Car has (claimed) 86,000 original miles on it. Looks to be a good solid car and has been in New Mexico and Colorado all of its life. It does wear a replacement door from a green '67 XR7, so it had some damage there at some point. Irritating that this door has non-tinted glass.
I even found the faded yellow cellulose strips in the front marker lights when I removed them.
It's a basement car for options, but it does have a few:

8 1968
R Built at San Jose
91 Cougar 2-Door Hardtop
C 289-2V V-8 Engine

65A Cougar 2-Door Hardtop
D Nordic Blue Paint, Ford #3077-A
1B Blue Crinkle Vinyl Bucket Seats
23A Scheduled for build January 23, 1968
51 Denver DSO (District Sales Office)
5 3.00 Conventional Rear Axle
W C-4 Select Shift Automatic Transmission

Your vehicle was equipped with the following features:
- 7.35X14-4 Ply Rated White Sidewall Tires
- Power Steering
- Air Conditioner - Whisper-Aire
- Tinted Glass
- Deluxe Seat Belts
- Door Edge Guards
- Wheel Covers
- Front and Rear Bumper Guards

the boxes keep rolling in with parts. I'll be busy when it comes back from paint.

Im a bit worried about reinstalling the door glass- should be an adventure :)

I would love to find a stock blue steering wheel (it currently has a wood wheel).

Ill try to post pics if anyone is interested as I progress.

I have a Wellington Blue, parchment top, parchment interior, 390 4V, and 4 speed. Might consider selling for the right price.
