1974 Mercury Cougar
Factory 460 Car
What about a Tilt Steering Column? Then there are the Disc Brake Spindles, Power Seats, & Power Windows.
The Cool parts are Factory Tach, Factory Gauges, and the best yet, a Factory AM/FM Stereo with 8 Track Tape Deck.
There are many parts you could use on your Project Car or Truck, Street or Street Rod. Just think about all that is there. Give me a call or email me for more info.
Don't forget I rebuilt the engine before parking it with New Pistons, Rings, Bearings, Oil Pump and the rest of the parts needed to do a first class rebuild including the Heads.
Buy the whole car for $3,000. and save a whole lot more. You can't scrounge around junk yards and find what you need for less. Not to mention the time to find it and all the gas used to go to all of them.
Don't wait too long. It is heading to the Crusher if I can't sell it.
If I can't sell the whole car I will part it out.
Buy what you need or want or buy the whole car.

This listing is for a Very Rare One of a Kind 1974 Cougar XR-7. It is the only one of 91,670 Special Ordered with a 460 4 bbl and the Option Package it has.
It was a Great Car but it has been sitting since 1988 and the body has developed some Rust in the corners of the doors and lower part of one quarter. There are a few places in the floors about the size of a hand that are getting weak. The Vinyl Top needs to be replaced but the Roof is still pretty solid and the Frame is Very Solid with No Signs of any Rust.
I used it as a daily driver from about 1986 till about Sept 88. In 1987 I pulled the engine and completely rebuilt it with all new parts. Pistons to Valve Seals. I did clean the gas tank and flush the fuel line and pump, and pulled the carb for a rebuild and started the engine several years ago and it ran great.
I did find out that 1974 to 1976 Ford Gran Torino Elites & the Mercury Montego have the same body panels and doors as the 1974-76 Cougar so it might not be that difficult to take care of the rust issues.
This Cougar was Special Ordered with every option I have ever heard of and then some. I ordered a Marti Report and found that this Cougar is the only one out of 91,670 Cougars sold in 1974 that has all the Options it came with.
Power Steering, pwr brakes, Air and Cruise, Tilt wheel, Pwr Windows and door locks, Black Leather Interior with Split Bench Seats and Arm Rest. Electric rear window defrost, delayed wipers, Factory Tach with a 5 Gauge Cluster with Amps and Clock at top and Fuel, Oil, and Temp below. It has an AM FM Stereo 8 Track, 3:25 posi rear with 31 spline axles. Trailer Tow Package Class II and Factory 460 4bbl engine with C-6 Trans. and Black Vinyl Roof. This car and engine combo is Numbers Matching.
The Marti Report I Ordered shows that in 1974, there were 91,670 Cougars sold. Of those, 2,913 had 460 engines. OF those cars only 104 had Black Vinyl Roofs of those cars only 67 had Cruise Control, of those only 40 had AM FM Stereo 8 Track Radios, of those only 4 had Electric Rear Window Defrosters, and only 1 of all those had Trailer Tow Package Class II and My Cougar Is That Car.
Interesting Trades I would consider that come to mind are a nice Street Bike Motorcycle. No Crotch Rockets. I'm too old for that. I just want a nice late 90s to 2000s 750 to 1100 Honda, Yahmaha, Suzuki, or Kawasaki, I would be also interested in the New Old Style Triumphs as well.
You can contact me via email or call me, 704-516-8033. I have lots of pictures I can email. Thanks.
