Built out of the Dearborn plant in March of 1969, this matching-numbers example is in exceptional condition and is one of only 4,024 XR7 convertibles ever produced.
Presenting in Raven Black over a Saddle Levant Leather interior and an olive-green soft top, this Cougar has been beautifully maintained by its previous owners. The paintwork and interior are excellent, while the soft top looks near-new. Beautifully finished with a wooden-accented dash and its iconic hidden headlights, this Cougar would suit any collector.
Optioned from factory with the desirable 351 4V V8, this Mercury delivers 335 horsepower to the rear wheels via a Merc-O-Matic transmission. It is in excellent mechanical condition and remains a pleasure to drive.
Accompany this vehicle are multiple previous Californian and Australian registration certificates, factory spare keys, import documentation, and receipts for work completed. Ready to be driven from the showroom floor and enjoyed, this timeless classic would make a perfect addition to any garage.
The introduction of the Cougar in 1967 gave Mercury its own ‚Äúpony car‚Äù, which would go on to be the performance icon of the Mercury name for decades to come. Designed with a more ‚ÄúEuropean‚Äù flavor in mind, the focus of the Cougar was an ideal combination of luxury and performance. The most luxurious of these cars was the XR7, showcasing several factory options over the base model and taking design inspiration from the E-type Jaguar and fashion designer Pauline Trigere. The appeal of the Cougar has not faded over the years and good examples are extremely desirable today.
