Car description

So you want a classic convertible, but you also want something rare and luxurious? This 1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 tribute convertible gives you all of this with serious V8 power and a value price.
The Cougar was built to be a Mustang in a dinner jacket, and this deeper shade of exterior red just seems to deliver on this sporty sophistication. Plus, the hood scoop and iconic Cragar SS wheels further this premium performance image. 1973 is very important to Cougar fans. The following year would switch platforms where the Cougar would grow in size, weight, and there was no convertible option. The 1974 Cougar was no longer the Mustang's upscale companion, which is why this final-year convertible has a forever-coveted place in vintage car crowds. Besides, there's just something exceptionally cool about cruising around in a Mercury where the full bright trim (from the waterfall grille to the stylized bumper/taillight combo) is this complete and pristine.
Beneath the newer black electric folding roof is a high-quality black interior. The XR7 package was the top of the line for the Cougar, so for this tribute car, you can certainly expect some great features. It starts with the high back bucket seats that have been recovered in velour so that it's much more comfortable to cruise around on sunny days with the top down. For the driver, the experience is a great mix of original components and upgrades. You'll love the period-correct premium features like the wood paneling on the dash and the AM/FM stereo with working 8-track! And as a true driver's vehicle, this Cougar has been upgraded with a sporty three-spoke steering wheel, B&M shifter, auxiliary gauge package, and hood-mounted tachometer.
Open the hood and you'll see some serious power. It starts with Ford's legendary 351 Cleveland V8. It looks nice with bright valve covers, air topper, and steel braded hoses. Plus, this one has the performance upgrades of a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers. You might love the power and rumble this motor makes, but that's far from the whole story. This has a three-speed automatic transmission that connected to rear end running a 3.11 ratio. So this one is set up for all-day highway cruising whenever you want. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this is the classic convertible you won't hesitate to drive any day of the week.
Mercury made only around 4,400 convertible Cougars in its final year, and less than 1,300 were born non-XR7s like this one. So just imagine how many have survived to be this complete and attractive today. And at this affordable price, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
