I think it's a really cool design... I just don't like the color choice! Also.. I think it would look better with the fuel filler cap in the middle, rather than offset. The taillights are kinda crazy, but pretty cool.
More pics I found around the web:
Here's a nice rendering that somebody did:
It would be a cool custom project for somebody At least it's based on a '70 Cougar, not built from scratch.... any takers?? I think with a better color it would look awesome. The wheels / tires are sweet.
i know someone with roof skin expeirence...perhaps he should take on the task of redoing the roofline on a cougar hahaha.
i like it. the asssss looks strange with the fuel filler offset, hidden behind some tail lights would look great IMO. the side view looks alot like a mopar product of the same era to me....paint it orange and some goof's would never know haha.
i like the color, especially for the time it was done. the rims are a little iffy to me, but can u imagine the 16s back then?? that woudl have been like "oh my gawd u put such a low profile tire and huge rims on that car"
Yeah, the Torino'ish tail lights and that box nose piece,.....don't do it for me, but the profile and the quarter views are stunning! Notice the shaved drip rails and door handles,....chrome work, completely blended.
I think it's perfect. It's a product of it's time and my guess is it was built by the great Alexander brothers, who restyled a number of cars for Ford and Lincoln-Mercury in the '60s and '70s. They also created the Deora (remember the Hot Wheel?) for Chrysler.
The Mustang Milano, built around the same time (and probably by the same people) is similar in design.
