"The 1968 Mercury Cougar attempted to capitalize on the success of its 1967 counterpart. Sales remained strong for the 1968 Mercury Cougar at about 110,000 units.

Side marker lights were added per federal decree, as was a dished, three-spoke steering wheel with prominent safety hub, replacing the flat single-bar 1967 Mercury Cougar design."
