1971 Mercury Cougar XR7 2 door coupe.

Equipment includes power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, automatic transmission, am radio (works), 351 with 2 bbl carburetor.

This car is usable as-is, but with some minor cosmetic improvements could make a very nice car.  It is complete, but needs a new vinyl top and new door panels. The dash pad is cracked so you may want to do something about it too.  Needs a good cleaning.  Very minimal amount of rust behind the passenger side wheel well.  Has dings, dents, and scrapes.  Overall this is a very solid car.  Trunk floor and floor pans seem good.  Metal under vinyl top is good without any rust issues.

We recently had the following items replaced / maintenance performed on the car: new gas tank, fuel pump, carb has been rebuilt, new plugs, fuel filter, brake rotors and pads, and new headlight dimmer switch.

The turn signals work; however, the left rear signal must be turned on and off manually at the stalk (to make it blink) - sequencer does not work properly.  The right side turn signal / sequencer works fine.  Horn is not working (have not tried to diagnose).  Three of the four hubcaps are included (not shown in photos).

We have taken many pictures of the Cougar but are limited to the number we can include in the listing.  So we do have more - please ask for others.

We have a clear title (in our names) and keys.

Mileage indicated in the listing details is not accurate.

E-mail requests for additional pictures.  (We have lots more photos but are limited to 12 for this listing.)

There is NO SHIPPING for this car unless you as buyer arrange for it via a third party shipper.  This is a running and driving car, but we have not personally driven it any distance so cannot guarantee its roadworthiness.   

Buyer is responsible for all costs of delivery/pick up.  Seller will cooperate as much as possible regarding pickup.   

We are located in Southwest Missouri, within an hour of both Joplin and Springfield, Missouri, near Hwy 60, South of I-44.  The zip code for a town nearby is 65605.

Please remember that your bid is a contract.  $500 down payment due within 3 days of end of auction. (NO PayPal unless arranged in advance.)  50% of purchase price must be paid within 7 days of auction's end.  Balance of payment is due within 14 days of the end of the auction - no exceptions.  Time frame for removal is somewhat flexible, but we'd like to have the car picked up within 30 days.  (Please give us a couple days' notice before pickup.)

Kit Cat: Mercury Cougar makes perfect Bugatti Veyron substitute

Thu, 24 Feb 2011

Bugatti Veyron kit car - Click above for high-res image gallery
If you've got a pulse in your wrist and a snapping brain cell in your head, chances are you wouldn't mind parking a Bugatti Veyron in your garage. But for most mere mortals, scrounging up the cash for a physics-bending piece of 16-cylinder glory would require all sorts of unpalatable tasks. Fortunately for those who want to look the part without having to participate in human trafficking, the kit car universe has stepped in to save the day. All you need is a 1999-2002 Mercury Cougar, a boat load of fiberglass and a little patience.
Oh, and $89,000.

Curtain officially comes down on Mercury as dealers remove signage

Mon, 03 Jan 2011

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.

NHTSA closes rollaway investigation into 1.56M Ford SUVs

Mon, 11 Mar 2013

It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.
