Prototype Shelby with Cougar Dash

I had heard of the two "Quarter Horse" prototype Mustangs that, among other things, got Cougar XR-7 dashes. Just found out about this prototype 1968 Shelby GT350 that got an early, experimental 351 Cleveland (all production '69 and '70 GT350s got 351 Windsors) and the Cougar dash - which I guess She...

Re: XR7-G featured in this month's Hemmings Muscle Machines

Finally read the article and I see that that was Fran's G which he had restored.

Beautiful car.

This is a picture I snapped of it at Carlisle in '09 which, according to the article, is where the current owner saw and purchased it.

Re: XR7-G featured in this month's Hemmings Muscle Machines

Picked that up last night - wow, very neat that this G is new to the registry! Hemming's Muscle Machines is a terrific magazine, and someone there obviously likes Mercury Cougars as they have had numerous features on them and even a few on the covers. In a very sad related note, looks like 19 car ma...

Re: 68 G sun roof

Since Golde (parent company to ASC) started in Germany, there are also lots of German cars (VW, BMW, Mercedes) with Golde/ASC style sunroofs, both power and hand cranked. This is good to know because they are a great source of wrecking yard parts, and even new parts as BMW actively supports it's vin...

Re: 68 G sun roof

Also, keep in mind that on sunroof equipped XR-7s (which of course includes Gs) the overhead consoles had to be moved forward a little bit and a special leather wrapped bracket was fabricated that attached to the front to make a place for the sun visor ends to pop into.

Re: 68 G sun roof

Kind of tough to get an exact measurement on my G, but mine is approx. 19 3/4" x 39".
