When Mustangs grow up, they want to be Cougars. With the same long nose, short deck styling as the Mustang, but in a slightly larger, more luxurious package, the Cougar offers grown-up performance for people who like a little luxury with their muscle. Of course, perks like A/C, a vinyl top, and an automatic transmission only help the Cougar''s case, creating a sophisticated muscle car that you can drive every day. Handsomely finished in high gloss black with silver Eliminator-style stripes, the Cougar''s lines are clean and instantly recognizable. From the finned front grille and hidden headlights to the kick-up behind the doors, it looks powerful. Added goodies include the hood scoop and deck lid spoiler, which make the Cougar look like a middleweight boxer in a tuxedo, elegant but ready to rock. The beautifully restored vinyl top fits well and looks great, with no wrinkles or tears in the material. The paint is well applied over super straight sheetmetal, and the black paint reveals that a lot of time was invested in getting everything blocked and flat. All the chrome and trim has been polished up, proper Cougar badges affixed to the quarters, and the full-width taillight is in superb condition. The all-black interior was the most popular choice in 1970, and it still looks awesome today. The seats and door panels have been restored to like new condition, and new carpets were obviously installed not too long ago. The gauges appear to be original, and their condition suggests that this car has always been treated well. An aftermarket tach has been added to the steering column, and the factory A/C has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant. The original AM/FM stereo radio remains in the dash, and for 1970 that was state-of-the-art in in-car entertainment. Even the trunk is nicely finished with a reproduction mat. Power for the big cat comes from a late-model 351W roller block, which is a perfect fit in the Cougar''s engine bay. A traditional Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor delivers the fuel and gives the engine bay the proper 1970 look, while handsome finned aluminum valve covers remind you that this one is Powered by Ford. The engine bay is tidy, but not necessarily detailed for show, which means you won''t be afraid to drive it. Hoses and bright yellow ignition wires appear to be newer, and everything works as it should. Underneath, the chassis is clean and well-maintained, with a great-sounding dual exhaust system whose tips are just barely visible beneath the rear valence, again emphasizing the Cougar''s subtle muscularity. An unusual set of 14-inch gray styled steel wheels really set off the black bodywork, and the 225/70/14 radials completely fill the wheel wells. For those of us who have reached a certain age, a little luxury with your performance is definitely a good thing, and this Cougar delivers. Call today!
