This is a perfect autumn/winter project car. Lots of items included for you to get started and make this your own.

This is an example of an early 1967 Cougar.The original color was lime gold. At some time in its history the color was changed to maroon.I sanded the entire car and applied 4 coats of GM's victory red over4 coats of primer.A mat black racing stripe runs down the center of the hood and trunk lid.The bumpers and grill were blacked out.

Installed is an Edelbrock 289 Performer RPM intake manifold, Holly 4160 4bbl carburetor (an Autolite 4100 carburetor and a Holly 2 bbl carburetor are included along with the original 2 bbl intake manifold).The original distributor (included) was replaced with a modern GM style coil on cap distributor.An MSD 6AL is included but not installed.

The starter and alternator were replaced and have no miles on them.I installed a chrome engine dress up kit.The engine was running strong with the 2 bbl set up.After converting to a 4 bbl I was not able to keep it running.The carb may need tuning or a rebuild.The brakes were completely restored and have fewer than 5,000 miles on them.

The headlight doors were converted from vacuum powered to electric using two electric headlight door motors from a Mazda Protégé.I believe I still have the original vacuum motors and will include them.The clockwork mechanism that operated the sequential turn signals was replaced with a reliable electronic device. The front floor pans were replaced with reproduction floor pans.An auto dimming rear view mirror was installed.

Installation of the replacement headliner needs to be finished. The front low back bucket seats were replaced with high back bucket seats.The rear bench seat was removed and two low back bucket seats are ready to be recovered and installed.The original door panels were removed (and included) and replaced with panels containing the arm rests from a 1987 mustang.The arm rests contain the electric push buttons used to unlock the doors.The door handles were shaved for a sleek appearance and a heavy duty remote door pop kit with two fobs was installed. The instruction page is included.The carpeting was replaced 15 years ago. The front passenger side is showing signs of wear from my wife's high heel shoes.

The neutral safety switch on the outside of the transmission does not work so the car will start in any gear - please make sure it is in park or neutral before attempting to start the car.I installed old school rear shackles on the leaf springs to enhance the traditional 60's muscle car look.The front and rear window trim is included as well as a square style outside rearview manual remote mirror. I'm also including the shop manual. In the trunk at lots of extras including "jewelry."

This car was intended to be a family heirloom when finished but finances force me to sell her before completion.I'd be happy to reply to any questions. Buyer is responsible for shipping.
