'69-'70 Cougar Wanted - UPDATE - bought a car

Update 7-2-12 - We found a car locally on Craigslist and bought it. I'm disapointed we didn't find the "right" XR7, but this standard will have to do. I really appreciate everyone's help.

I'm looking for a straight rust free '69 or '70 Cougar preferrably an XR-7, but will defintely consider standard model Cougars. I'd like to find a stick shift car but I will consider automatics. It would also be preferred if the paint, chrome and interior were generally cruise night presentable as is and as original as possible. I'd prefer the car be drivable. I'm not interested in rare cars or high dollar restorations, our plan is to build a stout street car with a pump gas stroked 351W and overdrive stick transmission.

My ideal car would be a Dark Ivy Green '69 XR7 351W stick.

I have a nice project '70 Torino Cobra 429SCJ 4 speed 4.30 geared Drag Pack car and a very nice low mile '68 4 speed GTO for sale or trade.

I just bought a really beautiful rust-free 68 XR7 in the Chicago burbs last fall. It spent all its life in Cali and Vegas, then was moved out here several years ago and garage-kept and not driven in rain or snow. And there won't be any driving in rain or snow while she's my car. Not a chance.

I was looking for one with a manual trans too, but could not pass on my Cougar when she came along. Swap to a T5 down the road is something I'd love to do. Maybe in a couple years. I'm okay with the AT for now anyway.

Just keep an eye on Craigslist and EBay and something will come along.
