For sale rare 1967 Mercury Special Cougar big block S code Marauder 390 325hp, factory A/C, honest and correct original survivor. Correct original equipment under hood including original buck tag. I purchased this big block muscle Cougar several years ago from the 2nd owner, who had it stored with his large collection in an underground parking garage - this is the kind of survivor car comes along once in a lifetime. I'll do my best to describe it below:

Exterior: 98 percent original paint, still shines well. Good driver quality, great for Cars-and-Coffee or casual weekend shows. Would need repaint for serious concours duty. Many small dings from 49 years of use, they don't show in pics well, but there are several door dings on both sides and several dents in hood. Front bumper is bent on passenger side. Only appreciable rust on the car was a small area at bottom of rear window corner from water puddling there. I had that professionally repaired with new metal and the paint blended on the panel between the trunk and rear window. There is minor surface rust on inside lip of trunk lid, and on trunk floor. You could spray Metal Ready inhibitor on those spots if you were concerned - Cars are only original once, and the car is nice enough that it should be left as is. Original tinted glass in good condition, Magnum wheels were new 3 years ago. There is some minor pitting on chrome moldings, nothing horrible. Great looking car overall that gets compliments and thumbs up wherever I go in it.

Interior: Original save for repair to driver seat bottom, and in very good condition. Really clean and nice. Car was stored inside, and it shows. Original steering wheel, carpets, door panels, dash all very good. Small tear in driver arm rest, and headliner has a few splits at seams and will need to be replaced at some point. I think everything works on the car, right down to the horn, radio, and shift indicator light. A/C blows but not ice cold, needs recharge. Really a nice clean car that's ready to enjoy as is or take to the next level.

Mechanical: Starts, runs and drives out great. Sounds very healthy and barks the tires at will. Correct 1967 part numbers and date codes where they should be. According to the staffer I worked with, the original engine and trans were rebuilt, new Flowmaster exhaust installed, and most front suspension components, brakes, brake booster, and new fuel tank and sender were installed during his ownership. I took the car to a pro mechanic here locally to have the C70F carb rebuilt, and he thinks those updates were made, as the motor pulls strong and runs great with no smoke or noises. Really a nice tight driver with no appreciable squeaks or rattles.
