Why would you repaint a bright blue metallic car white?

Why didn't it meet the reserve?

I personally think it looks better in white. I know it’s a rare Cougar but nonetheless people like making cars their own. Nothing wrong with that. I bet it will bring good money if the Mecum crew treat it right. After watching their coverage for years they give Cougars a bad time.

The registry might be out of date. Mitch Lewis lists 16 model 92 J codes and Tom's Marti report says 18.

Model 92 - Cougar Convertible
J Code =16
6 - Trans = 16
6 - Bright Blue Poly = 8
M - White = 1
Color Unknown = 7 - 7 Early cars with incomplete data tag info but where serial numbers have been identified. All
of these cars are believed to have been promo/press cars and are believed to be bright blue metallic.
U - Trans = 0

Seems backwards that out of the 22 or 24 J code conv's built in 71 only 4 were U tran C6 auto XR7. Wonder why Mercury did this? Is their a reason they didn't build many auto trans with ram air in 71?
