Description:

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 Competition Orange with black 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 muscular and every bit the high-profile muscle car that Mercury wanted it to be. 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 shiny orange 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 Elininator decals 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 leather bucket seats are from a newer Mustang, yet they look right in the vintage cat, and the door panels have been restored to like new condition with carpets obviously installed not too long ago. An aftermarket tach has been added to the steering column, and options include factory A/C has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant and uses a new compressor. The original AM/FM radio is gone, replaced by a Kenwood AM/FM/cassette unit sometime in the past and it sounds great. There are no surprises in the trunk, either, where Ford continued to use the top of the gas tank as the bottom of the trunk, but that also means there isn''t any place for rust to hide. Power for the big cat comes from a 351 Cleveland V8, which is a perfect fit in the Cougar''s engine bay. A traditional Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor gives the engine bay the proper 1970 look. Handsome polished 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 ignition components appear to be newer, and everything works as it should. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission spins the original 9-inch rear and there''s a great-sounding dual exhaust system whose tips are just barely visible beneath the rear valence, again emphasizing the Cougar''s subtle muscularity. An beautiful set of 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels really set off the orange bodywork, and the staggered 225/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear 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 plenty of both. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
