1979 Mercury Cougar XR-7

1979 Mercury Cougar XR-7 Special Edition- Chamois Decor - ONE OF ONE !!!!!

We are selling this car because we have bought another and need the garage space. We are not a dealer and own one too many Cougars. We discovered this car in Avon Park Florida. It was custom ordered from the local dealer and remained with the elderly owner until his death. He sold it to his neighbor who later died and we bought it from his estate. We have the paperwork and receipts from new. We obtained the Marti report and found that this is One of One Cougar XR-7 and only one of twelve with the moonroof / Chamois Décor option. It has the special color-keyed factory styled steel wheels in chamois.

The car is in impeccable condition. It is like a time capsule to 1979. It is perfect in every way and everything works and runs as it should. It has one small scratch in the original paint shown in the photos. That’s it! It has not been repainted and we detailed and cosmetically restored it by cleaning. It has no power seats or windows as the car was special ordered this way.

It has all new brakes and rotors. The tires have perhaps 1000 miles on them. We replaced the radiator condenser drier compressor fan motor. The a/c is ice cold. The carburetor has been rebuilt. The 302-2v runs and purrs perfectly. We installed a dual exhaust on the vehicle. We replaced all of the shocks.

The only two things is the clock does not work and the temperature cable needs adjustment at the heater control box. That is the extent of anything this fine car needs! There are no signs of wear or discoloration on the carpets or upholstery. The moonroof opens and closes and seals perfectly as it should.

This car is laser straight and never been in any accidents. The paint shines and glistens everywhere. The chrome is great. The underside photos show it appears like a brand new car. There are no defects. Everything is as original except the dual exhaust. Every sticker is where it is supposed to be from the factory. The vinyl roof is in factory new condition. The glass is perfect. We added a wind deflector on the moon roof that is easily removed. The glass has been tinted.

Feel free to bid with confidence. Feel confident to drive this car cross country today. The car is show-ready and waiting for you to buy it. More pictures are available here:
