1968 ARTIC WHITE COUGAR XR7. LOADED!!! 302 4-BBL, POWER STEERING, POWER DISC BRAKES, AIR CONDITIONING, COUGAR VALVE COVERS AIR BREATHER AND WHITE PARCMENT BUCKET INTERIOR. Structurally outstanding car. Born and raised in sunnly Los Angeles California. Owned by a Ford/Mercury Excecutive for most of its life.
The Cougar was envisioned to be a more elegant, high line Pony car that would exude a bit more class and yet still encompass the qualities that made the Mustang so popular.
As with any other collectible, the greater number of options enhances the car's appeal. The Cougar is no exception. If you are interested in a Cougar, try to get one that is equipped with the XR-7 package, which was introduced in January of 1967. Much was made of the Cougar's Euro theme and the XR-7 accentuated this. In the interior the dash was covered with burled walnut applique while the regular warning lights in the right hand dash pod were replaced with three gauges for fuel, water temperature and amps. A 6,000 rpm tachometer was housed in the right dash pod, complementing the 120 mph speedometer on the left pod. The clock, which was located in between the two large pods was relocated to the center console, underneath the radio on the XR-7. Adding to the European flair, was a row of Jaguar style toggle switches above the center vent which controlled various interior lights and an overhead console which contained warning and map lights. Also included in the XR-7 was leather and vinyl upholstery. XR-7 identification was located on the passenger side of the dash and on the C-pillars.
