Drive Type: RWD
Sub Model: XR7
Trim: 2 Door
Lincoln City, Oregon, United States
Matching numbers 1973 Cougar XR7 with a 351 Cleveland.
The vehicle is by no means fully restored as it needs a few things but read on to find out why this is a steal of a deal!
I am all about being upfront and honest so that people
No worries I have the CLEAN, UNBRANDED title in hand. This Classic piece of American Muscle shows 83k miles on the Odometer and anyone who knows anything about older vehicles knows that the Odometer can "roll over" meaning the vehicle COULD technically have 183k miles but THIS vehicle was stored for 9 1/2 years so there is a very very strong chance that it truly is 83k miles.
What I have done since I got the car:
Brand New Fuel Pump
Brand New Accelerator pump gasket
Brand New Battery
Brand New Fuel Filter
Brand New Plugs
Brand New Plug Wires
Brand New Distributor Cap
I also have a newly ordered (not installed)XR7 Rear Seat (pictured)
As pictured I also have the Original American Racing Wheels.
Factory AC and Heat BOTH work great!!
The TLC needed for full restoration if desired:
The Brakes need to be done, they are functional at best.
The front seats should be reupholstered (it's a matter of preference)
It also obviously needs paint.
There is Very Very minimal body damage and it is all on the front of the body on the driver side front corner panel which, as you can see, is almost un-noticeable.
Lastly it needs a carpet kit.
A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.
The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.
