This 1968 Mercury Cougar is a great V8-powered classic that also
has some distinctive premium features you want in a Merc -
including power windows. The result is a coupe that's very vintage
and also quite distinct.
Even from a distance, you can recognize the quality of the
fundamentals in this coupe. The body panels look crisp; the chrome
is complete and shining; and the hallmark hidden headlight front
end is distinctly sharp. So it knows how to hold up the elegance
you want in an upper-level Mercury. But there's also something more
here. This one loves to have a hint of the classic cruiser
attitude. You see it in the competition-style American Racing Torq
Thrust wheels. And the paint is the factory-correct Aqua Metallic.
It has an aged-in style you'd see in a Saturday night cruiser that
was out in the 1970s, and it even has plenty of custom pinstriping
to back up that feeling. So while the price leaves room in your
budget for upgrades/updates, there's also something quite fun about
how the full package is presented right now.
The cruiser attitude continues inside. But where the exterior does
it with vintage style, this one gives you the right upgrades.
Modern front bucket seats, a center console with cup holders, and a
fully upgraded stereo with large speakers and Bluetooth - they all
give this a great anytime driver feeling. You even have power
windows so that you can take down all the glass without ever
leaving the driver's seat. Plus, this is a factory air conditioning
car, and so you can get it serviced if you feel like staying
extra-cool while showing off the pillarless hardtop profile. You'll
find that the derails keep this interior feeling quite classic, but
everything from the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel to the
brighter courtesy lights give this the feeling of a thoughtfully
This was born a C-code coupe, and the engine bay really shows off
an honest and correct presentation of the 289 cubic-inch V8. It has
a cool look of originality, right down to the tags. But you can
also see this one has received the right maintenance, including a
newer alternator and wires. It's a strong-running powerhouse, and
you take proper control with a three-speed manual transmission.
Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs uphold the
reputation of an easy cruising Cougar.
This is a true classic with some nice upgrades, and it's available
now for an obtainable price. Don't let this deal slip away. Call
