    This Cougar is a 100% rust free AZ car, very straight, all original body panels, never been repainted (original paint, but very faded). 89,000 original miles, original engine and trans, original exhaust. Only 2 owners since 1971! Previous owner had the car in his backyard since 1985. Pictures coming soon.
    Wow..love it! I'm in MA and well....let's just say..rust is an issue. LOL.
    Would love something like this to get started!

    Cougar Fans, yes this all original AZ Rust free J code automatic Lime Green, white interior Cougar is officially for sale now. If not sold here 1st, it will go to Ebay within the next few weeks. Latest status. It is now running. Fuel tank, fuel pump and gas tank good now. The engine starts right up and runs smooth, no smoking. The original exhaust system still sounds good. I will be replacing the water pump, since it is frozen from sitting so long. It needs a new radiator, or have the original 24 inch one recored. It also needs the brakes bled out still, then it will be able to drive onto a trailer or transporter. We will bleed the brakes this weekend. Price is $3000. Update pictures are available. Thanks!

    Man...... I really wish I had an extra $3000 right now. I even wish I could afford to 'borrow' $3000 right now. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.............. Good luck with the sale Scott.
    Thanks
