Hi, my name is Kat, I'm from country Victoria in Oz and I bought my first '69 Cougar a week ago. I dont know anything about them other than I wanted one.. My hubby has a '66 Mustang hardtop, so I had to go one better and get the convertible cougar. She is still left hand drive and our regulations are now that I can leave it that way ! She is a total resto, but I'll get there.. I have plenty to find out and hope I can find that help here..so, to some pics






My first question.. The tag inside the door is almost unreadable, how do I find out what the codes mean? I've tried google, but doesnt help.
Thanks

Welcome Kat! (good name for a Cougar owner!). Regardless of how lousy your door tag is, the characters of importance are stamped in, you could even hold a piece a paper over the tag and do a pencil rubbing to get the characters. Once you have them, go here to decode: http://www.cougarclub.org/vindecoder/ The numbers on the bottom of the tag read across as do the fields in the decoder.

Once again welcome.

Regards,

Bob
