Hey guys, long time lurker here, finally able to search for a Cougar! Chad’s the name, if you hadn’t figured it out. Just wanted to drop a quick hello. Searching for a plain ole vanilla Cougar, nothing super special, as I plan on modifying it along the lines of Wildcat/MaxEffort(those things are AMAZING). Oh, and Interceptor…
So I’ll be hanging around, speaking up more, now that I’m “on the prowl”!!! (hahaha)
Welcome. You’re just down the road… There are a few cats lurking around NM that a few people might be interested in selling… I can think of a few but none of those are in working condition, so this is definitely a good area of the country to find them. Just depends on the type of condition you’re after…
Thanks mo2872! We’re not too far away from each other. I’m just north of you up in the Oolagah/Talala area. Looking at your posts/photos, YOU’RE the guy I saw at Hogs and Hot Rods! I offered to buy your car!
Wow, no kidding? Sorry for the delayed response, but I’ve not had much time for the Cougar, the forums, etc. Contemplating many changes in my life at the moment, and some of them include the time spent with The Heap. You’re welcome to come check out The Heap, and the House of Heap any time, since we’re practically neighbors and all(by Oklahoma standards…anything within 20 mile is “neighbor”…). Heck, hit me with your best shot, The Heap might become yours.
Good luck in your search!
I drove 6 1/2 hours each way to look at a 67, the pictures the guy was sending were the actual car, a few years ago, BEFORE he made the not so wise decision to park it in his front yard, in Illinois.
So, the search continued and I found my 68 base model on Craigslist Phoenix and had it shipped to Just outside of Chicago where I live, the bad news is that it cost additional $$$ to have it shipped to me, the good news is that it has been a desert car it’s whole life so it is really solid as far as the frame and body go, I am sure this will more than outweigh the shipping cost in the long run.
