I would like to move at least one XR7-G to make room so I can work on both of my new projects at the same time. Both are fully documented, in the registry, are the same color combo (Lime Frost ext & Dark Ivy int). One car was off the road for at least 10 years and the other one was in storage for 30 years. Both have been completely gone through to make them roadworthy, safe, and reliable. I really only would like to move one but should someone want a pair I could make that happen as well at a special discounted price. Anyone wishing to see additional photos or like more info send me a PM with your email address and/or your phone number should you would like to talk in person.

"His" XR7-G is a numbers matching car with 60K original miles. 390 s-code, AT, PS, PB, AC (needs re-charge), AM radio, no sunroof. Lots of new trim, including bumpers, etc, etc.. Beautiful original Vinyl top. Super nice Int, with only the front seats and console top being recovered. This car runs and drives awesome. Car was in storage from 1978-2010. Asking Price $31,500

A link to info regarding this car can be found at http://www.mercurycougar.net/forums/showthread.php?46857-1968-xr7-g-60k-actual-390&highlight=indiana+xr7-g


"Hers" XR7-G is a non-numbers matching car. 302 j-code (rebuilt with only sixteen miles), AT, PS, PB, AC (not installed, but have all the parts), AM/FM radio, non sunroof, see link below for interesting details and history. Super solid Beverly Hills car, still has its original mufflers, tailpipes and XR7-G tips. Asking $21,500.

if you can get .50 back for every $1.00 spent you're doing good.

Its not about the money, I just do these cars to keep me busy and out of the bars. I don't expect to make money, if I did I would be working on someone elses cars. I have had several offers but don't want to make a job of it and take the fun out of doing them.

Besides its only money, you can always make more. and as I always say money is never important, unless you don't have any. LOL

Great cars! You gotta love green, huh? I'm still looking for a red with black interior XR7G, small block car, that I missed out on here in Arizona about 7 years back....
I would love to find out where that one is! (I think it went to California, but ??)

I'm not sure what the deal is with green, its not even my favorite color. It seems everytime I find the type car I want to buy its green. It kind of grows on me. Its really nice when its new and fresh, but when its old and dull it looks like $h!T. Below is a photo of one of my latest projects I'm recently acquired, ands of course its green as well.

Royce;

I am planning on putting them on my Scotts garage sale website sometime late next week. If you would like PM me your email address and I will forward you an email with over 50 photos I took of the J-code last weekend. The photo up top was taken on 6/17/12.
