Does anyone know what color the COUGAR letters were originally? I am thinking black because when the emblem fades it turns almost a light purple color. I have heard even red? But was wondering I have redone my emblem but have left the letters faded what ever color they used to be.
Thanks

I didn't know they were supposed to be any color at all? Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong ones? - Chad

Wow I didn't know they had color to them - that's going to have to be the next thing I paint I guess... If I'm not mistaken that's how the little trunk lock insert is painted too? - Chad

I have the reproduction trunk insert (standard).
This is a beautiful repo but it does not fit. You need to file down the top curve and paint the trunk lock black in the corners it will take some finesse and time. They stamped the die too big. However, with some slight modification it looks like a million bucks.

Hot Rod

That car was a resto-mod with the 1968 Red Line Hot Wheel as a template. He, Kelly Cox, made a life-sized Hot Wheel in Antifreeze green.
Cool car saw it at the SCCC 2000 West Coast Nats.
