1969 Mercury Cougar
Power Disc Brakes
107k original miles
One bare metal repaint
Originally sold at Walker Motor Company in Jacksonville Illinois on Oct 21st 1969 to a woman (Sandra S. ) that owned the car about two years. She sold the car on Nov 17th 1971 to the second owner (Larry N. ) that owned the car up to 1989. By the records he kept Larry was one of those guys that wrote everything down on paper. There is a log book with every service. every fuel stop including the mileage and fuel consumption. You have to wonder how Mrs N. put up with someone like that but looking back these records are absolute gold when purchasing a car like this. He bought the car with 27. 67 miles in '71 and sold the car in 1989 with 70. 78 miles. There are hand written notes from the new owner about buying the car and even hand written directions to Larry's house where the purchase took place. Both of these fellows appear to have been Cougar guys as the car was taken to several Cougar events including a couple of Cougar National events. So three owners at this point and all the original paperwork still with the car. These documents include Build sheet. original dealer invoice/window sticker signed in blue ink. original owners manual. original owners card. service records and three sets of original keys. The third owner had the car stripped to bare metal and painted in it's original color. “Light Aqua”. one of 258 in this color. (one of 42 with white interior!) He also re chromed the bumpers and re plated all bright work including the front grill and rear taillight bezel. Engine was out and reconditioned. tranny got a rebuild as well. He drove the trophy winning car to four Cougar national events. He eventually sold his Cougar in January 2010 with 98k miles on it to it's new Australian owner. I imported the car for him in 2010. recent health issues have forced him to sell the car and now we own it. It's not often you find cars with this type of history and documentation.
So now in 2016 the car has 107k miles. Mechanically the car is in great shape. it's been regularly serviced with receipts. There are recent receipts for over $5k that include complete brake overhaul front and rear including new callipers. pads and rotors. new master cylinder. new wheel cylinders. new shoes. new brake hoses etc. . new radiator and new carburettor. Tires are new BFG Silvertown whitewall radials and are perfect for this car. Under the car is nice. all bushes that are not new are good and roadworthy condition. exhaust is newish with no issues. there are no rust issues anywhere in the floors or framerails. The car is very clean and solid. no oil leaks to mention either. Car has current NSW Safety Check dated 1/08/16.
Paint is very good but does have a couple of stone chips that have been touched up. The car was painted back in the mid 90's and still looks fantastic to this day. I would call it very good driver quality that you would be proud to take to a car show. Top was replaced when painted and in good condition and as mentioned before all chrome and bright work was done and looks great today. The car has been garage kept since it was painted and I know that since it's been in Australia it has never seen the rain.
Interior is all original and very good overall condition. Everything works as it should and all gauges function properly. The clock ticks along but over a few days it slowly loses time. Seats are very comfortable. drivers seat and armrest show a bit of wear but there is a brand new full set of seat covers that come with the car. There is also a brand new piece of carpet and two new arm rest. We can install these or if you prefer the original trim the new set can go with the car. your choice. Overall the interior is great original condition. Glass is all very nice. windows wind up and down with ease. Both doors lock and unlock with the ignition key as they should and the trunk opens with the trunk key. Trunk is detailed nicely and presents well. spare is brand new. jack and wheel brace are in place.
I went a bit overboard with the 129 photos below but theres something about this car that was really fun to photograph. The color is so clean and fresh. just a beautiful car to look at and just as nice to drive.
