Tim Google Kevin Marti and look for a "car report" it will tell you where it was sold and how it was equipped from the factory well worth the cost.

Have you provided the VIN to the CCOA National Database? If not please do and when you do you can ask if there is any past history already listed for it. Go to cougarclub.org to register your VIN.

My XR7 GT 4 speed was built in San Jose not long after yours but doesn’t have tilt or AC. I have 8R93S508195. What’s your color combo?

Tim has been getting no results... maybe a public request will help? Maybe there is nothing to be learned?
