I'm parting out a 72 Cougar and 71 Cougar XR7, may sell both cars complete if someone is interested. Both H code cars, both have power disk brakes,auto trans, and factory air. 71 has a 351 C, 72 has a 351 Windsor. The XR7 is rough but the 72 is an easy resto with very good interior parts. Email me for your wants and needs.

Me first, me first.I could use a few parts if I can get them reasonable enough. I need the drivers side rear interior panel and a rear lower valance. Could also use the door pulls or the whole door panel if you don't want to piecemeal it. Email me at [email protected] and we can talk. Thanks!

I am going to try to sell at least the 72 locally as it is really a restorable car. It would be a shame to part this one. If I don't get any bites, I will let everyone know.

Do you have any more pictures of both cars? And how much do you want for the whole car/s? (for the group):D

Hate to tease you but.....

I have one. It's not for sale. I may know someone who may have one, though. It was for sale awhile back. I'll let you know.:p: You have a very nice collection of cars there. Damn!

Welcome aboard!
If you look at the date of Zane's post, that was awhile ago.
I'm getting another parts car soon and I'll have a set of extra seats. They are originally 71 XR-7 seats (front buckets) in black. 71-73 are the same in the front seats. What else do you need?

71-3 part wanted!

I'm in the need of the rear body panel of a 71-73. This is the panel at the most back edge of the trunk opening. What I really need is the top portion with the trunk weatherstrip channel and the inch or so of good metal below that. My channel turned in to swiss cheese! This channel is about 4 feet wide.

Please help!!!!

My trunk channel was also swiss cheese. I had the body shop rebuild mine and it looks great! It costed me $500 about 5 years ago. My trunk pan still looks like swiss cheese and you can see the gas tank through it! My inside quarter drop offs are holey too. I had new weather stripping put in and the trunk still gets full of water(have to take the trunk mat out).

Are you thinking about cutting it out of another car?

Nokitten seat ???

The 71-73 seats can interchanged and if its not an xr7 then you can also use seats from a mustang. Hope this helps as far as the whole seat question goes.

Thanks for the info, Cougar Kitty & rbaney. I also need a steerung wheel (pref w/ complete cougar emblem), some mirrors and the taillights. My cat's an XR7, so pony seats wont work. Cougar Kitty, if you get that car before to long, I'd like your seats.

Well, Interior's ginger with a Copper exterior. XR7 from '73. I'm trying to get her street legal so I can drive her around. Alot of little things need done, and she (amazingly) still has the original owners' manual and Cal. Emissions pack. My top three concerns right now are the driver's seat, a brake booster (pretty sure that that's the problem with the brakes), and taillight wiring. As soon as I can shrink my pics to a Kb, I'll upload some. My Dig camera is too good, and a Pic is 500kb.

I just uploaded 4 pics into my gallery. They're all of the original condition of the car, including damage that needs fixed. Take a look.:angelg:

Looking good!
You don't seem to need too much for that car. Check mine out under the 72 cat-agory. Mine was worse than yours 8 years ago!
