1986 Mercury Cougar
Its restless, its civilized, its challenging, its serene…its Cougar, and it's like nobody else's car. Queue Farrah Fawcett to hug the cat on the roof! “The Sign of the Cat” was the ad slogan that brought Mercury back to life in the late 1960's
This is truly a time warp car with just one lady owner, gives the appearance as being just off the showroom floor. Always garaged and showing just over 21,000 documented miles, try to find a nicer example of the Mercury brand. All original and oddly so, a ride in this car and you'll swear you smell that new car smell.
Painted in a shade of tan with matching vinyl landau roof with accented pinstripe, the exterior appearance is finished off with a beautiful set of wire wheel covers with like new white wall tires. A front chromed grille that mimics a Mercedes-Benz, and in beautiful chrome. All appearing in showroom condition, all original.
2 tone tan and dark brown velour cloth buckets in front and a bench in back. Tan and brown vinyl mix to create a center. Console that starts in front of the back seat and works its way forward to the two toned dash. For dash vertical surfaces, add a bit of woodgrain, glowing instrumentation, and very clean dash top, a sweet headliner, air conditioning, power windows, locks, power seats, mirrors, cruise control, AM/FM cassette player, and tilt wheel, and you're like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Powered by Ford's 5.0-Liter V8 and an automatic transmission, there is plenty of performance offered by this sport coupe.
Some surface rust but otherwise very stable with nary a hint of any structural damage. Definitely a garaged, low mileage look to this underside.
This 1986 represents itself as new in every way, and with super low mileage, and showroom condition exterior and interior, a car that is almost too good to be true. Now I know you will be rolling your eyes after this next sentence, but it is documented and literally true…driven by an elderly lady to go to church, and the grocery store, and the occasional jaunt to the shore house in NJ. This car comes with its original window sticker, all maintenance records, and owners manual.
