Questonable G for sale on Ebay.

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.

Questonable G for sale on Ebay.

Post by 1968XR7G » 12 Apr 2015, 18:56

I have seen this car listed on Craig's list in California with two different listings. One listing has a picture of the car with a G mirror on the drivers door
and one a piller badge on the driver side and wrong hood scoop. The other listing on Craig's list has a picture of the interior no correct console,no wood
shifter handle and no G badging on the right side of the dash, On the exterior of the car incorrect hood scoop/front and rear valance's no hood pins or
correct badging on the passenger head light door. The listing on Ebay has only one picture. Here is the Ebay id http://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-mercury-co ... 1835115240. And Craigs list links.http://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/4922748678.html http://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/4908785772.html

These listings are one way on how not to sell a car. One picture, yikes. Most buyers should ask more question and request more pictures. The vin number would tell exactly what the car is G or not.
