Re: How can I reuse a Mustang sport mirror on the Cougar?

Project of the month forum has a thread on this very subject. I’ve got some pictures of my ‘69 mirror install there.

Re: Day 2 Restoration Advice

https://classiccougarcommunity.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7487 Like your car, mine was a base Cougar convertible. Solid and dry but needed help. I envisioned a solid driver capable of handling lots of miles with better performance without being tied to only OEM parts and designs with the limitati...

Re: Day 2 Restoration Advice

Where is your line in the sand between day 2 and restomod drawn? I ask because I am working on my ‘69 convertible restomod with a retrofitted 351 Cleveland and manual trans. This winter I’ll install the TKO-600 and swap the drum brake, 28 spline, 2.7x open 9” for an Auburn, 3.70, 31 spline, rear Wil...

Re: Cougar Rear Shock Question/issue: Answered!

Throwing in my 2 cents here. I used a Bilstein shock (made by Race Car Dynamics) from Street or Track. These are sized for a Mustang. I also removed the big rubber and steel spring perch/clamp setup when I installed my Flex Form composite springs. By doing this the shorter shock works well. Damping ...

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

I drove across town yesterday evening to work on a friends '65 Corvair he is building for the Grassroots Motorsports $2019 Challenge. Had fun, got dirty, then got rained on during the drive home.

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

Saw two more 1970 black convertibles when I was on Woodward last night. One had MI plates, 70 CAT, I believe. The other wad WI plates and was parked at a hotel in Bloomfield. For those keeping score at home, four Cougars in three days at what is billed as the largest cruise in the world.

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

BTW-not sure who I may have met tonight but thank you to the gentleman who gave me two ATSOTC magazines while I was stopped on Woodward. Your white 1973 Cougar looked really nice! Not sure if you're on this site but wanted to post a Thank you!

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

Had to tweak the clutch adjustment a bit and remove and center the steering wheel. Was still a bit off but went out for a few laps of Woodward Ave tonight. Crowds and cars are out in full force!

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

Yes I did! Met my Dad who just recently got his 1963 Corvette on the road for a few laps of Woodward Avenue.

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

My son and I put some miles on tonight and it felt GREAT to be behind the wheel for the first time in 10 months. I need to tweak the clutch linkage to bring the pedal up off the floor, figure out why I lost LH turn signal sequencer and front turn signal, and do some brake bedding. Suspension is amaz...
