I'm in the market for 67-68 cougar. I've found a pretty nice 68 with almost no rust, the interior is in pretty decent shape. the car needs work though, I was just wondering how much would be a good price to pay for it? the guy wants $7000, I could probably get it for a little less tho.

If you can take some pictures and post them here, that would help. What engine & transmission does it have? "A picture paints a thousand words..."

7k sounds like top money for it which is what I'd start with. Show him some sales and work him down.

It has a stock 302 windsor 2bbl. automatic transmission. I can't upload pics of it at the moment, but I found one online that is almost the same, except for the one online is an xr7. the one online also has a nicer paint job as well as interior. The engine looks the same though, as far as looks are concerned. www.californiaplaytoys.com/?listing=1968-mercury-cougar
I will certainly not argue price with anyone, it's in the eye of the beholder as far as i'm concerned.

BUT: a J code is 4V, and not 2V.

I paid more for mine, what with flying cross country to get it, and driving it back home. Some might cringe at what i paid for mine, but i am extremely pleased with my cougar, and will not sell it. Probably the same will go for most people in here who got their cat to where they wanted it.

just to give you an idea,
