The Mercury Cougar was not instantly recognized by the MoPar crowd
or the GM aficionados as any serious competition, but once it
gained some momentum it was off to the races for this Retro Chic
For consignment, a consignor stated a barn find and rust-free shell
(our photos show varying degrees of invasive rust on the body,
undercarriage, and unibody), of a 1970 Mercury Cougar. If you have
a Cougar with rust, then this roller could be a match made in
heaven. Found in Kansas, it has no interior, no trimmings and no
engine, just the body and the consignor states that the convertible
top mechanism is believed to be all there. Also, in the trunk is
the heater and A/C unit which seems to be all there but you'll have
to give it the once over. Stainless trimmings for the wheel wells
and rockers are amazingly still present. It rolls around with some
difficulty as the steering column is not connected to the steering
mechanism. The wheels are Keystone Scot Mag Wheels.
With the right needs this car could be your answer. These Cougars
were a nifty designed sleeper muscle car from the late 60's and
early 70's, and this one has no rust, but nothing else to go along
with the no rust! Add in that this is a fairly rare version of 1970
Mercury history, (hint, it's not an XR-7).
