In 1969, Cougar Leads the Way in New Features and Value

1969 Cougar Leads the WayA completely new sculptured body, a lower, wider, and longer profile, a convertible version, a new roofline, ventless side windows, and an all-new “instrument and command” panel were some of the changes for the 1969 Mercury Cougar extolled in the brochure Lincoln-Mercury Cougar 1969: The Winner Leads the Way! featured here on Classic Cougar Community.

The brochure goes through all the new features for ’69 in detail, as well as listing some of the options available. It’s a must-see for any Cougar fan, and will probably leave the 1969 guys drooling and/or preening.

Luxury options, dimensions and specifications, and power options–even the ram air option for the 428-CJ are all listed. There is even a quiz on page 15 to test your Cougar knowledge!
