WTB: 70 Cougar

#1

Post by 69DropTop » 11 Aug 2017, 09:31

My brother is looking for a '70 Cougar. He doesn't want a project or something in need of full restoration, but small projects would be ok. I think he prefers white with black or blue interior, hardtop or convertible, but is also open to other options. If you know of anything reasonably priced let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link. We ran across that car, but it's out of his budget.

Has a Windsor but is advertised as having a Cleveland, just sayin'.

The VIN is listed as OF94H500977, It should have a Windsor. It looks like a decent Cougar drop top. But I think it has 100K more miles then the owner thinks.
And how often do we see a build sheet in a add?

The engine tag is K203-A that is for a 351W.

just out of curiosity and trying to learn as much as I can about my favorite cars ever, why do you think it has 100k more than they think? Once again not trying to call you or the owner out, just wanting to know. I heard someone say a long time ago if the numbers on the odometer aren't all straight/in line with each other you can tell the odometer has been rolled, not sure how much faith I put in that theory though.

One can not tell by low quality CL pics. A dozen pics of the wear marks on the DS arm rest, console lid, steering wheel and original leather on the DS seat would give me more confidence.

I have a hard time seeing a 37,000 mile car needing to have all the seats recovered. I can tell that because the upholstery is not done correctly.

It is loose and not pulled tightly around the sides. The top of the front seats is not sown well. I will admit that with out seeing the car in person and inspecting the documents he has it could be a low mile car. He states something about having documents back to 1997, The car was 27 years old at that time. I think this maybe a good buy at maybe $14K to $17,500. But only the person who inspects it and buys it can say for sure.

I didn't notice the interior stuff or know what it should look like, but I was also thinking low to mid-teens on it, but just like you said someone would need to look at it and determine that for themself.
