Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this rare sight to see a 1980 Mercury Cougar XR7. The Mercury Cougar underwent an extensive redesign this year, shifting away from the Torino/LTD II chassis towards the smaller Ford Fox platform, sharing a 108-inch wheelbase and body panels with the redesigned Thunderbird. In another change, only the Cougar XR7 personal luxury coupe was carried over from 1979, temporarily marking the discontinuation of a full range of Cougar body styles. This Cougar has a 5.0-liter V8 with a 4-speed automatic. The carburetor has been rebuilt. It is newly painted and has a beautiful shine. The landau roof that is a significant contrast to the white paint. The vinyl roof is in great shape. This interior is as you can find in 1980 with a red vinyl interior. The odometer reads 57,294 which is actual mileage. The A/C works like a new car. This is a great quality example of a 1980 Mercury Cougar XR7 and your garage would be all the better to have it. The features include AC, AM/FM Radio, Cruise Control, Manual Sunroof, Lumbar Support, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Radial Tires, Power Brakes, Power Steering and Aluminum Alloy Wheels.

More than a few parts went into Mark’s beloved Mercury
Pick of the Day is a car driven less than 2,200 miles in 4 decades
Mercury Cougar was Ford Mustang’s higher-achieving but less-successful sibling.
This historic vehicle was purchased at a Barrett-Jackson Auction, where it was the Hagerty Fantasy Car Bid of the Day.
At first glance, this great-looking 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 coupe seemed like the kind of low-mileage survivor that spent most of its life hanging out in the garage.
When is a classic Ford Mustang not a Mustang? When it is a Mercury Cougar. The Mercury Cougar was a more luxurious version of the Mustang and offered a nicer interior.
I am the second owner of this car purchased in 1976 from a retired Air Force colonel who had been stationed at Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
Prices may continue to soar at collector car auctions, but the June report of the Hagerty Market Rating sustained its largest decline in the past 14 months.
