This one-owner 1969 Mercury Cougar is powered by a 351ci V8 that sends power to the rear wheels through an FMX automatic transmission. The car is still painted the correct factory maroon color with the correct maroon vinyl interior. This example features air conditioning, manual brakes, and a new white vinyl top, and has been modified with an Edelbrock carburetor.

About the model

Mercury introduced the Cougar for the 1967 model year. The first generation Cougar was a line of muscle cars based on the Ford Mustang. Initially, the Cougar was introduced as a two-door hardtop, but in 1969, a convertible version was added. The first generation Cougar was offered in standard and XR-7 trim levels and featured the Cougar Eliminator as its most notable variant. A wide range of V8 engines were fitted to the Cougar, with the most notable being the 428 Cobra Jet. Production of the first-generation Cougar ended in 1970, and the Second Generation Mercury Cougar replaced the model.
