Mercury was one of the “premium” Ford brands until the brand was retired in 2011. The Cougar was produced between 1967 and 2002. Early models were built to slot between the Mustang and Thunderbird in the Ford line-up but they were essentially a Mustang under the skin.

This car is a 1973 Cougar XR-7 convertible in blue. It is fitted with its original 5.7 litre Windsor V8. It is MOT’d and runs and drives well but we are offering it here as a light project. The body is in fine condition and the underside is excellent – original and rust free. The interior trim is good. It has had just one owner since importation into the UK in 2007. The mileage is believed correct but not guaranteed at 62,000.

There is some work required. The electric convertible roof is not working – the motor is making a noise but the switch in the dash is broken. The boot-lid has some bubbles and will need repairing and painting - there are one or two other imperfections in the paint but nothing serious. The keys for the boot and doors have been lost so it will need a key making or a lock set. The ignition key is present. There is a small tear in the hood that will require repair. The oil pressure is good but there is some smoke from one exhaust on the over-run when it’s warm so one of the heads will need overhaul and probably valve guides - a straightforward job on this car.

If you know American cars you will be aware that an XR-7 convertible in good order is typically £12k to £20k. This one could be brought up to excellent condition for a relatively small sum of money. We have various cars in work right now so we are offering it as a light project. MOT until June. Happy to re-MOT if required. Great value!!
P/X possible with another classic car or motorcycle. Please call if you need more info.
