1967 Cougar XR7 GT for Sale

VIN 7F93S605687


This is a genuine S Code factory four-speed car that I have owned since 2009. It’s pretty rare- according to the Marti Report there were only 905 XR7 GT 4-speed cars made- and only 283 with the shoulder harness option.

The car runs very strongly and starts, stops and turns as it should, but it could probably use a new clutch- the present one chatters a bit but doesn’t slip.  The car is completely drivable and reliable, but a bad left leg makes it difficult for me to drive and therefore forces a sale.

A previous owner installed a 3.50:1 positraction rear end.  The original 3.00:1 ring and pinion will go with the car, as will a complete set of new weatherstrip pieces and a replacement passenger window- the original is scratched.  I also will include a Grade A used Westcoast Cougar replacement speedometer and new cable.

The front end (lower control arms, outer tie rods, and power steering components) was rebuilt in 2010.  New timing chain and gear set and a new Holley 670 cfm Street Avenger carburetor 2011. Vintage air conditioning system installed 2012.  New power steering hoses and distributor 2015.  The gas tank and fuel gauge sender were replaced in 2016, along with a repurposed ammeter- it’s now a voltmeter in the original housing.

Overall, this is a #3 car.  It was repainted sometime before I bought it in the original Inverness green color, with a replacement black vinyl top.  The interior has been reskinned in the 6F saddle color.  I believe the seat skins are vinyl, and they’re near-new.  The carpets are good.  The A/C blows cold and all the gauges work, except the speedometer (but the odometer works). 

The headlights open and close as they should and are still vacuum operated.  The sequential turn signals work as well.

I would rate the paint and glass as fair, the chrome and stainless good.  The bumpers are straight.  The TA radials came with the car but still have lots of tread. The car is complete with all trim pieces, etc.

There is some very minor rust damage in the usual areas, but the floors and trunk areas are solid.

I have some replacement parts for the car:

  • ·         Complete weatherstripping set
  • ·         Replacement passenger side window (the one on the car is a bit scratched)
  • ·         Drip mouldings, and the thin chrome strips that go with them
  • ·         Trunk tail light cardboard covers
  • ·         Replacement speedometer and cable
