Testing the waters, thinking about selling the 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.

From what I understand an aftermarket conversion is NOT a reproduction part, just a conversion or a modification.

If they never existed in the first place, how could they be reproduced & from what?

Electronic headlight doors are a conversion but will never be sold as reproduction parts.

Reproduction parts implies that they copied and reverse engineered an original.
Good catch, we are changing the site to read "New" not Repro...
Cool, either way it's an interesting but expensive modification.

What is the switch under the ignition for?
I don't see rear defogger on the paperwork. Not the correct knob for the defogger.

Wondering if he did any work to justify the extra $4k over what he paid in February or if he's just trying to recover the auction fees and transport costs... https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1968- ... r-xr7-g-2/

He has done quite a few things to improve the car since his purchase. Once again it sounds like a good deal but I would want to see it in person.

Looking back at that BaT auction in early '20..Damn, if I was in the right frame of mind and had my Cougar energy flowing hard, that was a good buy!

So what is the price now? I'm gathering from comments about 28K?
