1967 Mercury Cougar 460ci V8 4bbl

Description

The Cougar is quite different from the Mustang in the realm of styling. Most noticeable was the front end "electric shaver" split Grille treatment with concealed headlights and this particular car has upgraded electric actuation and LED lighting that leads to the reverse scooped hood. At the rear, it came with T-Bird sequential taillights. These taillights have had their sequencers removed but still shine brightly. Deep end of the pool sinister midnight black covers the panels which show some usage, inclusion and cracks, particularly at the molded in rear quarter caps but all else is straight and smooth. All chrome and brightwork has been fully blacked out and the door handles have been shaved. Dual exhaust with blacked out tips peek out the back at the bottom of the chassis. Black with polished lip 17 and 18-inch Ridler wheels give this cat sure footing along with staggered size and width blackwall radial rubber. A shout out to the trunk with its plaid finished mat and relocated battery. Meow!!
Swinging one of the two doors open, we are met with more black in the form of lowback bomber style buckets with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters. A rear bench, providing room for 3, fills the rear of the cabin and all of the seating appears as new. This car does not sport the XR-7 package so we see the standard clean black padded dash giving way for a black steel lower section and twin round gauge pods in front of the driver. These gauges are some of the few deviations from the all black theme with their silver faces and red pointers. An aftermarket tachometer sits to the left just above the slides for the heater/defroster controls and to the right are a series of warning lights. A late model General Motors steering column fronts the dash and gives us the much appreciated tilt feature. In the center of the dash are ducting outlets and an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player and just below are a trio of white-faced gauges. Medium loop black carpet floods the floors and hanging above is a tight black headliner. Finishing off the interior tour are black vinyl door panels with a vertically stitched center and bright chrome for the door actuators and window cranks. These panels present in good shape but do show some wrinkling of the material, especially around the edges.
Under the scooped hood is the roaring heart and soul of this Cougar. A rebuilt and bored .030 blue painted 460ci V8 now resides between the fenders and with ported C9VE-A heads, its growl is heard for miles. This big mill is topped with an aluminum intake manifold and a Holley 750cfm 4bbl carburetor. Keeping things well dressed are polished and ribbed valve covers along with a matching air cleaner assembly. A 3-speed automatic C6 transmission sends power rearward through a 31 spline Ford 8.8" 3.73 TracLoc pumpkin to boil the hides.
