I was asking about this earlier myself...Would we agree, that it is the "celebrated" birthday of Cougar?

Remember anytime Ford introduced a new model it was "born" on the 4th of July. Cougar 1 was actually built a bit later than than.

John knows, he restored it. There is a fun back story on finding it, researching it and the restoration of it.
