Description
 
Nicely built 302 V-8, automatic transmission, independent coil spring front suspension, rear leaf spring suspension with traction control bars, 111” wheelbase Performance-modified 302 V-8 Straight panels throughout One of the nicest looking of all the Cougar body styles, this 1968 XR-7 Hardtop will make the next lucky owner a wonderful cruiser as-is, or could easily be the foundation for a complete restoration. The body is straight and has never been hit, with great panel gaps, and mechanically, it runs great and has just 1,500 miles on the engine. The paint is admittedly not 100%, and could use refreshing at some point, but still turns heads from 10 feet. It has very good chrome, a nice interior, and all original glass, with the correct 302 V-8 engine engine that has been expertly built and features a slew of go-fast components. It’s a car that can be enjoyed immediately, and could easily be the star of any local car show with just a little TLC. Starting with a correct 1968 302 block, it was bored out to .060 over stock, and loaded with TRW Power Forged pistons and all reciprocal assemblies are completely balanced and blueprinted. The block was studded with ARP studs, Competition Cams chrome-moly pushrods installed, and Fel-Pro graphite injected gaskets were used. New trick flow Twisted Cylinder heads were utilized, with Harland Sharpe Roller Rockers, an Edelbrock RPM Intake Manifold and matching performance camshaft. An Edelbrock double-roller timing chain was used, and it is all covered up by Ford Motorsports dress-up valve covers and air cleaner. The engine is fed by a Holly 600 CFM 4 barrel carburetor, with K & N filters, and a complete MSD ignition system and an aluminum billet distributor. The engine breathes through a custom headers and a 2 ¼” X-pipe Pypes exhaust system from the headers on back. It starts easily, runs strong, sounds great, and is really fast. Dyno tested last year, the revised 302 now pushes out 375 HP. Nice enough to enjoy as is, or the perfect starting point for a full restoration, this car is a wonderful entry point into the world of great muscle cars of the 60’s. Channel your inner Dan Gurney and enjoy the pony car that is just a bit more luxurious than any Mustang.
