Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

The hood scoop was a part of the 1971 GT package. By 1972 the hood scoop would have still been available through the parts department.

Re: Brake Lights stopped working... but turn signals and tail lights are fine...

All you need to do to remove the switch is to pull that pin shown in your photo. Then the switch and the rod to the master cylinder will slid off the brake pedal. It is a bit hard to see but from your photos it appears that you are missing the plastic bushings that fit over the stud on the brake ped...

Re: Where does this part go?

Yes, it provides support for the hood tooth. Yes, there is only one of them. I believe that black would be the original color.

Looks like those are vinyl stick-on pinstripes? If so, then they're not original.
Were original stripes painted? Or are you saying that “sick-on” are after market?
For the car that is the subject of this thread the original pin strips were painted on.

Re: Fender adjustment help

Are you refering to the door to fender gap? If so the top of the fender can be pushed back toward the door to close the gap and the bottom of the fender can be pulled forward to widen the gap. If you attempt this you may also need to bend some mounting brackets as well. There is one inside the fende...

Re: Was there ever a 1971 Cougar TransAm Race Car?

The P&G cars were all different colors. The T-Bird was white, the Torino was yellow, the Mach I was orange (as I recall) and the Cougar was maroon. The 4 1972 cars were also all different colors. The 1971 cars used a shooter that fit into a hole in the rear bumper. The 1972 cars sat on a blue plasti...

Re: Was there ever a 1971 Cougar TransAm Race Car?

I am not aware of any 71-73 style Cougar slot car in any scale being offered by any manufacturer. Of course it is possible that someone could have used some other 71-73 Cougar body from another toy and made it into a slot car. I have seen several where the 1/24-1/25 scale annual model kit body was u...

Re: CCOA History

The CCOA was founded about 1980 by Tom Jacobellis and Mark Strand. You may have seen a thread on this site about Tom when he passed away about 2 years ago.

The seller also offers the same decals in other scales, I just happened to post the listing number for the 1/43rd ones.

Phillip,
What 1/43 scale Cougar body are you refering to?

Re: Was there ever a 1971 Cougar TransAm Race Car?

There were 71-73 body style Cougars that were raced, although I cannot say that they were in the Trans-Am series. Most likely they were in a lesser grade series. If you look at ebay auction #401628861686 the seller is offering reproduction decals to replicate a 71-2 race Cougar. The listing include...
