And then there were 3!

The last of the fire breathing big block Cougars were built in 1971. They featured the 429 Cobra Jet engine, and carried one of the highest factory horsepower ratings (370!) of any Cougar ever built. Sadly the times were not right and only a handful were built. The '71 Cobra Jet Registry is maintained by Mitch Lewis.

That looks like Chris Long's car. It really is a very well done car with a wonderful story behind it.

That's a great looking Cougar. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't this car get magazine coverage? It just looks very familiar. What the guess on its selling price? I say $70-75k.
