Description for Mercury Cougar 1979

They are only original once. In recent years, car collectors have increasingly valued unrestored, unmolested, original cars still in good condition. Often called survivor cars, these are examples that have typically accrued few miles and have been well maintained and cared for. They may have a few blemishes and wear the patina of their history but have never been taken apart and put back together. The vast majority of vehicles that were not high end expensive cars, were used up... and tossed away. Very few remain today still with their original paint and interior and in good running mechanical condition. Here is one of those rare examples. This fourth generation Mercury Cougar in XR7 personal luxury coupe form was the direct counterpart to the Ford Thunderbird of the same year. This bit of Ford Motor Company history survives here in this great well maintained example. Although the odometer only registers five digits, we believe the indicated 66,950 miles are most likely actual. Whether you are a Ford / Mercury fan or just into really neat collectible cars of the seventies, this XR7 represents an inexpensive entry into world of collector cars. It is ready to drive and enjoy.
