Cougar vs Mustang - Simple Differences List

Hey Fellahs, We've all heard it more times than we can count: "Oh, a Cougar. They're the same as a Mustang." So out of curiousity, I thought it would be interesting to compile a list of basic components that the Cougar shares with Mustang for various model years. I'm not talking about a fully detail...

Re: Detailing the Engine Compartment.

A question for the more experienced. Is there a way to simulate the original finish on the fan blades without actually dipping it? Seems like I would need a lot of paint to do it the factory way. Maybe spray it on fairly thick and let it run a tiny bit? Or is that going to look half-fast? You might...

Re: Scottsdale Auction Week 2019 - Fantasy Bid

Wow no love for the cougars Yeah, $47k for a CJ convertible? Seems like a no-brainer to me, but I'm guessing the color combo and details held it back? As for the SDP Eliminator, it was restored back in 1985 or so, and it's been driven and used since then. I heard that it was very tired looking. Fun...

Re: YouTube

"It's basically a mustang, so you can get parts for it no problem!" Y'know, I hear this all the time, and while it's not really the scope of this discussion, I have been meaning to post and ask the forum for input on a list of components that ARE actually compatible with a same-model-year Mustang. I...

Don't have a VIN for this one yet. Looks pretty sharp though. No reserve at a small auction venue, might sell for reasonable money! '70 w/ Boss 302, 4-speed. Competition Orange, Black Standard Interior. No docs. GAA Classic Cars auction, Mar 2019, Lot# ST0119 https://www.gaaclassiccars.com/vehicles/...

So how long has it been since Richard lost track of it?
I think a year or two.

The new owner is someone we all know. I'm sure he'll take good care of it :-)

Re: Eliminators on the Market (January 2019)

Here is another one that popped up, is this a 1969 factory color? https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/mercury/cougar/2217473.html Fellahs, that one is Competition Blue. It is not a '69 factory color, although I imagine you could have special ordered it if you had the right paint code...
