I am looking for a 1967 or 1968 Big Block Cougar. I am looking for a complete parts car (at least the drivetrain) or a daily driver. I would like to convert my 1968 Cougar over. I would also consider a car that is done if the price is ok. I would like it to be within somewhat reasonable driving distance of Bowling Green, KY. A 4-speed is prefered, but an automatic is ok as well. Logan, thanks for the board.

Wow!!!

Thanks for the offer on the car. It is at least one decimal place away from what I would like to spend on a car (and well more than I would spend on a parts car). I know you said, "or best offer", but I would not even want to insult you. It is a little too far away to drive to see from a curiosity standpoint. Actually, if I were to spend $45,000 on a car, I would look into buying a DeTomaso Pantera.

The Mercury Cougar was classified as a Muscle Cars along with the Mustang, and the Camero. It first came out in 1967.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

“The Cougar was very much a performance car. It was an up-market version of the Mustang with the same performance options but in a more luxurious interior.” Jim Glastonbury, Muscle Cars 2005<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Car Life Magazine describes the Mercury Cougar as, “A Mustang with class,” noting that it had better suspension. It is also known as the “big brother” to the Mustang. The Cougar is heavier, strong and well developed. <o:p></o:p>

The ‘68 Cougar is more of a “luxury sports car” with a better equipped interior, and more noise insulation than the Mustang.<o:p></o:p>
