1969 Mercury Cougar

Luxury, performance, and distinction have never been so affordable. This 1969 Mercury Cougar convertible looks fantastic to onlookers while providing A/C comfort to you. And while it's the Mustang's lower production cousin (right down to the 351 V8 under the hood,) this rarity is available for a much more obtainable price.The Cougar certainly has all the right muscle car details for the era, and it walks with big cat swagger. The styling is Mustang-sized, but it's a little more sophisticated. You see it in the details like the subtle body crease running from the front fender to the rear wheel opening. A few extra dollops of chrome, including the gorgeous sequential taillights with their bright surrounds. And the hidden headlights that were definitely more Lincoln than Ford. But more than just elegant, this one definitely goes for a sportier feeling. You see it in the bright Aqua Blue paint with black hood stripe, and the big hood scoop and rear spoiler are borrowed from the aggressive Eliminator package. There is a feeling of premium the moment you sit in the driver's seat. The factory built these comfortable buckets with headrests, and its nicely restored presentation today makes it feel like 1969 all over again. A center console, three-spoke steering wheel, full round gauge package (including tach), and all that wood panel trim it's the perfect blend of luxury and performance. Besides just the great presentation, this one has all the right features, including an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo (the original AM radio comes with the sale.) But the pieces we know you'll love the most are the power convertible top and the air conditioning. It creates the feeling of vintage droptop luxury at its finest, and you get to stay cool while enjoying it.Power for the big cat comes from a 351 cubic-inch V8, which is a perfect fit in the Cougar's engine bay and gives the car great performance without the big block weight. The presentation is quite stock with the big blue air cleaner sitting on top of the big blue block, and that's even likely the factory compressor. So it has the overall kind of honesty we're enjoying more of at car shows these days. Out on the road, the legendary 351 has plenty of power to keep you happy, and the V8 is as easy to maintain as its Mustang cousin. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, and you've got a total package worthy of the Cougar name.With total Cougar convertible production under 10K for '69, you begin to realize this vintage Mercury gives you all the benefits of the Mustang with more distinction and rarity. That's why we know this affordable classic droptop won't stick around long. Call now!!
