Deja Vu? Haven't we been down this road before? I thought you had a couple of (what looked to me like) very good leads the last time you posted a thread like this? What happened to those?

Haha well I got some parts from chris but the drivers door on my cougar is in worse shape then I thought so im kinda looking around for more close cougars so when i get to some of the parts I need I can get them. Ive got the door and fender done on the pass side and almost ready to pull the motor im gona do the interior over the winter. Im just looking for more leads that way if I need something I know where to find it. Hows your cougar doing??

My Cougar is great Aaron, thanks for asking. I have been having so much fun it should be illegal showing the car and taking home awards! 9 shows, 11 trophies this season since she was finished in June.

Good luck with the car, have you assessed the damage further yet (like removing bad panels, at least the ones that unbolt)?

Regards,

Bob

Isn't this the car that rolled into a ditch? If yes (and my memory serves), the panels (doors, fenders, 1/4's) at least on one side were pretty banged up. So, this is what I am asking about, that and the fender aprons underneath, stuff like that. Seems to me you need to determine if what is under what you can unbolt is viable or how much work it would need to be viable. I think I said words to this effect this before.

Regards,

Bob

If anyone is still looking for a parts car or a 69 to restore I have one. It is restorable but has rusted out floor pans and rust in all of the panels, not beat up just rusted. All of the car is there with no parts missing. It was running in 1984 when the guy I bought it from stopped driving it. It is a 351 winstor with a C4 and factory A/C. It is a one owner car because I have not titled it in my name yet. It is dark green with green interior. I live in Greensboro NC and can send some pictures if anyone is interested. You can reach me at [email protected]
