Ford wanted to gain even more of the market and at the same time appeal to a more refined crowd.

Here we have a '68 Model. You can't help but crack a smile as you approach this slick Cougar. The paint is very charming blue metallic. The paint in in very nice shape and the black vinyl top looks new. The black vinyl interior looks lightly used. As it should as the restoration occurred within the last few years.

The current owner has had it for approx. 4 years, this is an Arizona car and the title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now! Cougars have such large appeal and don't turn up near as often as other pony cars, so they do not last long.
