This car is in the XR7-G registry VIN 8F93F567426.   Black cherry & black leather interior.   302 V8.   Easier on gas and easy to maintain with plenty of power.   The front end has been completely rebuilt along with the power steering cylinder control.   Transmission rebuilt. engine has medium rise intake.   Car is noted in the registry as a low option "G" car.   It was built with drum brakes and I have converted fronts to correct '68 disc.   All the "G" components are there.   New rear springs. starter. brakes. vinyl top & front seats.   The XR7-G project  was assigned to Shelby Automotive.  Because all XR7-G consoles have a sunroof switch it could be assumed that all cars were originally intended to have a sunroof. however internal Shelby documents show that there were cars ordered both with and without sunroofs. This is one of approximately 188 "G" cars without a sunroof.   Less issues to deal with as they present a host of problems themselves.   Aftermarket radio and speakers installed.   Owned for over 7 years

Good running and driving cat.   It does have some rust coming through on lower doors . rear quarters were not done well around wheel lip and shows previous rust inside trunk edge.   Needs attention cosmetically to realize its full potential.   Solid frame and underneath

Nice opportunity to acquire a sought after Cougar with great color combo that you can drive and enjoy or take some time and address the paint and body.

Additional photos available upon request.
