Description:

1968 Mercury Cougar

This is a muscle car that looks great and runs well. It gets a lot of attention with its classic styling. It has a number of performance upgrades and a beautiful paint job. It was restored in the early 1990’s and was supposedly shown at the Detroit Autorama. I bought the car almost 5 years ago off an ebay private seller. I’m only selling because I don’t have the room to keep it any longer. Please see details below. Buyer is responsible for pickup or shipping. Ask any questions you may have.
