1978 Mercury Cougar
I am the original owner this 1978 Mercury Cougar XR-7. SURVIVOR
Less than 33,XXX original miles, 400 C.I.D. engine. FMX Trans. Everything is original including the paint, with the exception of battery, shocks,and tires. This car has never seen any snow or salt. I got caught in the rain with it a few times. When I bought the vehicle I sprayed the undercarriage with rust-oleum with less than 50 miles on the vehicle. I am the only one to have driven this vehicle.
There is NO rust. NO door dings. NO scratches. This car was never wrecked and been kept in a heated garagewith no window so there is no fading due to UV rays.It has never gone thru a automatic car wash. Therefore there are no minute' scratches in the paint. Waxed only (Hand rubbed) with simonize original. yellow can. Even the rubber door seals are like new and still flexible. The oil has been changed every 2000 miles. The only fuel used in this vehicle has been Amoco (now BP) ultimate 93 octane.
It has never been smoked in. No leaks now or ever. Email any questions that you might have. This car is as close to perfect as you will get. I am convinced this is the best example of a 1978 Cougar XR-7 in the country. The paint is Dark Brown Metalic This is a solid car with no mechanical issues and guaranteed not to have a spec of rust anywhere. It does need tires and a muffler, the muffler is original and has a small hole in the rear where condensation lies, and the tires are about 26 years old.
I am only sellng because I have to many vehicles and decided to sell a few. Yes, I am getting old! Everything has been documented. I have all documents and the shop manuals.
The buyer is responsible for vehicle pickup or shipping. If you are picking up the vehicle in person, only cash will be accepted.
Imagine a virtually brand new car for $12,500. This car has Zero issues other than the muffler and tires as specified
