Mercury : Cougar GT for sale
The introduction of the Cougar finally gave Mercury its own "pony car". Slotted between the Ford Mustang and the Ford Thunderbird. the Cougar would be the performance icon and eventually the icon for the Mercury name for several decades. The Cougar was available in two models (base and XR-7) and only came in one body style (a two-door hardtop). Engine choices ranged from the 200 hp (149 kW) 289 in3 two-barrel V8 to the 335 hp (250 kW) 390 in3 four-barrel V8. A notable performance package called the GT was available on both the base and XR-7 Cougars. This included the 390 in3 V8. as well as a performance handling package and other performance enhancements.
The GT package. meanwhile. supplied a much larger engine. Ford's 390-in3 (6. 4 L) FE-series big block to replace the small-block 289-in3 (4. 7 L) standard powerplant. Along with this came an upgraded suspension to handle the extra weight of the big engine and give better handling. more powerful brakes. better tires and a low-restriction exhaust system. Introduced with the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass' The Work Song. the Cougar was a sales success from its introduction and helped the Lincoln-Mercury Division's 1967 sales figures substantially. The Cougar was Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year for 1967.
This 1967 Mercury Cougar GT boasts an original 390. original four speed and original interior. We believe the miles to be original as well. This Cougar has had the benefit of a high quality paint job in an eye grabbing Grabber-Blue. This Cougar has had some minor work done to the engine bay beyond the overall conditioning of the bay to be more cleanly. Lifters. cams etc. have been added though we held back to keep it as close to OEM as possible. (See Engine Bay Photos)
The undercarriage has been completely replaced. the wheels are custom with the modification being for the front wheels which have a modified center-plate allowing for a wider front tire which drastically improves the ride.
Overall this Cougar is a fine example of a high quality driver. All it needs is several tanks of gas and it could drive from here in Washington to California as it sits!
