Selling a 1969 Cougar Convertible. Originally a MIAMI dealership car, this cars body and underside have been well maintained. Been off road for several years, this Cougar will need only basic maintenance to get back on the road. Only minimal rust areas throughout with a very solid underside. LOTS of good factory features including:
-Factory Whisperaire Air Conditioning
-Factory power top with Glass Backlite
-Original 351 Windsor
-Grant racing steering wheel
Car has had its interior changed out and the exterior was also changed from Medium Emerald, to a Candy Apple Red .. A few XR7 touches added. Top needs replacing and a a few dings and bends in one of the quarters, but body, underside, rockers, this is a solid car. Doors may need the hinges adjusted since its been sitting for quite some time. Needs brake work, and probably newer tires. We fired up the engine and it started first time. Recommend cleaning out the gas tank also. We were starting to do that.
Priced even below the LOWEST NADAGUIDES value (SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE) for quick sale you will have lots of equity upon purchase even at full price.
Sold as-is, how-is with right to inspect. No warranties expressed or implied. $500 deposit due at auction end with balance due within 3 days of auction end. All payments non-refundable. If you need help with shipping, we can provide the lowest price possible for shipping with our contacts at Central Dispatch. Can get the car posted for shipping rate only with NO DISPATCHER RATE. Can help with overseas also.
Bid with confidence on this neat 1969 Cougar Convertible.

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.
The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.
St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
