1967 MERCURY COUGAR XR-7 for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.1) based on 439 votes
 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. Clear Nevada Title. I believe this is a 289 motor. It has a C4 automatic 3 speed transmission. It is an A/C car but the compressor is gone. The car was painted burgundy 2 years ago. Base coat. clear coat. Problem is after the car was taken from the paint shop to the upholstery shop by my interior guy. he cleaned the car after installing the factory correct top. Top came out like the factory did it. He called and told me the paint was "tiger-striped". Which I found out meant the base coat was not applied fully. To make matters worse. the body shop cleared the base coat. I told the upholstery guy not to re-do the interior. that I'ld be down to pick it up as is.  But saying I was bummed out about the paint is an under statement. Apparently this was one of the last cars a (I thought). reputable body and paint shop in Las Vegas did prior to closing their doors. It was about 2 weeks from paint to top replacement that I got the car home. When I went down to the body shop. they had a new address where they moved to posted. Yeah right!! They are gone.  The headliner is in great shape. carpet looks original but the door panels and seats will need repair.   Since then the hood has been removed and the underneath has been smoothed and 2 K primed & ready for paint.   The door jambs have been 2 K primed and painted base coat only. The engine compartment was partly primed and painted but not completed. I haven't found the person to finish the job. I'll research the numbers on the engine and vin as soon as possible. I just don't have time now. If there are ANY specific questions you folks have. Please get back to me and that info will become a priority for me to get. The carb is a Holley and it has been rebuilt. The water pump is new as is the almost complete front end suspension. The front end needs to get to the alignment shop. The mechanic who did the front end replacement. also did the front end of the motor. He said the crank was "degreed". he flushed out the motor. the car has roller rocker lifters and some kind of RV cam. He thought it was a Hi-Po motor but said they came in mustangs not cougars. The aluminum radiator has been rebuilt. New thermostat and gasket. transmission filter and seal. ignition switch. belts. wires. plugs. valve cover gaskets & fuel filter. I have both bumpers. they are driver quality. The rims are aftermarket and the tires are ok. 195-65R 15. I would have them replaced prior to any speed driving. I have the headlight metal inserts painted along with the front cougar grill assembly. The car drove decent and the lights all worked prior to when the restoration began 1-1 1/2 ago.  The front end-alignment should be completed prior to any driving under speed.  
Here is some of the info on the plates:   The plate on the driver's door reads: 7F93C638626
Below those #s are these:                  65B X 6D 13U 32 0 W
7= 1967   F=Dearborn MI  93=XR7  C=289 2V  Last Six #s Are Unit Numbers
65B=2 dr hardtop buckets  X=(exterior paint) Maroon Metallic  6D=(interior color) Red Vinyl is what they call it. it's looks more like maroon then red!  13U=Date Code I think this means Jul 13th?  32=District Code Cincinati. Ohio  0=Axle Code I couldn't find a decoder for this?  W=Automatic C-4 Transmission.
  There is another plate located on the passenger side up by the radiator grille:
7F93C638626  65B  X  243
6D    AC           VR  PARCH
I haven't found a place to decode these so far.
