Not sure if this one is in the register or not ( I just submitted it with the owner's permission).

Anyway, I had never seen this particular Cougar around town. And I was really surprised to see a 4-speed in the cockpit! Currently done up in Comp. Orange with Eliminator hoodscoop '70 Eliminator side stripe, and '70 Elim deck spoiler. Looked like it possibly had its original leather interior. Wheels were very '80's looking tri-spoke chrome deals.
Buck tag indicated power top and power (drum) brakes. No AC. Not a huge fan of comp orange, but that is waaaaay better than the stock lt. ivy yellow, IMHO:icon16:

holy moly

Dang.... I new that sucker was rare, but not THAT rare!!!

Just came across this car at a local car show a couple hours ago. Of course, I had to run home and decode to see if the 4-speed was legit.

I don't feel bad that its no longer Light Ivy Yellow. What an unfortunate color. Not quite Pastel Grey unfortunate, but unfortunate none-the-less. lol.
