Description
 
All Original, Window Sticker, Less than 1,700 Actual Miles from New

351 cid overhead valve eight-cylinder engine rated at 168 horsepower, Cruise-O-Matic transmission and power assisted brakes; wheelbase: 112.1”

1967 saw the introduction of the new Cougar as Mercury’s bridge between the Thunderbird’s luxury and the Mustang’s performance. It also represented the top of the line for Mercury and could be ordered with an endless list of options.

This Cougar is in excellent original condition having been driven only 1,600 miles since new, some 33 years ago! The original owner purchased the car for his wife. She did not like the “rim-blow” steering wheel because she would honk the horn unintentionally and consequently refused to drive the car. So the gentleman decided to keep the XR-7 as a long-term investment. It was purchased new in New York and has always been garage kept. With the exception of the battery, oil filter, and gas tank, this vehicle is 100% original. A new correct gas tank was installed a few months ago because bacteria had accumulated in the old tank due to stale gasoline.

This pristine Cougar is equipped with the legendary 351 Cleveland V-8 engine, leather bucket seats, tilt steering, rim-blow steering wheel, factory tachometer and full gauges, AM/FM radio, sport console with clock, dual racing mirrors, and the original spare tire. The original owner ordered two sets of wheels and tires new. The ralley wheels are fitted to the car and the original deluxe hubcaps and wheels all go with the car also. Documentation included with the purchase of the car includes the window sticker and Marti report.

It was Ziebarted (undercoated) the day it was purchased new and is probably the lowest mile, original ’73 Cougar XR-7 in existence. It runs and drives like a new car and is truly a Mercury collector’s dream. There is no doubt that this Mercury is a true collectable with a stunning low mileage history and unmistakable quality.
