You could not get cruise with 428 as they were worried about sudden acceleration.I don't know much about Cougars yet, just what my car has.
XR7 428/C6. It has the tilt wheel option, AC, 3.25 trac-loc rear, power windows, black leather, and a bunch of other options. I can't imagine that my car has all the rare options.
Heres what is weird...it has cruise control on the car, but it is not listed as an option on the Marti.
I can speak of 71-3 partsI am going to change your question to 'parts in general', John.
1967-68 Standard Cougar convenience group option.
Eliminator dash pieces - all 3 sections.
1970-73 colored rim blow switches (we have submitted the request to the supplier).
1973 tail light lenses.
Sunroof parts - all years.
1971-73 Power seat.
Radio delete plates.
Heater delete plates.
1969 Flow thru ventilation.
I'll need to check my books but usully the convience group would not include leather wraped wheel or the tilt,AlphaCat has just about every option available in '73, so in addition to the XR-7 standard features, it has:
Q-code 351C-4V, which also automatically got C-6 trans w/high stall converter, 3.25 locking rear, staggered rear shocks, dual exhaust
Power driver's seat
Power seatback release
Rear defogger (heated glass, not blower)
Leather-wrapped steering wheel - I substituted a rim blow wheel, but still have the leather one around here somewhere...
Spare tire lock
Full console w/clock
Tilt steering wheel
Handling package (front and rear sway bars, HD shocks)
I think several of the above options are what constituted the 'Convenience Group' (Tilt wheel, Leather-wrapped wheel, automatic seatback release, spare tire lock...)
Anyway, the only option I can think of that it doesn't have is the power sunroof. Well, that and those ugly factory styled steel wheels... Why chrome Magnum 500s weren't an option is beyond me...
Of course, it also had a dealer-installed FoMoCo trailer hitch on it when I bought it, too!
All 72-73 Q-code Mustangs and Cougars got staggered rear shocks, but not all got rear sway bar. BetaCat (also a Q-code automatic) doesn't have rear stabilizer bar and doesn't look like one was removed either, but has staggered rear shocks -- different or no competition suspension package, maybe?
I can't remember what was included in the Convenience Group package, so that was a guess on my part. I know some package got me the spare tire lock, and can't remember all what else was included in that package... Never seen another spare tire lock on any other Cat... BTW, it uses one of the car keys - I'm guessing the trunk key. Been too long since I've seen it.
BTW, I have a factory build sheet for AlphaCat, but much of it is unreadable, due to tar stains.
My one 68 had the luggage rack bolts but was missing the rack. It had the four holes in the center area of the rack not outside like the repros you see today. I saved those bolts hoping someday to find the rack.Another rare option was the luggage rack, optional from the factory only in '67. It was also available as a dealer installed accessory in '67 and later years.
The only option in 73 was the 351CJ - so that wouldn't be a factor, possible for 72 though - I don't have a 72 product facts book thoughMitch, when I was researching the exhaust systems, there is a specific difference on Q code 1972 Cougars. There was a 'sporty' version, and a 'quiet' version. I believe that 'sporty' version came with a chromed air cleaner lid with a different tag. i.e. 351CJ.
Could this account for the rear sway bar variation?
