This 1969 Mercury Cougar mixes style, V8 power, vintage distinction, and proper investments in a desirable cruising package. So rarely will you find a classic coupe that lets you stand out instantly that's also priced so affordably.
The Cougar certainly has an attractive big cat swagger. The styling is Mustang-sized, but it's a little more sophisticated - from the sporty body crease sweeping the profile, to the hidden headlights that were definitely more Lincoln than Ford. A few .....
extra dollops of chrome, including the hallmark sequential tail lights with their chrome surrounds. So this car manages to look both sporting and elegant at the same time. The Dark Aqua Metallic certainly looks right for this dual premium and sporty role that the Cougar represented. It has a good shine and a radiant glow. Plus, a well-done white vinyl roof is the ideal way to announce a 1960s upper-class machine. It's a total package that gives you a premium distinction that also is quite driver-ready.
The exterior blue and white have a tropical feel to it, and so we're glad to see the theme continue with the white interior. And because this is a true driver's car, you have the right high-traffic areas like carpeting and steering wheel done in black. It has been updated correctly for you to enjoy more time behind the wheel. This includes an upgraded cup holder center console, more recently reupholstered front bucket seats, and an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth for better driving music. And while this has the right updated feel, it never loses the vintage feeling. It's in the details like the working dome lights, hallmark four gauge layout, and plenty of wood-like trim.
Power for the big cat comes from a 351 cubic-inch V8. It's an ideal motor for torque and stoutness. Plus, we have a receipt for almost $1,500 from 2020 documenting detailed maintenance on the motor and transmission. That is why it fires up nicely, idles well, and the three-speed auto shifts smoothly. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide Cooper Cobras to help deliver an easy driving total package worthy of the Cougar name.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. It makes for the affordable classic coupe with a ton of premium flair. Call today!!!
