    1968 Cougar GTE for sale!

    Im not sure if its anyone's on here but I was searching craigslist for parts like I normally am and came across and ad in the Dayton, Ohio craigslist posting ID 3539732882. Cardinal red, black or red interior (cant tell from the photo) wish I had the cash to take a chance on one of these.

    1968 Mercury Cougar GTE - $55000 (Beavercreek)



    This is an original GTE Cougar. 7.0 liter 427 FE automatic, Second owner. If you know what this is then you know what it is worth if you can actually find one. I have a copy of Muscle Car Magazine that featured this very car. I also have a Johnny Lightning Matchbox Car that used this car for the photo card. This is super rare and very cool. Obviously no joy rides and no low ball offers. $55,000 We are well aware of what this car is worth and it is a steal at this price. No hurry to sell. Call 937 Three Zero Seven 3548

    I'm guessing the car will sell this time around.

    It's kind of funny reading through the old thread about how the lousy marketing won't keep the car from selling. Yet here it is a year and a half later for sale at $30K less.

    I bet you are right AL - I think he has it at the I want to sell it price, rather than the I'd like to get price. If I had 55k it'd be gone!

    I can't tell from the picture and no one has mentioned, is this an XR7?

    No, this one is a standard. If I had the money, I would have bought it too, even though I am not crazy about the color.

    Re: 1968 Cougar GTE for sale!

    I have a 68 sales brochure and it has an orange GTE on the cover. Now that would be the hot ticket. Maybe Mr. Pinkerton would know if that one was accounted for?

    I think there were two orange GTEs and I've seen one of them up in Surrey, BC Canada. I don't know if that was the brochure car you're referring to though. I'm sure Pink will chime in with what he knows at some point.

    I know that it looks like the brochure car is orange, but it is really either red, or the car pictured was some prototype that was never serialized. When the brochure was made, neither of the production GT-Es had been produced.
