I like this line "Have a look at maybe the best unrestored original surviving Cougar in existance." Pretty bold statement since I have seen some just as nice.

I like it. A lot. Love non vinyl top non Eliminator cars. I'd like to see the color in person. Not sure if I like the interior. That "nugget gold" almost looks greeen on my monitor. Can't really tell from the pics. Anyway, at 8,000.00 I'm done bidding before I started.
Is that the original voltage regulator

This sure is a nice clear car. It must have been one of the first '69s off the lot...license number is very close to my late '68.

Larry - It sure looks green to me too - it may be the decore vs non-decore thing

It's probably an ivy gold interior, not nugget gold.

Yes, the voltage regulator appears original. As an AC equipped car, it would have a 55 Amp alternator, and all the 55 AMP cars got voltage regulators (iirc) with a yellow printed Autolite label, blue cover and C8TF engineering number. The non-AC cars would have received a black covered unit with a silver C5AF Autolite logo.

Yeah - the paint color is not very desireable IMO, at least when you compared it to the much nicer Eliminator colors, Indian Fire, red or black, or almost any other color available in 1969. A very cean original car, but cay you say boring? Definitely looks like your Grandma's car....At $15K, I think the seller is very happy! I know that I would be.....
