For Sale: 1968 Mercury Cougar in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Mercury Cougar mixes style, V8 power, and vintage distinction in a desirable cruising package. So rarely will you find a classic coupe that lets you stand out instantly that's also priced so affordably.

The Mercury Cougar was the Mustang's rarer and more luxurious cousin, and it carries that distinction nicely. The paint was upgraded to Diamond Blue later in life, and this light color gives it a radiant gloss. The paint is part of a total package that shows off this well-respected classic. So as you look it all over, take notice of how the body panels still retain the unique and crisp lines that were exclusive to the Cougar. Plus, the Cougar's hidden headlights and matching grille are more Lincoln than pony car. And the black vinyl roof and matching black pinstripe are pure '60s premium. Plus, there are great brightwork details, like the form-fitting chrome bumpers and the bright factory wheel covers. This even came with the cool sequential taillights.

The upgrade to the light blue exterior was smart, because it goes nicely with the tones of the all-blue interior. This has a nice original-style feel, including the bucket seats, door panels, and full trim. Plus, the factory dual-spoke steering wheel has an artful look with the Cougar logo. And its two-tone presentation goes nicely with the dash. But you'll also notice one especially nice upgrade with a modern AM/FM stereo that includes Bluetooth. This was even a factory air conditioning car, and most of the major components come with the sale.

1968 was the year Ford's now famous 302 cubic-inch V8 really took over as the powerful and stout motor from the big blue oval. So it's great to see one looking good in the engine bay with its mesh air grabber and Ford Racing valve covers. Plus, you have some nice upgrades like a four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and a newer stainless dual exhaust with Cherry Bomb mufflers. And this Cougar is ready for cruising with great driving features, like C4 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.

This Cougar is proper Ford power with extra distinction. And it's all offered now for quite an obtainable price. Call now!
