1969 Cougar XR7 California Project

Here is a shot of our latest project, an all-original, 99% rust free, 69 XR7 hardtop. We were tired of getting wet in our convertible's, so we decided to get a hardtop! Anyway, this car is a H code/3 spd car, that has some interesting options, like trunk mounted antenna and a console with the 3 spee

It is going to be my dad's car, he has much more ability to do a good job on it then I do. It doesn't really need much at all thankfully, but it's a little hard at 16 to support 2 cars. I will always keep my convertible.

The interior has been taken out and detailed, and it now has a 4v intake and runs great. It also now rides on a set of Magnum 500's with BFG Radial T/a's. In the near future it will be repainted. We also just bought a toploader 4 speed for it, and will install that in the near future. Thanks for asking!

I feel I have a 'slight' vested interest in that Cougar since I saw it before you bought it! LOL I even thought about buying it if your sale fell through. it is/was a very interesting original cat.
