Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

That is really cool, was the car known to the registry? At some point it would be cool to let the previous owner take it for a spin once you get it going. The Cyclone is a super cool find as well, what are your plans for it? Any pics?

Re: 67 tilt away column locking teeth will not move

Is there a chance the turn signal switch is not 100% seated? It is imperative the correct screws are used. I always recommend installing these pins to be safe. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/15384-Catch-Locking-Pawl-Tilt-Steering-Column-Repro-1967-1969-Mercury-Cougar-/-1967-1969-Ford-...

Can anyone spot the one part from a 68 and one part from a 69?
The console door and the rectangular antenna base.
I did not catch the antenna base. I noticed the 68 console door and what appears to be a 69-70 stainless deck moulding. Good eyes! You one upped me.

Re: Better way to change spark plugs in a 351C ?????

When you thread them back in attach a length of vacuum hose to the tip. Much easier to get them started that way

No such thing as a repro door... We just got a Grade A in.

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

NO! Typo stays! Best conversation piece ever! Folks have come from all over the world to our shop and love seeing, picturing and talking about said misspelling. It would be OK by me if we did two runs, one corrected and one authentic. My guess is most folks would go for authentic but I am sure there...
