Re: Hi from Nebraska. I am a new member and first time owning a Cougar

Looks like a fun driver. My convertible is kind of in that class too. For what it is worth, 1969 Cougars did not leave the factory with a 351 Cleveland. They would have had 351 Windsors in them.

Re: 67 gt

All Cougars from 1967 through 1973 got the sequential rear turn signals. With the repairs needed to get them and the head lights back up and working should give you some bargaining power.

Is it possible that this was an Eliminator test car done for magazines and / or promo pics? I mean, jeez, it even has the Eliminator rock...
