If anybody is interested I have a 78 XR7 with just under 37K miles on it I also bought it from the original owners. it is excellent driving an show condition, everything is original except the radio and it has chrome valve covers.Is not listing it to a wide audience (ebay / bring a trailer) not one of the best ways to find a new owner with passion?
for more info or pictures contact me. 217-994-6296. It can be seen on Chicago's Craigslist search 78 Cougar XR7 it is brown metallic.
I can't upload pictures of it here.
