!!UP FOR AUCTION!!

 

1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible w/ 351 Cleveland Cobra Jet engine with 4 barrel carburetor

 

VIN: 3F94Q571928

 

Mileage: 44. 05 Miles

 

Up for auction is a 1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible w/ 351 Cleveland Cobra Jet engine with 4 barrel carburetor. This car belonged to my grandfather until he passed away last fall and left it to my brother and I.   He purchased the car BRAND NEW in 1973. It has been garage kept ever since and driven very sparingly. as you can see by the fact that it only has 44. 05 miles! WOW! The car is in very good condition and is almost all original (see notes below). Take your time to look at all the pictures and you will be very happy with this car.   Only 3. 66 of the 1973 Cougar XR7 Convertibles were produced!

 

The Good:

 

Engine – The VIN number has Q in it which means that the engine is a Cobra Jet engine. The air cover doesn't have a “CJ” on it. but I have been told by some car enthusiasts that this engine is a Cobra Jet though because that is what the Q code in the VIN number means.

 

Body condition – You aren't going to find very many cars from 1973 that are in anywhere near as good as shape as this vehicle.

 

Mileage – WOW! 44. 05 miles! These are all original miles. No rebuilds have ever been done to this engine. VERY VERY LOW MILEAGE for a car made in 1973!

 

One Owner – This car was purchased BRAND NEW by my grandfather in 1973.

 

Garage Kept – This car has been garage kept since the day he bought it!

 

Convertible Top & Cover – These are both in very good shape. Convertible top glides right back into place with a flick of the switch and the cover fits nice and snug for a nice ride.

 

Leather Interior – Leather does show some small signs of wear. but overall is in very good shape!

 

Trunk – Nice and clean! Spare tire included!

 

ALMOST ALL ORIGINAL! – The car has an aftermarket tape player. When I took possession of the car it was given a good look over by a mechanic and had some minor work done. (rear pinion seal. right control arm sway bar link. and radiator replaced) All original mileage. and very very low mileage!

 

Runs great – Fires right up and rides nice and smooth!

 

The Bad:

 

If you have any questions or would like to see some additional pictures about any of the topics below feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I intend to paint a clear picture with my description and pictures as to what the car really looks like.

 

Leather Interior – Shows some signs of wear. but are very minimal. Overall the leather is still is very good shape.

 

Tires – Needs a new set of tires

 

Rear Passenger Side Panel & Passenger Door Jamb – There is a very small amount of paint chipping off and a small amount of rust forming in this area. It is very minimal. It has not rusted through completely and appears to just be surface rust.

 

Inside Passenger Door Handle – Seems to be hanging down slightly versus what the handle looks like on the driver's side door. Still works just fine though.

 

Clock in middle console – This doesn't appear to be working currently. I haven't attempted to figure out what the problem is. Could be something very simple. such as a fuse.

 

Driver's Seat – Small tear leather on the seam on the left side of the driver's seat

 

Driver's Door Pull Handle – I have the handle. but it isn't currently attached to the door. The handle has some yellow discoloring to it as well.

 

Convertible Tops & Cover – These both have some slight wear. but are still in good shape.

 

Front Driver's Side Panel – Looks like some splatter of something from the road and possibly some small amount of paint chipping.

 

Air Conditioning – The car has air conditioning. but it isn't currently working. When I had the car looked over when I first took possession of the car I was told it needed to be recharged.

 

Chrome - The rear passenger side wheel housing chrome strip is no longer in place like it is on the other wheel housings.

 

 

Overall this is an amazing vehicle. My grandfather took great care of it and made sure that it would continue to be a great vehicle for somebody to own for years to come. If I had somewhere to keep it and could afford the insurance and regular upkeep on it I would love to keep it. but unfortunately without a regular space to keep it in forever and my first child on the way I must part ways with it unfortunately. My grandfather has taken great care of this car and now it must find a new home and a new owner to take just as great of care of it.

 

Should you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me and I will get back with you ASAP. I was only able to upload 24 pictures to the listing. but I have additional pictures that I can send to anybody at their request. This car is located just outside of Cincinnati. OH. so if you are interested and would like to see the car in person feel free to message me and we can setup a meeting. Happy bidding and I look forward to selling you a great vehicle. Thank you

 

 

 

 

 

On Jun-01-14 at 14:00:48 PDT. seller added the following information:

Update: While driving vehicle today the rear drivers side tire tread tore off the tire and part of the tire flew off and dented in and chipped the paint on the the farthest back low section of the back panel. I can't add additional pictures to listing. but if you are interested in bidding on the car please let me know and I will send you a picture of the damaged. Because of this and for safety reasons all of the tires are going to be replaced prior to the sell of those car with brand new tires.
