Re: Two more 68 Convertibles have surfaced

It never occurred to me that there might be a page about the 67/8 manufactured Cougar convertibles. There is a guy down one town over from Canon City, Colorado that had a nice one! I think this one is already on my page listed as one of those whose owner is unknown. If you can get me any more info ...

Re: Two more 68 Convertibles have surfaced

I have about 30 pictures of Rex's roadster I took at the 2005 Nationals in Dallas. They were taken with a 36MM SLR and I had the film put on disc so they are not as sharp as today's cellphone pictures, but you are welcome to them if you want. I have some of Eric's models with the car, Rex's photo a...

Re: Two more 68 Convertibles have surfaced

The Lucas Hovis Green and White one at the bottom was recently bought by a fellow who showed it on a Cougar Facebook group. He paid a lot for it, and said the construction bill was over 80K. And that was quite a few years ago, I imagine? I believe it! That's a great page, thanks for sharing :) Bria...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

This site is in for a bit of a surprise on this car. the Vin numbers on the inner fender panels MATCH the dash and the door VIN's. Rob, as a decidedly non-expert when it comes to originality, I do have a question based on the above statement. Given that the Cougar is a unibody, is it conceivable th...

Bill, You can update that Virgil Brown convertible is in the George Conrad collection.

Thanks, Brian! I'm going to steal that picture, if you don't mind.

That green and white one is sharp, IMO.
It is, and the mechanical upgrades must make it fun to drive. It makes me miss CatVert all the more.

Here's the link: http://catvert68.com/cougars/1967-1968-cougar-convertible-conversions/ They are about halfway down the page. If anyone knows more about these cars than what the owners pr...

Re: Free LED headlights for three lucky people.

In terms of entry qualifiers, it sounds like each entrant would need to meet the following criteria (in addition to model year): 1. Car in condition to take a glamour shot of the front end (which likely means some hood and fender exposure) 2. Willing and able to install the lights and submit picture...

Re: This fastback is going to be a cool project for someone

Greg Zuch, who did the structural work on CatVert, is building one. I expect his will be the first one to reach the finish line. These are in-process pictures from several months ago. http://www.catvert68.com/sharedpics/568.jpeg http://www.catvert68.com/sharedpics/571.jpeg http://www.catvert68.com/s...

Re: Assorted Cougar Parts - Free for local pickup

Are the wheel lip moldings restored originals? Be interested to see what shipping would be to 78216 The wheel lip moldings are definitely refurbished originals. You can see some of the tool marks in the pictures and 3 of the 4 have "AB9458" scratched into the back part of the lip edge. That's done ...
