For Sale: 1972 Mercury Cougar in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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!
