Please provide the vin number as well as the left door data code plate information on this Cougar, so that I can properly research it. Thanks. Jim.

Well, as usual, I'm confused. If you own the car, you must have the title? If so the title shows the vin number. With it, I can look it up on the National Cougar Database, and/or obtain a Marti report which will provide the original factory order-image of the car as manufactured.

I don't believe that the interior is leather. I thought you had to order the XR-7 package to get the leather interior -- and even at that, only the front seat bottoms and backs were leather- everything else was vinyl.

Any of you others have any knowledge on this subject?

You are mostly correct. Standard Cougars of all years had all vinyl or the optional vinyl w/cloth inserts beginning in 1969. XR7's of all years are as you describe except that only the pleated inserts on the front seats are leather and the rear upper seat back, above the pleats, is also leather. With the XR7 package, you could also delete the standard leather and it was replaced with comfortweave or you could get the houndstooth cloth inserts instead of leather/vinyl.
