Re: 1968 GTE xr7 For Sale in Washington DC

The owner of 40 years contacted me wanting help re-homing his beloved GTE. The 427 is long gone and replaced with a 400hp 428cj. He tried to keep it away from winter driving but it has had some rust repair and as evidenced by the shock towers needs some more TLC. It is a driver as it sits. He is as...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

All, I see that the lenses are just standard cougar of that year. It appears that the taillight grills are standard for a GTE. I took one apart for you guys. The bar itself looks like a piece of extruded alluminum cut to fit each taillight grill rim. Held on by three sheet metal screw into the midd...

Re: 1968 Convertible Conversion

Like usual progress has been slow but my project is moving forward. I always want to balance family time over this project. I have stripped and welded some holes on the drivers side front fender. The holes were there from long sheet metal screws that a previous owner had drilled through the lower al...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I think you have done excellent research in verifying the GT E. The next step I would do if I was the owner. Pay Jim Pinkerton and/or Jon Benoit expenses to come look at it and verify all your findings. If Jim concurs with your findings it's a done deal legit GT E. The meaning of Post #13 sure has ...

Re: 68 vs. 69 hood ridge lines

Here is a link that might help you. I’m sure if the measurements are the same the fiberglass of the scoop can be massaged to fit the contour of the hood on a 1969.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I think one off parts and the prototype Cougars are very intriguing. Henry Ford II’s Cougar is no exception. If you look at HFII’s XR7S bars and the red GT-E bars they are definitely different. HFII’s look chrome and they end at the first and last rib like the XR7S prototype Cougar (which was copied...

Re: Forgotten Cougar found, now the fun begins

Kevin welcome to the Classic Cougar Community. It’s great to have another new member. Your Cougar looks like a great project. Even the dash pad is straight. They usually warp with heat over the years. I hope everything is going well with your wife that’s one of the most important things in life. God...
