Re: 1967 Rear Window Defroster

Thanks for confirming, Royce. I guess most of the '67s I have had or have looked at were the later ones rather than the earlier ones. I knew there were other sheet metal differences but did not know about this one until this occurred.

Re: 1967 Rear Window Defroster

I gave a friend of mine an NOS '68 style defroster kit a few years ago. He ended up not installing it, as the hole in the center of the package tray sheet metal of his Cougar would not accommodate it, and he didn't want to cut it.

Re: Replacement interiors

I agree with Jeff 100%. I have done just what he recommends on more than one occasion, and been very happy with the results. The one thing that I've done, though, is cut the old basketweave inserts out of '67 -'68 seats and reused them. And...be sure to get the correct welting from SMS or Original A...

Re: Window Sticker Shock , what did your Cat(s) cost when new ?

To answer Andrew's question about deluxe wheel covers: yes, those were the basic ones. If no optional wheel treatment wa ordered (or the Decor Group was not specified), the car was equipped with Mercury specific hub caps.

My '68 standard was $3895. It is a pretty basic car, only 6 options including AC.

Re: looking for dealer emblems for my GT-Es

I agree with Randy...and would also suggest etsy. And, this is the voice of experience talking...be patient. I wanted dealer license plate frames from the original selling dealer of my Cougar, Marin Bay Lincoln Mercury in San Rafael, CA, and it took me a good 15 years of solid looking to find them. ...

Re: Homelink Rearveiw Mirror

You might also try loosening the glue with some acetone before removing the tab from the windshield. The glue originally used was basically Krazy Glue. I have done this numerous times with success.
