I recently purchased a 69 XR7 Conv. The car has the identical roll bar that woul be found in the
Shelby Conv of the same year. I am not aware of any Cougars having roll bars. I was however told the Shelby bar would not fit the cougar, this one
fits perfect including radiused rear arm rest panels etc. Any thoughts

About 15 to 20 years ago JC Whitney used to sell a roll bar that would fit a 69 Cougar conv. They had a bolt in type and a weld in type. They haven't sold them for some time. I wish I would have bought one when they did but I didn't have the funds then. It could be one of those. Buddy

I will try get some pictures on soon, we are just in the process of replacing the inner and outer wheel wells and the quarters. The bar is welded in, its not round , its more of a rectangle, it is in fact the identical bar found in the Shellby, it is wrapped in back leather and is sticthed along the back, the fit is perfect, the contour is also perfect as far as the rear windows are concerned, it looks as factory an install than any shelby I have ever seen .
