1968 Mercury Cougar
DSI Auto Sales, LLC is pleased to present this extremely rare 1968 Cougar Convertible. This is not a misprint! This is a real 1968 Cougar Convertible. The Mercury dealers in 1968 were trying to keep up with the Mustangs so they began to do dealer conversions on the Cougars to try to keep up with the Mustangs. Some people started calling these "CATVERTS". I am not sure when this name got started. This is your opportunity to own a true classic. You will not find another one like this in the world! This car will get you into all kinds of fun conversations. My advice would be do not drive this car anywhere if you are in a hurry because it always generates a lot of conversation.
I purchased this Cougar from the second owner in 2011. He had owned it since the mid 80's. He told me he purchased it from the original owner who purchased it with about 6,000 miles as a demo. I have no paperwork to verify this but that is the story he told me. As a matter of fact, there is a much more interesting story to go with this car that I promised that I would only share with the buyer after I sold it(if I ever decided to sell it). That is what he did when he sold it to me and I will do the same. It is a good story to go with the car but unverifiable and could potentially over value the car if disclosed prior to the sale. The gentleman I purchased the car from had no idea when the convertible conversion had been done but it was prior to his ownership. He did have it redone after he got it.
I had it repainted to a pearl white color inside and out. I would describe the car as a driver quality car. It would be great for weekend car shows, flea markets, etc. It is not a perfect car. The seats need to be recovered again it has a few minor blemishes that you would expect for a car that is actually driven some. The chrome is ok for a driver but would need to be redone if made a show car. It does have the Dan Gurney interior which is a nice plus. The engine has been completely gone through as well. It has been completely sealed and there are no known leaks anywhere! It is believed to be an original 59,000 miles on the vehicle as well. The title(yes it has a title!) will reflect that as well. The car will be sold exempt because of the age. This car has a 302 2 barrel v8 engine and the automatic transmission. It has an aftermarket exhaust with a very minor rumble to it. It has plenty of pickup but is by no means fast! All of the electrical has been inspected and replaced as needed in the last year as well. The sequential rear lights work as they should and so do the headlight covers(the drivers side is sometims a little slow to come down).
Please feel free to call me at 404 403 2974 with any and all questions. I am a used car dealer but this is my personal car so I can sell it either through the dealership or by owner. It will be up to the buyer.
I thank you for your interest.
