Re: 1967 GT , 11th Cougar built

Front Bumper guards were standard in '67 so they would never be on the Marti Report.

The only thing I can note from this picture is the Marti you posted doesn’t call out front bumper guards.

Re: "GT-E" distributor

It is not listed as being applicable to Fairlanes or Cyclones or Comets or Torinos. Only Mustang / Cougar. Thanks for clearing that up Royce. I would think there were a decent amount of these distributors made with mid '66 to mid '67 date codes for the '67 Fairlanes/Mustangs sold in AZ and CA. I exp...

Re: "GT-E" distributor

I just looked on eBay and found that C8UF 12127-G apparently is a good number for a '68 289 distributor.

Re: "GT-E" distributor

Interesting. I looked this up in the Mercury Master Parts Catalog, and found out that what you say is almost correct. The only two states that required Thermactor smog in 1968 were Arizona and California, so both of those needed this distributor in 1967. The C70F 12127-F is the only distributor list...

Re: 1967 GT , 11th Cougar built

The released and sold dates were the dates when Ford received notification of the event from the dealer. They are not necessarily the dates that it happened. It could be the dealer was doing end of the year housekeeping on his documents.

Re: 1967 GT , 11th Cougar built

The XR-7 was not built until January 1967. So when this car was built, if it was originally a GT, it was as loaded as you could get. Is there any reason that you are avoiding getting a Marti Report? This is a pretty special Cougar. Cougar #11 Standard GT, loaded Early Badges , show unit, July 4th 19...

Re: Steering column to firewall seal

Whoever makes the part makes it from an incorrect material. It is worthless. I went to the local Home Depot. In the roofing aisle they had black neoprene 1/32" sheet sold by the foot. I think it cost around a dollar for the 12" square piece that I bought to make one that wouldn't tear. Drawn out ste...
