Ray;
Are you going to sell the door trim from that one? If so how good are they and how much for them.

Every part on this car is for sale. I generally use 60-70% of Don's catalog price on my stuff for friends. Send me a list of items you need. BTW, the dash stuff is beautiful on this car. It say buried under 3 inches of pine needles for decades.

OMG...

Where were you three months ago. I am almost done converting my 69 “XR7” wheel to a standard wheel... walking cougar, wood grain....
I have been selling Cougar parts for 35+ years and have been a member here on CCC for over 5 years so I am not very hard to find.

This is a 70 XR7 three spoke wheel. I believe the center wood grain is specific to the XR7 and the wheel rim wood grain may be darker.

ACP is the manufacturer of the repro 1969 rim blow wheel that WCCC sells. I sent ACP
an email 2 days ago asking about the 1970 rim blow wheel. This was their response "We are in the process of manufacturing it but we don’t have an ETA." Don't know how long you can wait but looking at the pictures of the '69 wheel on WCCC, it is worth the wait!!... unless you don't have $600 for a new wheel.
