Seller's notes: "Gas Gauge does not work. A few years ago I had the float replaced and the gauge worked perfectly. But a couple tears later it stopped working again. I wanted to replace the sending unit but at the time there were no repro parts for this Cougar because of it being an XR7 it needed a special sending unit that was not available."

            Up for sale is my 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7. I have owned this car for the past 14 years. It has always been properly garaged and covered with a high quality car cover. It has only been in the rain one time since I have owned it and never in the snow or on dirt roads. I purchased the Cougar at the Auburn Classic Car Auction on Labor Day weekend Sept. 1999. I bought it from a couple selling the car in the car corral. They were from Elkhart. Indiana and had owned the car since 1993. I drove the Cougar back home to Wixom. Mi. and had no issues with it.
              This Cougar is in excellent original condition. The engine is the original 302 V8 two barrel with 225 hp. I had the engine and the original trans rebuilt in 2006. not because of any problems but because I thought the car deserved it. All parts used were stock parts. No modifications were done. The Cougar's vinyl top and entire interior are original to the car and are in excellent condition. Everything in the interior works. even the original AM FM radio. All glass is original with no dings. scrapes or scratches. Headlight doors open and close properly. Turn signals and tailights work properly. The car has new Coker Red Line tires with new reproduction Mercury wheels. Less than 700 miles on tires and wheels. The Cougar runs and drives great. If you did purchase this car you just get in and start enjoying it!
                When I bought this car in 1999 it still had its original exterior paint. The factory color was pale yellow or as Ford called it. Saxony It had paint loss and a few minor door dings but was a very straight car with no waves. So. in 2004 I decided to have the Cougar repainted in its original color. I used a local body shop near my work because I had seen some of the classics he had already done and they were excellent. They had the car for about 3 months but it sure was worth it. I checked on it all the time. During the sanding process there was found to be no filler and no rust what so ever on the body. Floor pans were also checked and found to be in very good shape with no rust. It is such a good paint job that to this day that the car has no chips. scratches. or other marks in the paint. I had the original front and rear bumpers re-chromed. They still look great. All emblems on the car are original and in excellent condition.
                  This Cougar is sold as is with no warranty expressed or emplyed. If the car is purchased I will expect a deposit of $2000. 00 within 48 hours of the end of the auction with the balance due in 7 days after the auction. If the sale is not. completed within that time frame I choose to keep the deposit. I will accept a certified bank check as payment. The deposit can be made into Paypal.
                    It will be the responsibility of the buyer to arrange transportation for the car. There is a major car transport company in the area and I could help the buyer get in contact with them. If you have any questions e-mail me through my ebay account or call me at 248-760-2064. Remember I live in Michigan which is in the eastern time zone. Thanks for checking out my Cougar. It will make somebody very happy.
