Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

You can post anything else you want. Like, for example, the fact that you know for certain your car is not the 428 CJ XR-7 GT that Don Nicholson once owned and drove on the strip. Are you aware that once you post something on ebay and then another bid is received that it will not let you edit it? Fr...

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

This is a fraudulent statement intended to mislead bidders: "On Oct-18-18 at 14:44:38 PDT, seller added the following information: I have just been told that there is supposed to be a photo of Dyno Don Nicholson drag racing a black stock looking 1968 Cougar R-Code car in a late 1968 or early 1969 is...

Re: 1968 Cougar Heater Core Replacement With AC

The factory shop manual gives a great step - by step procedure for removing the AC / heat box and shows proper connections for the hoses too. You don't need to remove the console since you will leave the defrost / fan assembly in place. However, removing the console makes it easier, as does removing...

Re: 68 R Code

The scariest part was cutting the holes for the headrest ferrules. Thankfully my measurements were accurate. It is laying in the car waiting for the bottom half of the seat which I believe will be done tomorrow afternoon. You can see remnants of wrinkles on the seat, which will disappear once the ca...

Re: 68 R Code

After the figure seams are attached to the frame the hard part is turning the cover out and stretching it over the back of the seat. IT was quite a struggle, but I finally got it on without ripping anything.

Re: 68 R Code

You start with the seat cover inside out. That way you can set hog rings in place to secure the figure wires to the seat frame in the proper place.
