Daily Driver 67 Cougar

#1

Post by wesleycameron67 » 18 Dec 2017, 10:01

Hey guys, I am new to this forum so here is the details of my car. Its a 67, it had a 289 with a two barrel, power steering, power brakes, AC, and a radio. It was an automatic but I have converted it to a t5. Not sure of it's original color, I would have to check the vin, but now it is black with black interior.
It has been my daily driver since 2014 and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Great picture and nice to hear that there are other working cats out there. How many miles have you logged so far?
1968 XR-7 Augusta Green, J-Code, 5 litre, Autolite 6100, 5 spd, convertible with heated seats, cruise control and rear sway bar.

BTW, I think electronic ignition is pointless.

I have logged 40,000 miles on it since 2014. It will slowly get better as I keep doing little things to it while I am in college. This morning I installed 3.80/1 gears, and I hope to build a monte carlo bar and subframe connectors this week for it.

Right on for the daily driver! I could never have the nerve to daily an older car in this city, too much risk of someone hitting you or stealing it! Biggest fear would be getting hit and having to have it fixed not too mention the safety level in an accident isn't the greatest in these classics.
