Cougar 1968

Title Status --
Exterior Color Medium Aqua Metallic
Interior Color Black


This 1968 Mercury Cougar is a great V8-powered classic that also has some distinctive premium features you want in a Merc - including power windows. The result is a coupe that's very vintage and also quite distinct.

Even from a distance, you can recognize the quality of the fundamentals in this coupe. The body panels look crisp; the chrome is complete and shining; and the hallmark hidden headlight front end is distinctly sharp. So it knows how to hold up the elegance you want in an upper-level Mercury. But there's also something more here. This one loves to have a hint of the classic cruiser attitude. You see it in the competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. And the paint is the factory-correct Aqua Metallic. It has an aged-in style you'd see in a Saturday night cruiser that was out in the 1970s, and it even has plenty of custom pinstriping to back up that feeling. So while the price leaves room in your budget for upgrades/updates, there's also something quite fun about how the full package is presented right now.

The cruiser attitude continues inside. But where the exterior does it with vintage style, this one gives you the right upgrades. Modern front bucket seats, a center console with cup holders, and a fully upgraded stereo with large speakers and Bluetooth - they all give this a great anytime driver feeling. You even have power windows so that you can take down all the glass without ever leaving the driver's seat. Plus, this is a factory air conditioning car, and so you can get it serviced if you feel like staying extra-cool while showing off the pillarless hardtop profile. You'll find that the derails keep this interior feeling quite classic, but everything from the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel to the brighter courtesy lights give this the feeling of a thoughtfully upgraded machine.

This was born a C-code coupe, and the engine bay really shows off an honest and correct presentation of the 289 cubic-inch V8. It has a cool look of originality, right down to the tags. But you can also see this one has received the right maintenance, including a newer alternator and wires. It's a strong-running powerhouse, and you take proper control with a three-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs uphold the reputation of an easy cruising Cougar.

This is a true classic with some nice upgrades, and it's available now for an obtainable price. Don't let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
