1979 Mercury Cougar

This 1979 Cougar XR-7 is in great shape. The 351 (5.8L) V8 purrs like a kitten and has plenty of get up and go. The exterior landau vinyl top and matching padded "Continental" trunk lid show very little to no wear. The two-tone interior is in excellent shape.Note: the clock and temp gauge are not currently working.

The color keyed styled road wheels look just like they did from the factory in 1979. There are a few small dents in the chrome wheel well moldings. The car has been repainted in glistening black paint with tan pinstripes. It is rust free.Be prepared to say "thank you" many times in correlation to the compliments this car receives. I have taken it to a few local car shows and it garners its share of attention among 50s show pieces, 60s muscle cars and highly customized vehicles.
