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!
