eBay Listing: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Classics  /   /  By Jim Pickering

Mercury introduced the Cougar in 1967 as a bridge between Ford’s Mustang and Thunderbird. The performance/luxury hybrid combination worked really well — Motor Trend named the first-year model “Car of the Year,” and it accounted for nearly half of all Mercury’s sales that year.

The seller says 289-ci V8 – rated at 200 horsepower from the factory – “purrs like a Cougar should.” The C4 automatic shifts well, too. As an everyday car, the seller took care of “errands as needed and it ran and drove great.”

Red over black is a hard-to-beat color combination. And this seems to be in remarkable condition. The seller attached over 100 photos for a comprehensive virtual walk around. The car lived most of its life in the Oregon/Idaho high desert, so as you might expect, the underside looks rust free. The seller says the vinyl interior is mostly original, and it appears in clean and comfortable. These cars featured sequential turn signals, and the seller says the units in this car are fully functional.

A total of 38 1967 Cougars sold on eBay Motors over the past year. Good condition ones averaged around $7k, while great ones brought closer to $11k. Click here to see how this one is doing.
