Description:

It isn''t fair to think of the Cougar as just Mercury''s Mustang. Instead, take a look at this 1970 Cougar ragtop and you''ll realize that it''s the muscle car for the guy who wants a little luxury and style to go with his horsepower, which is where the Cougar has always been happiest. Handsome convertibles with V8 power aren''t often this affordable, and yes, this is a real code 94 XR-7. Finished in medium red, this XR-7 looks the part it was built to play. Sporty but not flashy, aggressive but not festooned with add-ons and spoilers, it''s the kind of car that gets attention just by being unusual. Like the Mustang, the Cougar grew a bit, but it retains great proportions and crisp character lines that make it clear that there''s very little shared DNA between the two. Look at the sharp crease that runs from the headlights to the rear wheel wells, the raised center section of the hood, and the peaked fender line that runs along the top edge of the bodywork and you''ll see that someone was sweating the details when this one went together. And, of course, there''s the Cougar''s trademark "electric shaver" grille and hidden headlights, unique full-width taillight, and a pair of gorgeous re-chromed bumpers that shine like they''re ready to show. And since this is a solid southern car, rust is a non-issue with doors that fit well and don''t sag. Open those wide doors and you''re treated to an upgraded interior that''s nearly the perfect combination of sport and luxury, kind of like its rival the Buick Riviera. It''s easy to see yourself wearing a suit and heading to work with the top down, but it''s just as easy to envision a trip to the beach in shorts and a T-shirt. The red vinyl upholstery is in great condition, with high-back buckets flanking a woodgrained center console with T-handle shifter. Round gauges for the driver look sporty and include a matching clock on the passenger''s side, and contrast nicely with the square center vents for the factory A/C. It also carries a factory AM/FM radio with speakers in the doors, a woodgrained steering wheel, and all the little stuff looks new, including the sun visors and dash pad. The black convertible top is power actuated and fits quite well, with the trunk carrying a full-sized spare equipped with a vintage whitewall tire. The H-code 351 cubic inch V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor was built for smooth torque, making 250 horsepower and a fairly stout 355 pounds of torque. Upgraded with a brand new dual exhaust system, it sounds the part of a vintage muscle car, not too loud and not too quiet which suits the XR-7 perfectly. The engine bay shows off clean living with Ford Blue paint on the block, original air cleaner, and fresh tune-up parts that ensure it starts easily and hums down the road with a nice V8 burble out back. It''s backed by a C4 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end, and the unibody floor is protected by a light dusting of undercoating that hides nothing but helps noise and sound. Unusual and rare Rallye wheels and trim rings have been fitted, along with a set of 215/70/14 white-letter radials. Representing a ton of value for the money, and arguably more car than a comparable Mustang, this Cougar is both a great bargain and a great deal of fun. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
