Wow! That is sex on a stick (so to speak). Good luck with your sale, sure wish I had the $$$.

No shoulder harnesses or coat hooks? I like the color combination.

I choose not to reinstall the coat hooks and shoulder harness. I have them and they go with the sale.

This Cougar runs excellent and gets compliments everytime I take it out. The pictures do not do this special Cougar justice.



Here is a walk around video that I just posted on YouTube.
Please call if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Rick, I would recommend that you list your Cougar on Bring-a-Trailer. You have a great Cougar and with a proper listing you will have a better chance at a sale. Please don’t take offense, but I believe your lower price is still quite high. Here is a link to a 1968 XR-7 with a 6 speed:

It might give you an idea of what the current market will bring. Again, you have a great Cougar. Good luck with your sale.


From an outsiders view and not seeing either car in person, I would think an original matching drive train 68 GT, 4 speed car would be worth significantly more than a 289 car that has a transplanted engine and an automatic. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE both these cars. I hope both sell for top dollar!! There seems to be much greater mass appeal for Cougars of late, which is good & bad for everyone. The GT’s dark blue paint job look stunning, again I haven’t seen in person.

Good luck to both.

I just noticed this was also an Original GT from the Marti-report. Seeing both cars in person would be beneficial. The only thing on the BAT car, that I would be concerned with is the rear frame damage that is called out. Good luck to both.

Click on the YouTube video link in the add. I also have high resolution pictures and videos via Dropbox that can be sent.


Thank you,
