1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 351C 2bbl from North America
Mustang chassis rear leaf springs, front coil on upper control arm. Nice car!!
Alternator, regulator, battery.
Timing chain and gear set.
My mom had two 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupes. One she wrecked. Insurance bought her a new one off the lot. She got me appreciating Cougars big time. Very upscale pony car. Especially XR7 version. Leather super comfy buckets!! Full console, bulletproof C6 auto. 9" axle with 3.00:1 ratio and traction lock. Dual sport mirrors. AM/FM stereo with dual door mounted speakers, tach and gauges standard, Rim Blow 3 spoke steering wheel standard, factory toggle switches for map light, courtesy lamp, and rear defogger. Awesome sequential rear turn signals!! Just like old T-Birds and Shelby Mustangs!!
Such a cool car. You could absolutely roast those rear tires just by flooring it. No brake stand required. Really loved how that Cleveland 351 with those canted valve heads would just build revs with power and purpose.
Beautiful tunnel back recessed rear window. Factory 14x7 styled steel wheels with trim rings, 5 slots, argent color, and brushed small lug covers. So comfortable and so fun!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
