Having had the pleasure to spend some time around this car, I think that price is very fair. It's an unbelievable machine and draws interest at shows like bees to honey.

A lot of Michigan drag racing history with that Cougar. I like the photo at Grattan back when it was a drag strip. converted to road course back in the late 70's and is still family owned. here is a picture of my track cat in about the same location the drag strip picture was taken. Just looking in the opposite direction.

While considering how and when to post this sale, which will soon also be on Bring a Trailer if not sold here within the next week, I spoke to many of our peers, because this car is a bit unique and it has a very interesting history. It is the only Cougar for sale that I am aware of that has such a well documented Pure Stock Drag history, known ownership, very low original miles, no rust ever, and has its Born with driveline and original documents. I had an urge to take this car to auction and many said that this was the best direction to go in. But I would much rather know that this car is going to a real Cougar person before it goes to BaT or an auction. Therein, the asking price is $89,000. I did not realize that forum rules require a price in a for sale listing- Sorry.
Wow! To me, this is about as cool as they come! IMO (which means nothing, really), the asking price is very reasonable.

I'm with Neal on this :-)

It has an awesome amount of documentation which is rarely seen in this amount of quantity and quality, good luck with the sale.

For the right buyer this is an incredible opportunity. Honestly I thought it would be priced higher.

The comments so far have been very kind. Most of you know me and so you know a car always leaves me better than I got it. But I maintained the mods the original owner made to make this car dominate Pure stock. Lighter weights in the distributor for a quicker wind up, shimmed and thinner front stabilizer bar, loop under the driveshaft (for safety), drain placed in the pumpkin, and even a missing leaf in the right rear spring- anything to transfer weight to cause the car to hook up. Shocks are not drilled to leak now, but the left front was back then. Anything to go faster. And for those who think the C6 might be a negative? Not in this car with this setup- the C6 was quicker and Mr. Carter knew this. The only options are AM radio, front discs to stop at the end of the quarter mile, and Courtesy lights. I love the manual steering, and the smog equipment and wheel lip moldings were removed in the first week. The steel wheels were removed and stored Day 1- they have the original paint.

The feeling you get when you punch the 4 bbl on this car is visceral and raw. And a little scary as you get sideways in a hurry. It is like no other Cougar I have ever driven, and this is one of 7 428s I have owned.

The really crazy thing is that, if you look closely, you will see a mate black hood instead of the Ram-Air hood the dealer installed to make this Q code more like an R code. Tom was winning so many races, race officials made him remove the Ram Air because they felt it was an unfair advantage. Of course, it didn't matter and he kept winning.
