1967 Mercury Cougar
Completely restored 1967 mercury cougar xr7 one of a kind show winner.
I have spent the last 8 years and a lot of money completing the following;
THE DRIVE TRAIN; custom built 347 ci stroker motor with roller cam, 50 cfm 4150hp Holley carb, sd pro billet distributer w/msd 6al ignition system, ll brackets are custom 1 of a kind handmade out of billet aluminum, tilizing a gm thermostat housin, m power steering pump, gm 1 wire alternator. All power is transmitted through a ford top loader 4 spd w/Hurst shifter connected to a custom built ford 9 inch rear end w/3.55 gear. The exhaust system starts with hooker headers which have ball flanges added and have been ceramic coated, ig welded to stainless steel magnaflow x pipe the and exits through the magnaflow system, roducing the most awesome sound you will ever hear.
THE SUSPENSION; the rear suspension has new leaf springs w/ an extra leaf added and a additional inch of arch, ew shocks and all bushings, ooks up very well and has no wheel hop. The front suspension has new springs and shocks and a 1 inch sway bar that almost eliminates all body roll, his car corners like its on rails.
THE BRAKES; 4 wheel power disc brakes bring this monster to a grinding halt with no effort. The front brakes are from a 1978 ford Granada all new. The rear brakes are from a 1996 ford explorer also all new.
THE LIGHTING; the sequential turn signals work very well, as upgraded to electronic version but the mechanical assembly comes with the car. The vacuum head lamps work, ut not very well since the vacuum reservoir has been greatly reduced and the large cam reduces engine vacuum.
THE INTERIOR; is almost completely original all was either died or recovered, he car was originally an automatic car but no wholes were cut and the factory consol was added. A USA 230 from classic stereos was added (no cutting) w/usb and I pod attachments the front seats were recovered (not very well) and the car comes with a set of hi backs that need recovered. Has new carpet and front kick panels w/ speakers. The head liner has a small hole above driver’s sun visor.
THE BODY; has new fender aprons front and rear the core support was laid back 1 inch at the top to facilitate the installation of a electric cooling fan, ll the wheel moldings and bumpers and door handles were replaced with re chromed or new have originals that go with the car. A few of the chrome trim pieces have small dings. Has a 1969 mustang rear spoiler and hood scoop. Has 2011 camaro gray metallic paint with black strips the c strip was modeled after the mustang and the xr7 logo was stenciled into the stripe; this was all done in paint under the clear (no stickers).
OTHER STUFF; all lines and hoses were replaced with new and sure grip gates heat shrink hose clamps were used that work very well, ew gas tank and sending unit, he battery tray was custom built for a 75 series gm side post battery. The horn button was shaved 2 inches as to not be ugly. This car looks great driving down the road gets all kinds of attention at the shows and runs and drives every bit as good.
