Re: Still the 1st Owner of this rare Cougar

...I was 23 to 25 when I owned this Cougar and I turn 74 next February. Fifty years has past as quickly as my old Cougar used to past other muscle cars back in the day. Amen brother. You need to come party w/us in Scottsdale this January. See the thread linked below. https://classiccougarcommunity....

Re: 1969 Cougar Convertible

Re: 351 Cleveland water pump leaking

Been a long time since I messed w/a C, but aren't they a PITA with the 2 gaskets between the front cover & the block, then the o/s of the front cover & the WP? Double the chances for leaks, no? If the WP or o/s gasket was leaking, I don't think it would pollute the area behind the TC cover, right? M...

At least it was a Mustang so you could call 1-800-Dynacorn and get almost a complete car in boxes dropped off in your driveway for 4 figures.
True, but then I would deny myself the pleasure of drilling out all of those factory spot welds, :wall: :lol: 8-)

Re: 67 or 68 in good condition

No worries Don, but you know me, and you know as an East coast guy I had to call you out on that one. By & large you are correct, & I've parted many a rusty POS, but have also been very surprised by some of the well-preserved cars I've come across (& bought) over the years. My wife's '66 Mustang (he...

Re: Still the 1st Owner of this rare Cougar

Me too on both counts. I had a triple bypass on Nov 27, 2017 and I'm feeling pretty good now. Lucky to have found my problem before I had a bad heart attack. So, my old car was one of 23.

Re: 351 Cleveland water pump leaking

Did you replace the water pump with a new/rebuilt unit when you had it off?
