Lucky me, I recieved a Marti report on my car from Santa! I have some questions about it that one or more of you may be able to answer. My report lists the following options: Console, Protection Group, Competition Suspension. Does "Console" mean center console/armrest feature or console shifter? I am curious because the car did not come with a center console/armrest but has some telltale holes on the tunnel. I would like to add one regardless. What is included in the Protection group and the Competition Suspension packages? What are the options included in the XR-7 package for 1970?:)

yes, you are correct on the console. the competition suspension came with a larger stabilizer bar i believe and F70 14 tires. maybe spring differences too. ( Cougars never got a rear sway bar correct? ) i THINK the protection package came with the door ding guards and the bumper guards as well. XR7's came with different seats and door panels as well as different guages than the standard Cougars. engine choices were the same. C'mon other people on the boards... come rip apart my advice... lol need to test myself

Hey Leon. What the heck is a 3-bar grill?
XR-7 front grills were the same as std. except for the xr-7 badge instead of the running cat for 1970, right? The rear stabilizer bar was only for 70, 69 comp. handling pkg. was the same w/o the rear sway bar.
I have the appearance protection group on mine and have the front bumper guards and but not the door edge guards. Got any for my 69 cat?
