Newly listed G on E-Bay

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

Not Mine:
This is a project car that was bought in US and moved to Canada. It would need a lot of work.. but it IS a G.

Looks like a pretty solid project. 62 X code 390 G's vs 296 S code G's. More rare, but not more desirable.

This G looks like a twin to the G that was for sale in Florida. I think the Florida G was a S code Hertz car. Over all I think it would be a heck of a project but it's a car worth saving for sure.
