1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7

Up for Auction isa USED 1968 Mercury COUGAR XR-7 2 door coupe - Red Exterior with white vinyl top and Red Interior. This car starts, runs, drives, stops as it sits. I occasionally drive this car, but not enough. I bought this car a few years ago thinking I would drive it and tinker with it as needed - I just never seem to find the time. Need to thin the herd - no sense having this just sit in storage collecting dust. This car has been stored inside since I bought it. No Refunds, No Returns.

This car is a 1968 XR-7 with a 302 cu. in. V-8 engine and an automatic transmission with a center console mounted floor "T" Handle shifter with bucket seats, power steering and power brakes. Miles shown on the Odometer are 37,509 miles, which, considering the condition of the interior, may be the true, original miles - but I have no way to confirm this - may be 137,500, I just don't know for sure. If I remember correctly the odometer was working the last time I drove this car. Exterior of this car is very straight with faded red paint on the top-sides of the car. This is a vinyl roof car - please see the pics - there are some "pimples" under the vinyl in various spot under the vinyl top. I am assuming these are small rust / scale spots - I have no plans to remove the vinyl top to investigate since this could just turn into a project that I have no plans to get involved with at this time. Car has factory Air Conditioning (which worked the last time I tried it but probably needs a charge), also has original "Cougar" radio which I believe also includes a cassette player, and a low center mounted clock. Red interior is in very nice shape considering the age of this vehicle - remember this car is almost 50 years old. Interior includes red vinyl seats, red carpeting and the wood-grain dash (a decal, I believe). Interior does need a new dash pad and maybe a recover of the top of the back seat - probably due to sun damage, but if you wanted to keep it as original as possible, that might be all the interior needs. Windows are manual windows and I believe all window regulators worked the last time I used them, although the driver's window was difficult to roll up and down, but it did work. Front headlights are the hide-away style lights and the headlight doors still work - a little slow, but they work. The tail lights are the sequential signal lights and these also still work.

This car does run & drive. I have driven this car around my area to just enjoy it, just don't drive it enough. Have probably driven this car on short local trips of 60 miles round-trip or less. Tires are the same tires that were on it when I bought it - probably should be replaced before you plan to drive it any longer distances. Since it has been sitting off and on for the last few years, I would also suggest a thorough tune-up and inspection. I would suggest you plan to trailer this car home after purchase - unless you just happen to be local to Tulsa, Oklahoma.

I have a clean, clear, current, title and Oklahoma Tag/License in my name. Just added a pic of the Warranty Tag on the side of the driver's door - see pics above. Information on the tag includes VIN # (see number listed elsewhere in this listing), Body Code: 65B - 2 dr Hardtop XR-7, Color: T - Red, Trim: 8D - Red 6 (Vinyl), Date: 14B - February (2/14/1968), D.S.O.: 22 - Dallas, Axle (ratio): 5 - 3.00:1, Trans: W - C-4 Automatic XP3 and Made in USA. Found this info online - I believe it is correct, but don't know for sure.

Bought this car from a local guy that bought it from what I believe was the original owner - I believe, but have no way to know for sure. The original owner (I was told) was also a local older gentleman who used this car to get around and stored it at his house under a car port - this is the reason I believe this car has faded paint on the top side.
