I never understand why anyone would bring a run of the mill car to a off day of a super expensive auction.
So they can tell their friends their car sold at Barrett Jackson.

Re: Boss Eliminator sighted arriving at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale

Looks like the antenna on 1050 has a forward lean and 801 is straight up and down.

Re: Dash Panel Switches on a 1969 XR7 Convertible

In 70 and presumably 69 the far right switch was also used for the optional rear window defroster. Optional rear window defogger was controlled by a switch that hung down from behind the dash pad above the radio in 69. The far right switch was unused in 69 but was used for the convertible top switc...

Re: SS sill plates

They fit perfectly and look awesome. They also wear well as one would expect from stainless steel.

Re: Radiator Overflow jug a factory option?

No, the radiator had a small hose attached to a nipple on the filler neck that just drained to the ground. No overflow canister of any kind was available from the factory on 67-70 Cougars.

Re: Steering wheel restoration

Great advice Al would you know if the 68 Standard Cougar ever had black steering wheels? Sure they did...when the interior was black. I'd be careful about getting too bold with such a focal point.

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

This is one of those times where I have to put on my man pants and tell my wife where it will be prominently displayed in our home and not ask "if". I will let you know how that goes, :mrgreen: !
