1967 Mercury Cougar
Luxury, V8 power, and distinction have never been this affordable. This 1967 Mercury Cougar has all of the right original pieces combined with great upgrades. After all, who wouldn't appreciate bright original paint on the outside and upgraded A/C comfort on the inside?
The Mercury Cougar was the Mustang's rarer and more luxurious cousin, and it carries that distinction nicely. Code-I Lime Gold Metallic is this car's original color, and it's even the original factory applied green! We're amazed at the level of shine that you still get on this half-century old application, but that also tells you about the level of care this one has received throughout its lifetime. So as you enjoy this paintwork, take notice of how the body panels still retain the unique and crisp lines that were exclusive to the Cougar. Plus, the Cougar's hidden headlights and matching grille are more Lincoln than pony car. And the white vinyl roof and black pinstripes are pure '60s premium. Even the chrome bumpers shine like a premium classic should. And yes, the cool sequential taillights are fully functional, too!
One of the coolest colors to go with the shining metallic green exterior is the Ivy Gold interior. Just like the outside, this factory-correct setup is likely original to the car. There's the classic three-spoke steering wheel, full instruments, and all that bright trim this coupe is the perfect blend of luxury and performance. It even has some interesting vintage elements people will love to look at, like the Pacesetter cruise control module that's still on display. But this luxury Mercury has also been upgraded for comfort. That's why you have an armrest center console with cup holders, an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with aux input, and air conditioning blowing cold from modern R134a.
Under the hood, you get more of this car's stellar honesty. This is a C-code coupe, and so it's great to have a 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. And this one truly looks the part of a time capsule with the bold blue block, matching valve covers, and large air topper. And you know people will love pointing out all the correct decals at the car shows. This one also has decades of maintenance records, and the V8 was recently given a tune-up. That kind of life-long care means the V8 fires up nicely, idles smoothly, and makes a nice sound out of the newer stainless dual exhaust. Out on the road, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and BF Goodrich T/A give good comfort to this premium pony cousin.
The sale comes complete with its owner's manual, maintenance records, original warranty card. Its paperwork even comes in the classic dealer folder! So the next owner is positioned to be the proper custodian of this history. Will it be you? Call today!!!
