  7. Please Read New Guys/Ladies

    As originally posted by BiC_Currahee:Hey guys I thought that this post could help all BiC members know who our new members are. When new members join the clan they usaully change their names. I would like if every new member could post their new BiC name and also post the name they use to go by. We talk to a lot of people on the servers that say that they are going to join but if they change their names and dont say anything we have no clue what happened to them. So if you have a liitle time please do this.

Besides the roof the car is in pretty good shape the interior is complete , engine and tranny were rebuilt, suspension is good and all electrical work. has some dings but thats bout it thats why is hard for me to give up on her and pert it out. any idea how much this type of work is going to run me? any advice from anyoune who has had to do any major type of fabrication on if its worth the time and money is appreciated. thanks

    Your better off posting this in the Cougar Community discussion threads!
    you'll get a better answer, IMHO
    If you can find a roof shouldnt be that hard, and either weld it your self or find some one to do it for a reasonable price it may not be to bad
    talk to some of the ECI on the forum
    you might want to put your location in your profile there could be a Cougar gearhead near you!
    Good Luck!

    69 Cougar XR7

    Hello all. A dream is coming true. I found myself a 1969 Cougar XR7. It is powered by a 351W attached to a FMX transmission. The guy I bought it from had pulled the engine and transmission to paint the car, along with the chrome molding, mirrors, bumpers, and door handles. He has also pulled the dash apart to replace the heater core.

    The car is rust free and straight. It is going to be a project. Not sure where to start. I'm going to be busy moose hunting for awhile and go pick the car up next week. Once I get it home I'll look forward to discussing the restorations with you all.

    The VIN# is 9F93M556573, not sure what to do with that or what it could tell me.

    Another photo

    This photo was taken 16 years ago just before he stripped the paint off. From what I understand the paint job it had was cracking and his buddy was going to paint it. The buddy ended up going blind from diabetes and the job was never finished. It sat in the guys shop until two years ago when he had to put it outside, ran out of room with other pressing projects. He did not seem to happy about selling the car but wanted to sell to someone who would get the job done. HE commented that if I did not buy the car he would not sell it.

    Welcome to the forum. Here is a breakdown of the VIN:9-Year 1969, F-Built at Dearborn plant, 93-XR-7 Hardtop, M-351-4V Windsor engine, 56,573-Mercury vehicle scheduled for production at Dearborn. If you'll check your drivers door, there should be a door data tag with some other codes besides the VIN on it. You should submit this info to the data base on this link: www.cougarclub.org/vindecoder/ . Also, if you would like to know what options your car came with you should order a "Marti" report from here: www.martiauto.com/reports2.cfm . John
    1968 XR-7 * F-code (302-2V)* C4 * Polar White (M) * Dark Red Leather (6D) * 23U * 46 * 5 * W * PS * AC * CCOA #8579 * MWM * Under Restoration * Hidden Content

    Re: Please Read - New Guys/Ladies

    Hey all, My name is Andrea(cougarchick68) and my husband Scott. I jus wanted to introduce my husband and I. We have and are gonna restore a standard 68 cougar 302-2v according to the vin. We got the car pretty rust free except for the roof which held a few surprises under the vinyl top. Its has no motor or Tranny and needs paint so its basically a blank canvas for us to create the car I want it to be. I registered the car on the link provided and look forward to meeting all of you and asking tons of questions
