67/68 Cougar for a college in CA wanted

This is a long shot, but I am trying to find a 67 or 68 Cougar, mostly complete, needing restoration for a local college. They have a great automotive program, and I'm trying to help them out. The students have decided on a 67 or 68, they will not want any other year. This college is located in San Luis Obispo, CA. on the central coast. They have 2 sports teams named Cougars. The car will be a legacy car, and not be sold after completion.

I have already set up the donation of a 1968 parts car for them that has most of the trim and lights on the outside. The interior is pretty much missing on that donor car. (it has a backseat) I was hoping it would be a restoration candidate, but it is too far gone with body rot and damage. We couldn't tell before uncovering it after 20+ years.

They do have some funds to purchase a car, I'm not asking for straight up donations unless you are so inclined.

PM me if you have any leads, I would greatly appreciate it. Cougar on...

That's cool. I liked SLO, Morro Bay and Los Osos. SLO Brewery still in operation?

I honestly don't know if slo brewery is still in operation. They have a restaurant, so I guess so.
I think I found a car for them, but still willing to take a look at anything available. Deal is not sealed yet.
