I was curious just how rare Tilt-A-Way steering was. This is from "Cougar By The Numbers". So just a bit over 2% for 1967 so a tad shy of "standard".

Tilt-A-Way was an option. As was AC, 289 V4 and auto. And of course XR7 group. As normal at the time the base car was pretty bare bones. Looks like your 67 came pretty well equipped.

My guess is you've never run a "Marti Report" https://www.martiauto.com/martireports.cfm which will give the breakdown on options that came with your cat. The $18 report will give pretty basic option info but the "Deluxe" @ $46 will add dates of order, production etc.

Hope you and your boys have a great time with Esmerelda!
Thanks. I've yet to do the Marti report. When I first got her, everyone here was kind enough to tell me a lot about the car based on the VIN number... and I guess I didn't need to know more at that point.
:)

And yeah. She's my daily driver... so we are having a great time with her.
