Description:

1969 Mercury Cougar XR7

I have been restoring this car but am being relocated, and cannot take it with me, so must sell it. It is disassembled - trunk, hood, front fenders and doors removed in preparation to bead blast the inner fender wells, bottom and firewall - and mostly stripped to bare metal.
I have spent nearly $7,000 on the car, the engine and trans, and new/replacement parts, plus 'Eliminator' add-ons. There are too many new parts to list all, but here are the biggies I have purchased.:
  • 351 Cleveland 2V on an engine stand (Engine stand goes with sale)
  • Automatic transmission (Matched pair - purchased the engine and transmission together)
  • Complete dual exhaust with mufflers (Purchased with the engine/transmission)
  • New nickel/chrome front and rear bumpers from 'The Bumper Boyz' in California
  • New floor pans from Laurel Mountain Mustangs
  • New battery box and supports from Mustangs Unlimited
  • New right front inner fender sheetmetal (goes with the battery box)
  • 4 NEW B.F. Goodrich 14" white letter radials. Mounted on:
  • Correct rally wheels for an Eliminator
  • New trim rings and center caps for an Eliminator
  • Complete new front suspensioncomponents from Mustangs Unlimited
  • Spring compressor for the front coil springs goes with the front suspension
  • Replacement front axles
  • New front axle bearings
  • New front rotors, calipers and pads from Mustangs Unlimited
  • New rear brake drums and shoes fromMustangs Unlimited
  • New steering rack from Mustangs Unlimited
  • New chrome power brake master cylinder
  • New fuel tank with float and sending unit
  • New trunk mat (Original checkerboard style)
  • Replacement dashboard and trim pieces in burgundy
  • New headliner in burgundy to match new dashboard
  • New door and trunk lock set
  • Extra set of door panels in black
  • Complete new interior screw set
  • Extra grill for the air intake area in front of the windshield
  • Extra front valance
  • Center console
All of these parts are boxed up in my basement, and you can see in the pictures, they take up an entire wall of my basement.
I would REALLY like to find someone who wants to continue the restoration, since I have put so much time, effort (and $$$) into it, and I do not have time to complete it nor sell off all the parts, so it is an all-or-nothing sale.
Feel free to ask questions.
