    Introducing 0F94H507149

    Introducing the latest member of my Cougar Den
    I already have a White with Ginger interor XR-7 hard top VIN 0F93H524398 and a 70 XR-7 Convertible VIN 0F94M523136. I have been looking for a parts car to get a couple needed sheet metal parts for the M code drop top. Well a few days ago I was searching Craigslist and found a pile of part that had all the parts I needed. As well as another 70 XR-7 droptop.
    Introducing 0F94H507149. Isn't she a beauty?

    Tep, the seats and door panels are ginger insted of Red. I have the Red dash

    Humm, that don't look like a Winsor, The 351C2V came from the same parts car the Ginger interor parts came from.

    This pile of junk was the only reason I bought it. If you look closly you woll see a 70 Convertible quarter panel hiding there. It came with both R/H and L/H quarters.
    My plans are to tune it up put it together, clean it up and put it up for sale. If you know any one who is looking for a ruff project have them contact me.
    Lets make a deal...

    Re: Introducing 0F94H507149

    I spent a good part of the day working on 0F94H507149. Earlier this week I get the hood hinges bolted on and the hood bolted to them. I need so adjust them so every things lines up. Today I worked in the interior. I got the lower dash put beck in place. Installed the glove box and put the dash pad in place. I cleaned the quarter trims and back seat and put them in.

    Looks funny with the Red dash and Ginger door panels. But not as funny as a Black Mustang rear seat in the tri-colored interior.

    As I don't plan to restore the car and plan to sell it,I want it to be as complete and together for the next owner to start with. I am taking a ton of pictures. This Cougar can make some one a great little project. Build it the way you want.
    I plan to get an exhaust on it in a couple weeks. Then I will get it tuned up and running well.
    I will keep posting pictures as I go. If you might have an interest let me know. I can get you tons of pictures, It will need a complete restoration It will need a pasingers side floor. I think the drivers side is good. When I have time to get it up on stands I will inspect the underside closely and photograph it.

    Badcatt, nice score! Interested in selling the LS vert quarter? What kind of condition is it in? I'm restoring a '70 M code vert and mine had been hit at the quarter extension pushing in the quarter. Thanks, Carey

    Re: Introducing 0F94H507149

    I have to apologize for not getting back to people on this, But... The Left quarter panel is trash, It was replaced at one time and done poorly. The R/H quarter is fine from mid wheel well back. The trunk floors are nice. I have sold some of the trim but have some more for sale. It came with an extra set of quarters but they are most likely only good for patch panels. The were replaced at one time with Ford replacement panel. But,It will take a lot of work to use them as replacements again. It has a decent set of doors with bolt in glass. Any interest let me know.

    Re: Introducing 0F94H507149

    Neal - I would be interested in the lower portions of the quarters - the wheel wells are different on the 70 Vs the 69 though.....not sure how much it would change things? the bolt in glass is an attractive option but I have 2 good doors and the new glues seems to hold up just fine. I could use the front and rear valence pannels if they aren't to beat up....

    I really like the look of your white XR7 0F93H524398 , especially since it has no vinyl top.

    The difference in the wheel opening is at the front section. If you are putting a whole quarter on a car then the differnce comes into play. If you are only patching in sections in should not present much of a problem. If you are looking to replace a section that would run from inside the door jamb (factory overlap area) to the outer wheel house then you will need the repair section to be from the same year as the car being repaired. If the donor car and the project car are opposite years then you would need to cut this panel in somewhere on the face area. This applies only to the section in front of the tire. Behind the tire should not be an issue at all regardless of which year the donor and project cars are.

    Does it have a Cleveland or Windsor? AC? What color is the interior? My 0F91H (long gone) had red. Wouldn't be my first choice, but that's how it came.
