A professional Cougar restorer cited in a letter to the owner “---Due to the rarity of this car and the options listed. plus the listing below this car is probably worth between $38. 00 and $45. 00.   As an example of those items and estimated prices not included in the published list are: the factory sunroof: $2. 00; the tilt steering wheel: $2. 00; plus the front and rear valances: $500; elevating the value of the car by an additional: $4. 00. to between $42. 00 and $49. 00--” “This information was derived from two sources; “Cougar by the Numbers”. and the “Marti Report” for this VIN number”
