Wow! You never know what will walk through the door here at WCCC on any given day... Local guys walks in this afternoon and says he has a $400 dollar 67 Cougar body that he bought in 1975 from the local Police Impound auction. They took the motor and trans and parked the carcass in the field not too far from us. Turns out this is the twin to Jim Pinkertons Cougar #1! 6.5L badging, tilt, cruise, PDB, console and AC. No good sheet-metal of course but it does have a clean set of 6F clear glass, even the windshield is good. Even though it is an AC car it is a clear windshield, no tint, no shade. Someone out there needs this, might be a Mustang guy but would love to see it stay as a set and go on an early Cougar. This vinyl top car was wrecked and left to fill with mice and such so no hopes of restoring it unless you are a hard core ECI.

Spent a few minutes this morning doing some carcheology on this Cougar.
Had a white vinyl top, power steering, disc brakes, air conditioning, speed control, convenience warning lights, tilt steering, AM radio, console, front and rear bumper guards.
I say that it had the convenience warning lights because it has a low fuel plug on the fuel tank (plus the absence of the front of the console).

From a brief discussion this morning with Jim Pinkerton, we checked the drivers side fender extension and found that the 'Mercury' script was drilled crooked. Apparently there was a Technical Service Bulletin describing the scripts being crooked from the factory.
