1973 Mercury Cougar XR-7

Car History

The fully restored 1973 Mercury Cougar XR-7 we have here at Adventure Classics is a true vintage muscle car with its V8 engine, 4-speed transmission, and sinister black paint.

It was originally painted in Light Yellow Gold but has been repainted that sinister black now. If you want a rare-car, especially a 0ne-Of-One, then the breakdown of this XR-7 is amazing as it shows.

60,929 1973 Cougars were made, 35,110 were Cougar XR-7 2-door hardtops, 2,485 came with the 351-4V V8 engines, 260 of these had the 4-speed, 5 of them painted Light Yellow Gold with Medium Ginger Leather Bucket Seats, 3 equipped with the AM/8-Track Stereo Radios, 2 with air conditioning, and 1 produced with a Ginger � Vinyl Roof. Our Vin #3F93Q544811 is that Cougar. One-Of-One!

Engine & Drivetrain

Under the hood is Ford's famous 351-4V cubic-inch V8 engine that looks terrific and as new with the blue painted engine, intake, air cleaner assembly, and valve covers, air conditioning, and all the rest of the factory looking accessories as well as sitting in a restored, painted, detailed, and clean engine compartment.

The V8 inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor out the factory cast iron exhaust headers and the dual exhaust system and it fires up easily, idles smoothly, runs strong, and drives great.

It has great drivability with the 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, BF Goodrich Radial TA tires mounted on the great looking mag wheels.

Interior

The ginger interior features the restored factory high-back leather bucket seats with the Cougar logo embossed in them, matching ginger rear seat, carpet, headliner, and dash all have a like-new appearance.

There are great vintage details, including the wood-like trim, center console housing the 4-speed shifter and clock, full round gauge package with large speedo and tach, AM/8-Track Stereo Radio, air conditioning, floor mats, great door panels and headliner.

Exterior

Our Cougar has been repainted and is now a triple-black 1970s classic.

The paint is stunning as is the bright work, angular hood leading to the waterfall grille, shining chrome bumpers, the flying buttress c-pillar, premium black vinyl half-roof.

The doors shut solid; the body is straight, and the gaps are even. These Cougars not only have a more luxurious appearance but a muscle car attitude with the mag wheels, hardtop profile, and large dual exhaust tips.
