This Cougar was ordered & purchased from Sunland Mercury in Glendale Arizona on June 23, 1968 and has lived its
entire life in dry sunny Phoenix, Arizona until I purchased it from the original owner in June of 2014. The car was
driven daily and have all records from purchase date as well. The engine is the "X code" 390 2bl with a C-6
Merc-O-matic transmission, Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Ice cold Whisper-Aire A/C with tinted glass and comes
with the original AM-FM stereo radio. It did have one repaint in 1997 and shows very well for it's age. There are a
few blemishes in the paint, but very nice driver-local car show quality paint. The car drives down the interstate
at 80 mph with no issues, headlight lids work as they should, has the updated sequential turn signal box with the
plasma LED bulbs installed. Numbers matching engine, heads and transmission are all original to the car. Original
275 rear end gears still in car. Front end is tight with new power steering cylinder and hoses, ball joints, tie
rod ends and drives straight. Engine was recently rebuilt with Comp thumper cam kit, sounds great when cruising to
car shows. Recently rebuilt the C-6 transmission, both having less than 1000 miles since done. Chrome bumpers
appear to be original and still show very well with no pitting in the corners as well as the driver's side mirror
looks great. The quarter window chrome is as nice as new, no pitting or blemishes. Brand new chrome magnum 500
wheels wrapped in BFG radials. Car comes with Original order sheet, Original window sticker and also have the
Arizona title and envelope that was mailed to the original owner on August 19, 1968. When rebuilding the engine, I
installed an original "S code" 4bl cast intake (original 2bl intake is included in the sale). Has a brand new
Holley 600 4bl carb installed with working choke. New window and door panel rubber seals & fuzzies. Rocker panel
moldings are nice driver quality with a few nicks & blemishes. The drivers seat is the most warn in the interior,
has had some cracks repaired, but still looks decent. The head liner is very nice and still tight. The dash pad is
straight and there is a small crack near the speaker. There are a few dings in the stainless trim around the
windshield. The console is nice and the light on the back of it works too. New gas tank & sending unit & gas guage
works. Also included in the sale is the "S tube" that comes off the underside of the air cleaner to the manifold.

This car is fun to drive, gets lots of thumbs up and still shows the 19 year old Grecian Gold paint pretty darn
well. All the lights in the interior work and so do the toggle switches on the wood grain dash. The only thing that
does not work is the console clock, I never checked it to see why. Wipers and foot pedal work as they should as
does the heater and blower motor on all speeds. The trunk pictures show rust, but I assure you it is a surface
powder like from being trapped under the mat. No rust in trunk or any other place on this dry climate car.

It is not very often you will come across a RUST FREE, Big Block, Auto with A/C of this caliber without having to
do a bunch of work before enjoying it. Many of you may know, it cost more to build one than to buy one already
ready to enjoy. This car is ready for a trip or any cruise that you desire.
