1967 Mercury Cougar XR7
Why This Vehicle is Special
The 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 like the one we have here at Skyway Classics was the sporty car Mercury built after seeing the success of Ford's Mustang.
They were very different cars because the Cougar has a unique body and interior and ours has been kept to an almost all original condition like it just drove off the showroom floor. Our Cougar was the upscale XR-7, which debuted halfway into 1967.
Our Cougar has what appears to be the original 289 cubic inch V8 with the Ford Blue paint on the engine, aluminum grooved Mickey Thompson valve covers, factory blue air filter with factory 289 decal still on it, power steering, factory exhaust system, air conditioning, power brakes, and all sitting in a clean factory stock looking engine compartment, and all backed by a C4 3-speed automatic transmission known for its durability.
The 1967 rides on steel wheels with factory styled hubcaps with whitewall tires on a solid chassis with upgraded shocks.
The 1967 Cougar has a bright red finish in good condition showing off the long hood/short deck two-door hardtop, the only body style available in the Cougar's first two years of production. The Cougar looks elegant and sculpted with crisp fenders, upturned bumper edges, all the great chrome, and the quad headlamps hidden behind split grilles and sequential tail lamps behind.
The interior looks great as it did back in 1967. It has black leather bucket seats, optional center console, chrome gearshift, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, factory steering wheel, and power brakes. Our Cougar was the upscale XR-7 which and featured a wood-grained dashboard with matching steering wheel, competition-style instrumentation and sporty toggle switches and leather seating surfaces.
This 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 has all the performance of the Mustang, but in a more sophisticated, luxury-oriented, and mature package. It looks factory original and if you are seeking a hard to find classic pony car with European styling, then you should come see our 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7.
