power disc
brakes, bumperettes, and more. It is one of only 133 with the Caribbean Blue
paint & deluxe black leather seats. This is a vinyl top-delete vehicle. The
front end has been 'Shelbyized' for a lowered, stream-line look, and to improve
handling around corners. The alignment is true & correct, and the car
drives straight w/o any issues. New brakes, carb overhaul, all fluids changed
including rear end, new AAA battery, alternator(rebuilt original), and new
start solenoid. The engine is a 302 4V w/ Holley 4160(600 cfm) and mild after
market cam, and makes the car very fast on the highway. There is a minor
off-idle stumble, but does not affect performance or drive-ability, and the
secondaries open up like they should(wow!). Okay, now for the body...



There is rust around the rear window, upper left windshield pillar(pic), and
the typical patches on the lower fronts of both doors & rear quarters. The
back window will have to be removed in order to fix this correctly. The floor
pans are excellent, and in my opinion do not need to be replaced. The driver
side has a few pin holes(pic), but overall not too bad. The red tint you see
there is Eastwood's red oxide primer. The only fender that was ever really hit
was the left rear, but is cosmetic, and no structural damage occurred(pic). I
worked on it a bit, but will need to be massaged with a hammer & dolly. All
gauges work including the tach & ammeter. Sequential turn signals work, and
the headlight covers pop up but do not go back down. The side windows do not go
down without brute force, so the cranks will need replacing/ lubricating. Does
not leak or burn oil. There is an occasional drip that comes out of the down
shift lever rod, and so the down shift cable was disconnected and plugged off.
The car is currently registered w/ a clean title, 4 good tires, and can be used
as a daily driver...

She is very dependable, I made several round trips to San Jose and back over
the years without a single breakdown...

I currently have over $5K in repair and parts receipts...

Includes Marti Report(pic). The only thing I am uncertain about is whether or
not the engine is original. The machined 'pad' behind the intake manifold is
blank. It may have to be removed in order to see it(???). Maybe you collectors
can help me out here. All the date codes appear to match up to within a couple
of weeks of production...
