1970 Mercury Cougar


    1970 Mercury Cougar XR7

    Thanks for stopping by to take a look at one very cool 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7.  This Cougar is a 1 owner Southern California beauty.  She is very original but carries some modern updates as well.  Let’s check it out!



    Muscle cars are drying up fast!  Tens of thousands have been exported. Many have become jewels in vast collections that are never driven and 30 years ago, many went to the crusher.   Five decades down the road, finding a nice canvas for your art can be tough.  We purchased this Cougar from the grandson of the original owner and commissioned a sympathetic restoration.  Yes, we did vary from the original Light Ivy Yellow color palette.


    This was a typically optioned Cougar XR7.

    • The 351 Cleveland V8, 2V is OEM stock and runs excellently
    • Factory Air Conditioning  (somewhat rare in Southern California)
