1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible
So you want a drop top convertible, but you also want something rare and luxurious? This 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 convertible gives you all of this with V8 power and a value price. The Cougar was built to be a Mustang in a dinner jacket, and this red body with a refined white convertible top just seems to deliver on this sporty sophistication. This car has spent a life as a cherished driver, so you have good gloss and nice panels Ã¢â‚¬â€œ exactly what you want is an eye-catching classic. And you'll love the details like the white rub strip that matches the convertible top, and the sporty Mag wheels with proper Mercury center caps. This was part of a grand tradition at Mercury of offering serious style, and you see it everywhere from the waterfall grille to the form-fitting rear bumper with integrated lights. And despite this appeal, the upscale XR7 convertible is quite rare Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with barely over 1,900 example produced this year. And how many do you think survived to look this good? If you like the look of the white roof, then with the flip of a switch, you'll love to power it down and show off the interior. The XR7 package was the top of the line for the Cougar, so you can certainly expect this one to be loaded. It starts with the high back bucket seats that are all-day comfortable. Those who have driven Mustangs from this era will find something familiar about the layout of this Cougar, except there's an added premium feeling. For example, you still have the same sporty sloping center console and dashboard setup, but now there's more wood trim and a substantially larger gauge package with tachometer. And this really feels like a well-preserved time capsule, even in the features Ã¢â‚¬â€œ from the AM/FM stereo to the factory air conditioning. Open the hood and you'll see an engine bay that looks quite correct. The first thing you'll notice is the big blue air cleaner on the Cleveland 351 V8 motor that still has its original-style tags. Often this would have been replaced with a chrome unit, but that wouldn't be right on such a well-presented Mercury. And the V8 is not just there for all-out power, but also it's part of a confident driving package. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, and this is the convertible that's easy for any day of the week. You're looking at well-preserved history. In fact, it's believed this has only had two owners and was always garage-kept. That makes this value-priced classic droptop a true legacy you can join...but only if you're first to grab this deal.
