Overview Of Entire Vehicle: *Condition #3++

This is a beautiful 1968 Mercury Cougar 2 door Hardtop in amazing condition inside and out. This car is very close to a true survivor, as it has mostly original paint and chrome with mostly original interior. This has always been a well kept and always garaged car its whole life. It was sold new in California at Boyer Motors in LA where it stayed until we brought it to Arizona here. It is totally rust free with a perfect body that has an amazing finish. With mostly original Saxony Yellow paint that looks absolutely amazing still, with all the original chrome and trim. This car is very well documented with only 99k original miles showing as if it only has 30k miles. It has the original Marty report, tons of original manuals and books, original warranty information showing original owners name, and the original California black plates that have been on the car since new with the original Boyer Motors license plate frames. This is just absolutely an amazing find with the original numbers matching 289ci V8 with a Factory 4-speed. It was originally a 2-barrel car but has but lightly upgraded with a 4-barrel intakes, aluminum radiator, and engine dress up kit but includes all the original equipment with the car. It will be hard to find a nicer one out there, this is just a real straight up top notch classic and a fine example of a 1968 Cougar.
