Let's just call this one Hens Teeth.
This Cougar has seen next to no use since total restoration and is simply stunning. The pictures do a fine job telling the story of this car. If you want to find fault, and I can always find something the gauges are a bit foggy- just not perfect and fresh- that's about it and I'm picky.
For the sake of the fact that we are never going to pretend to be Ford experts I am going to reference the 2007 appraisal we have in our hands that was written by an MCA Gold Card Judge. Some direct quotes- “Concours quality repaint”, “highest standards”, options listed, “Trunk completely restored”, “best, correct pieces”, engine compartment concours restored”, “no corners cut, no expense spared”, “No one has ever seen a Ram Air/ Airconditioned 428 Cobra Jet”, “For years it was believed you couldn't order a factory air with the R-code/Ram Air package because NO ONE HAD SEEN ONE”.
This is that car!!!!!! Appraised in 2007 for $125,000.00 according to many price guides the value of these cars EXPLODED in 2014.
If you have to own the best and the RAREST this would be a great car to fill that order.
All inquiries on this car will be held in the strictest confidence.
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
