First a little back ground. I have a 67 xr7. It’s in rough shape but I’m slowly getting it cleaned up. It’s a daily driver which means it will see the winters of Michigan. Where I can I’m putting in stock or stock type parts. It came with the original leather buckets that need to be redone, there’s a set of standard buckets in it right now. It has a 69 302 and a T&C 3+1 in place of the 289 auto. I’m using the original center console bottom and saved the top pad in the garage. So I’m not trying to change how it would have looked from the factory is what I’m getting at.
Now, the car I had before the xr7 was a 72 2dr maverick w/AC it worked fine before I put the 302 in it. I have all the factory brackets for the engine to install the AC pump, and when I scrapped (had to) the car I stripped just about everything out of it. Including the entire AC. Looking at picture of the stock cougar AC box I can see there are some small differences, but nothing that shows that it couldn’t be used in the cougar. Right now I need to rebuild my cowl on the cougar and I was thinking about installing the maverick AC box while I was at it. I don’t mind making a few minor changes for something like that, that doesn’t really show.
Maybe Don could shed a little light on what I’m thinking. And BTW this was the reason I have the center AC panel in my dashboard in some of my pictures.
So the question is, does anyone else think it would fit?
