A Mercury is all about being a distinctive and premium classic. So
it's great to have this 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible that
offers a vintage upscale look and plenty of V8 power.
This droptop has quite a stock style, and that's appealing here.
After all, Mercury cars have a certain sleekness to them. So the
red pinstripe running the full length of the car not only looks
nice against the cream paint, but also it highlights the sporty
curve of the profile. We particularly like the '72 Cougar because
this was made before federal regulations dictated bumper design.
That means these chrome kings hug the body and deliver added style.
You see it up front, where the ends look like an extension of the
turn signal lights, and it dips in the center to showcase the
grille. And the rear is an essential piece of the design that even
holds the taillights.
If you like the way the exterior pinstripe looks against the cream
paint, then you'll love the interior color. Red leather always has
a particularly bold style, and there's a very survivor-like
appearance, right down to the Cougar logos embossed in the
seatbacks. It has a both vintage and premium feeling, including
features like the AM/FM/cassette stereo, wood-like accents, and air
conditioning (will need servicing.) Bucket seats, an armrest center
console, and a full gauge package with large speedo and tach make
this feel like a proper driver's classic. Plus, the power windows
and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver's
seat when you want to open this Mercury up to the world.
Under the hood is Ford's famous 351 cubic-inch V8. This is known to
be a hardy motor with a ton of torque. So it runs strong and
delivers the right kind of hustle to get you moving. These were
built to be true cruisers, and so you get nice driving features
like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and
power brakes w/discs up front.
It's nice to find a classic convertible that gives you premium
features and true distinction. So if you recognize the value of
this Cougar XR7, you need to hurry up and call today!
