I liked the blue one, but this one seems to be more correct...

Is it just me or does it seem odd the rear axle is a conventional type. It seems that most GT's are locking style.
I like the rare head rests on this one. Finally what is the second to last picture? Is that a partial VIN on the motor. My GT doesn't have a VIN on the but it was bulit in 1967. I think they were required starting in Jan. 1968. If anyone knows for sure please post comment.

A locking rear axle was an option and not standard on any cougar as an example most GT-E's came with a non locking rear the cars that did come with one was ordered that way.

VIN stamps were required on 4 speed manual transmissions beginning in January 1965. VIN stamps were required on all passenger car engines beginning January 1, 1968.

Locking rear axles were not standard on any Cougar. They are a very rare and desirable option.

Overall I think this is a pretty nice looking Cougar. It seems like a lot of big block Cougars have shown up for sale in recent months.
