Wow, you definitely can't build that car for that money...

How hard would it be to add AC?

Oh wow. I remember seeing this car years ago at a couple shows. It was always one of my favorite Cougars I'd come across. Price seems pretty fair to me, especially considering what it would cost to build. If only I was rich and had a huge garage...

Bill we are thinking alike. First thing I looked for was the A/C. Must be a generation thing.

There's no compressor, but the dash appears to be an A/C dash and selector. Seems a good candidate for a vintage air underhood setup that could look pretty factory.
Just my $.02

Jack H. is the owner. I believe that he had 3 1970 Cougars. As I recall, sourcing a manual transmission bell housing for a 429/460 car was tough and expensive on this car.
Pretty sure that the under hood parts from most any 429 or 460 from 1970-73+? car would work. Used to be plentiful off Thunderbird and Lincoln.

I agree that is a good price for this Cougar. In reference to the A/C that would be the cherry on top for this Cougar. I guess as stated above it’s a generation thing. The older we get these things seem more important on our muscle cars. The youthful owner of a muscle car would probably want A/C gone ASAP because it would rob horsepower.
