Description for Mercury Cougar 1969

1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 “BLACK CAT” This BLACK CAT combines the comfort and luxury features of the legendary XR7 with the performance look of the Eliminator. Yes. this is a beautiful 1969 Cougar XR7 dressed in her factory black on black and is an attention getter. This is a 2 owner car out of California. Built on January 29. 1969 at the Dearborn plant and sold to the original owner on February 14. 1969 at Townsend Lincoln Mercury in San Diego. California. This rust free and accident free car remained in southern California until the owner sold her in 2003 to a collector in Florida. The car received a cosmetic restoration in 2004-2005 with one repaint to the original black base coat/clear coat and retains the original luxury leather interior. The original owner did in fact ordered this luxury featured car with "radio delete" but changed his mind upon arrival and had the dealership install AM/FM Stereo. During restoration the vinyl top was removed to provide a much cleaner and desirable look. In addition. an Eliminator hood scoop and rear spoiler were added as it just looks right. Take a look underneath and in the trunk as this car is that nice. The car is powered by her original 351W engine and upgraded now with 4 barrel carburetor and matted to rare 3-speed manual transmission. According to the Deluxe Marti Report only 438 XR7 were built with this engine/transmission combination and only 284 were black exterior with black leather interior. This car has been driven to local and national car shows over the past 10 years and it is a pleasure to drive with the ideal gearing ratio for cruisin. It starts. runs and drives great so get in and take this one home!Send me an email or give me a call if you have any questions. 704-288-1967 (Greg @ Classic Auto Rides)
