Unveiling a classic blend of elegance and muscle, this 1968 Mercury Cougar XR7, dressed in a sophisticated Glacier Blue, brings an era of American automotive design to life.

Highlighting its sporty yet refined character are the black vinyl roof and matching chin and rear spoilers, perfectly balanced with the 15" Cragar wheels. The tires, sized 235/60R15 up front and a more robust 275/60R15 at .....
the rear.

Inside, the Cougar XR7 presents a luxurious yet sporty cabin, featuring black vinyl and cloth bucket seats that blend comfort with durability. The interior is tastefully accented with faux wood trim, adding a touch of sophistication. An aftermarket Dual CD receiver brings modern convenience to this classic ride, while the secondary gauges provide essential information at a glance. The two-fabric combination throughout the cabin offers a tactile contrast, the console shifter and small overhead console enhance the driving experience, making every journey behind the wheel a pleasure. Courtesy and cabin lights ensure visibility and add a welcoming glow to the interior space.

Beneath its polished exterior, this Cougar XR7 is powered by a period-correct 289 V8 engine, blueprinted and balanced with a laundry list of performance upgrades inside, with a C4 automatic transmission. The engine bay features thoughtful upgrades like a QFT 4-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and a Shelby-style Monte Carlo bar, all contributing to its performance. The aluminum radiator with dual electric fans keeps the engine running cool, while the ribbed air cleaner and valve covers add a touch of style. This setup, along with power steering and brakes, provides a driving experience that is both engaging and manageable. The suspension, featuring front coil springs with a shock and sway bar, and rear leaf springs with air shocks, ensures a balanced ride, making it ready to tackle both city streets and open highways with equal aplomb.
