XR7-G Book

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

I have a 68 XR-7 I’m working on that’s pretty close to yours.

Don Skinner has done an amazing job gathering all of the details and bringing together a lot of great information from various sources, including Royce, Kevin Marti and several XR7-G owners.

Phillip Payne, have you started working on your Eliminator Graphics...

Thank you for all that you do for the Cougar Community.

Thank you Gavin, I really appreciate the kind words. I have not started on the Eliminator graphics yet but I am really looking forward to those.

What Gavin posted is actually not the cover to the book - that is a preliminary sketch that I did at the start of the project to give a rough idea as to what the cover I was envisioning would look like.

What I posted at the start of this thread is the final art for the book.

I also received the XR7-G posters from my printer the other day. Those, along with the GT-E posters will be available under the Cougar tent at the Carlisle Ford Nationals next week.

I will be getting an autographed version from the author, but I’m also going to need a couple of those posters, Phillip.
