Just saw this listed NW of Chicago. Price is right, but would need a thorough inspection. Check it out:

Color: green? Lime Frost? Hard to tell. It looks very similar to one I didn't purchase off ebay a few years back, right down to the pushed in right front turn signal.
I would consider it to replace my now rusted out '67, and part with the GT that is awaiting restoration.

Sage Gold Metallic, Z code. Here it is on an XR7 with the paint in better condition. I bet the craigslist cougar would clean up nicely. Also known as Sauterne gold on a Mustang. Don't see very many cars paint this color. I'm in the process of deciding if I should return my 67 GT back to this original color. Seems to be a lot of different shades to this color depending on the mixing formula of the paint. I test sprayed a sample and it had more metallic and silver with a touch of green. I think it's one of those colors where no two are ever the same with todays paint formula.

As the owner of a Sage Gold Cougar that would also be my guess on the Craigslist find. Sage gold seems to look a bit more green in the shade.
'67 standard
