HIGHLIGHTS: Survivor car! Just one owner since new! Offered for
sale for the first time since 1967! Time-capsule, 289-powered,
two-door Cougar cruiser! Unrestored survivor with one repaint!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1967 Mercury Cougar is in
impressive original condition! With just over what is said to be
100,000 actual miles on this unrestored car, it is looking pretty
good for 55 years old. There are some previous rust repairs visible
underneath the car, as seen in the photos, but when taking into
consideration the age and mileage of this car, plus the fact that
it has never seen a restoration, the condition is impressive
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Cougar received a repaint in its
original color many years ago, and while the paint is showing its
age on the top side of the car, the sides show that this was a
paint job done well when fresh. It currently presents in good
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is the original black
vinyl that is looking surprisingly good for its age! Though some
wear is expected, there are only two notable tears as seen in the
photos which is quite impressive for an original vehicle this age.
The seat condition coupled with the very presentable plastic and
dash conditions shows the care this car has received by its
original (and still current) owner over the years. This car has
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Developed as the Mercury counterpart to the
legendary Mustang, it would be almost disappointing if this little
Cougar didn't have a 289V8 under the hood. Though this Cougar lacks
options such as A/C, power steering, and power brakes, the 289V8 is
a box that was ticked! Per the original owner, the 289 was replaced
with a new shortblock in the late 1970s after the original engine
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The overall originality and known
ownership history! This is a car you just don't see in this kind of
survivor condition anymore.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Though this Cougar remains
unrestored to this day, it isn't 100% factory original, because it
has been driven and enjoyed on a regular basis since it was new. If
you're looking for a super low-mileage example with all OEM Ford
parts, this isn't it.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The brake lights are not currently
operational, however the sequential signals do work!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Survivor cars like this can be
tough to make a decision on what to do with, especially a one-owner
example like this. Sort it out and drive it as-is? Use it as a base
for a full restoration? The choice is yours! No matter what you
have in mind, this Cougar could be a great option!
