1968 Mercury Cougar XR7G
So I am thinking of selling my 68 XR7 G. It is an X code car with tilt, ac am/8-track, 3.00 equa-lock axle etc.
The adventure started when I bought the car in 2005 from Cascade classics. It was in a bad accident back in the eighties so it had to have extensive repair work.We started at the frame shop with a new front clip from West Coast Classic cougars. Don helped me find a front clip with similair options. During this portion of the work we replaced the rear floor pan on the driver side.
The car was then sent for diping to remove the paint and remaining rust. Turns out the driverside quarter was replaced some time in the past . The passenger quarter had a few small holes as did the wheel house so bad to Don's I went to picked up two quarter panels and wheel houses. They were both installed right up to the roof line so there is no vissible seam.
I was lucky that I picked up a second basket case in Colorado that had a good front valence and mirror. The car has all the key parts, included are a set of custom center caps reproduction wheel center cap stickers, I also picked up some dash emblems,steering wheel emblem, pillar emblems and headlight emblem. The parts car also had a good G horn. Jeff Ruhloff made me a set of hood pins with lanyards and trim plates. The G hood scoop does need a bit of work to be finished.
Now after painting the car in 2008 I had a misshap during transport. The trunk lid came loose and chipped up the trunk opening. I had the trunk lid fixed but the shell still has some paint damage. The hood also has a chip of paint of the driver's side of the hood.
The car has new front upper and lower control arms and springs. The console is in good condition. The parts are packaged into bins so it is difficult to take pictures of all the items that come with the car.The engine Vin matches the car but I have not checked the transmission as I forgot where to look.
As for price I am looking for $22,500 US firm for the car. I have close to 30k into the body and paint alone and while it still needs some paint repair the tough part has been completed. Please private message me if you are interested. I would also take a 1967/8 xr7GT as trade. I am looking for a nice clean car that I can jump in and drive and enjoy.
'68 Project - major work completed
This is a completely rust free car that has been stored indoors for the last 15 plus years. The body has already been professionally worked and has been sealed. That work was performed by the best automotive restoration shop in SW Washington. The engine and the transmission have already been rebuilt. The engine is a stock 230 HP 302 cu in that functions perfectly with the factory optioned stock Holley 4 barrel. This was the first year the 302 engine option was ever offered in the Cougar. The transmission is a floor shifted 3 speed automatic. Following a long rest he engine was recently started and ran for 15 to 20 minutes and it performed flawlessly. Afterward it didn't leak one drop of antifreeze, oil or transmission fluid. The inside of the valve covers are very clean as expected. I have had this car on the lift and have inspected it thoroughly. There isn't any rust to be found anywhere on the car including every floor pan and the trunk deck. It has the original bucket seats, console and padded dash all in good shape. No vinyl top...ever - therefore no rust problems.
The car comes with new weatherstripping, front and rear window seals and some new body trim pieces. All engine components are present and function as expected. The radiator is in perfect condition. The exhaust dual system is in great condition. Door panels are in great condition. It has tinted glass. The interior and exterior components are in the trunk. Steering is tight.
Because the pre-paint body work has been finished and the engine and transmission already rebuilt, the expensive major costs have been completed. If this car is finished properly it should be worth $20,000 plus.
The '67 Cougar was Motor Trend Magazine's "Car of the Year" and the '68 was an improved model.
Cougar was Mercury's Pony Car. It was marketed as a luxury car (which it is) as not to compete with the Mustang which was marketed as a sports car.
West Coast Classic Cougar located in Salem and is an excellent local source for reproduction parts and information.
The car is located near the Clark County Fairgrounds - Exit 9 off I-5 north of Vancouver, WA. I am retired and home most everyday.

68 Cougar for sale
I am selling my 68 Cougar. It has it's flaws but it is a good car and it still turns heads when I drive it around town. I do have it listed on bismanonline.com in ND. The ad lists all of the work I have done. The car runs great. It is an every day driver that would be a good starting point for anyone looking for a good project car. I would say the top priority to fix would be the vinyl roof which I have. It does have some minor rust around the rear fender wells but I don't think it is that bad. I can also send pictures by text or email if you are interested.
