Re: 429CJ Cougar Trivia!

3spd - was standard cougar equipment - not optional.

NO - There are several XR7 429CJ sunroof cars on the registry. But good guess.

Bill,

Just to be clear those that wanted a drop top - had to give up the a/c, it was available with a hardtop.

The reason was weight - The combo of A/C, C6 and a Conv would have reqired larger tires, which would have caused a wheel well clearance problem.
