Also a nice S code XR7-G:
The car is very solid and has very minimal rust. One shock tower had a spot of rust where it is spot welded to the rear inner fender, and I have repaired that. I also did a pretty decent refresh to the engine bay while the motor was out for a refresh. It has a warm cam, but nothing that can’t be changed back to stock. It comes with a 3.25 Detroit TrueTrac differential, but also included is the original 2.75 open center section.
Almost all of the G parts are there. Royce Peterson viewed the car and told me the third horn is not original. The fog lights are right, the sunroof works, the wood shifter is there and in good condition.
The Hemisfair G is also still for sale. Same price as was a while back:
$18K for the car
$22K w/ the radar wheels and OEM FR-70 tires
Unfortunately Photobucket bit the bucket so the photos are no longer on line.
I have detailed photos of the car and am looking for a new place to post them.
I thought I had put some on Google Images, but cannot find them or a link now… so PM me
This is the newest photo from 2017. Car has always been garaged during the time I have had it.
Found the link. You will have to have a google account to access the pictures.
Yes. Originally Madras Blue ( Ford Gulfstream Aqua ) w/ white top, aqua interior. J code 302 4V automatic. A/C, PS, PDB, Tilt, headrests, Sunroof. Specially ordered for display at the 1968 Hemisfair in San Antonio TX.
There is a G for sale on BaT - this one used to be owned by a DCC member.
Last I saw it, it was in really nice shape. While you can’t really call a Cougar that has the XR7-G option a “low option” car, this G with a 2v F code engine, no sunroof and drum brakes all-around was probably about as inexpensive an XR7-G as one could purchase in 1968.
Looks like the seller (or a previous owner) has addressed some of those issues.
