Needed a second car to replace my daily driver. Pop had it in the back yard, he bought it for the engine. I saw the car and showed interest in it for a quick build to get on the street. Started scrubbing and painting and before long it went past a driver to more of a restoration. Interior is done. Engine compartment is done and engine back in. Been parked for ten years now because I don't have the funds or time to drive 200 miles every weekend to work on it like I did for the entire summer of 93.
1970 Mrecury Cougar (Gold Metallic)
351 Cleveland, Edelbrock 4 barrel intake and Holley carb. Close ration 4 speed manual trans.
Was a medium gold metallic. Paint will be Competition Gold (Mercury) or Grabber Orange (Ford). Kinda wish I liked vinyl tops because it had a unique hounds-tooth pattern on it. Debating on Eliminator stripes, but will definitely have a front chin spoiler and rear wing.
Stock, 1 inch drop.
Wheel and Tire
15x8 Magnum 500's and BFG's
