2018 NPD Cougar Catalog - XR7-G

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.

2018 NPD Cougar Catalog - XR7-G

#1

Post by Rarecat » 20 Nov 2017, 12:02

Last Friday I drove the G down to Ocala for a photoshoot for the next edition of their Cougar parts catalog. NPD usually uses cars from their collection for their artwork but they already used their only qualifying Cougar (year wise) for their inaugural catalog. I got the car detailed by a pro as prep. I also had one of the BF Goodrich T/A radials do a tire separation on the trip down just to add to the total experience. If photobucket had not lost their mind I'd share some pictures...Big thanks to Greg Taylor for the referral!

Keep your eye out for the new catalog next year!

Sounds great. Why don’t you upload pictures here in the gallery? No need for photobucket.

I received my catalog today. Great cover picture. Your black G looks great. The only downside was my cover was ripped on the corner but it didn’t take away from how striking of a Cougar you own.

If you ordered the original will they send this new one automatically or do you have to request it?
