Hi…former Mustang Monthly [RIP] editor Rob Kinnan and I are looking for several Cougars to host in a Cobra Jet display at MCACN in November to coincide with the introduction of our Cobra Jet book (don’t want to be shameless, so not posting it here ) that comes out this month.
So you may wonder, “Why don’t you get one of the cars from the book?”
And that’s a fine question, and here’s some answers:
Car pictured is from CA, which is a big hike to the Land of Lincoln
FL owner doesn’t want to bring his juicy Competition Blue 429 car
Have a name of the TX owner of the yellow GT 429, but no contact info
Hence this post!
Here’s what we are looking for–two cars:
1970 Cougar with 428 CJ (non-Eliminator)
Honorable mention: 1969
1972 Cougar GT with 351 CJ
Honorable mention: 1971 Cougar 429…well, not really honorable mention, but prob equal to a 1972 GT with CJ. Prob will be easier to find but less gee-wiz.
Do you own one of these cars in “presentable” condition? We’d like to talk with you…thank you!
We are going for a decent representation of cars for 1968-74, but can only show 12 of them.
One of the cars has been in a barn and is currently receiving a repaint. It’s not going to be perfect, so you may not have to worry. Want to email me a few pics that I can go over with the promoter to see? diegorosenberg (at) me (dot) com
