Re: 68 GT 4 Speed

Crazy that this Cougar is here in Arizona and I have never seen it before. Looks solid, and if someone is serious I can check it out for them.
I would think a top notch 390 GT 4 speed Cougar XR7 could possibly bring as much as $50K with good options and desirable color combo.

Re: Vacuum motor repair options?

Darren from Critter Creek contacted me directly and is willing to work with me to get as many rebuilt ones as I need at a reasonable price. Thanks Darren! I am willing to try the rebuild kits offered by WCCC as well, but it is good to know that for those restorations needed a high end like new part ...

Re: Vacuum motor repair options?

I agree with the assessment that the original finish on the 1969-1970 actuators was zinc dichromate (yellow zinc). Thanks Don for the new seal listing info. Nearly every core I have holds vacuum on the lower port fine, but none hold vacuum on the upper port, so I need your new seal kits. Let me know...

Vacuum motor repair options?

I need a working 1969-1970 headlight actuation vacuum motor. Is critter creek the only option?
Sorry but I just can't afford $685+shipping. :shock: I have bought entire parts cars for less.
I have several core actuators, but none seem to be able to pull in both directions.
Thanks, Scott Taylor

Re: 1969 Cougar Standard Hardtop

Taking any serious offers on the car now. Quite surprised that there has been minimal interest in the car, despite being rust free, having less than 100K original miles, all original sheet metal and interior, Grade A grille, tilt column, working turn signals and brake lights with new sequencers, new...

Original Engine Reunited again with my Cougar XR7

In November 2018, I was fortunate to buy a very clean 1967 Cougar XR7 289 4 speed project car (7F93C5791XX) from Larry Quay's family. I really fell in love with this Cougar's great color combo Inverness Green paint with Saddle Tan interior - just like the original XR7 magazine ad. The only downside ...

Re: '67 Sunroof cars? Anyone got the facts?

The Yellow California car referred to in this post surfaced here in Arizona last year still with it's original black California plates. It is a true 1967, 390 XR7 Cougar. I was able to inspect the car in detail. The sunroof is not original to the car. It is actually from a GM car (Buick?). Note the ...
