That is not to say that it may not exist at some point in the future as some of the data is out there at the state level. As to your particular car have you entered it into the CCOA VIN Decoder and in the comment ...

Re: 1970 and 1971 Cougar 4spd shift boot repros.

Thanks for the update Don! That upgrade in quality is MUCH needed!

Re: 1968 Standard at Dallas Mecum

Salt & Pepper’s Excellent Adventure (long)

As this was the 50th anniversary year for the Mercury Cougar, and not knowing what the future holds for any of us, I decided that I would attempt to attend all of the CCOA shows that would be in the United States. My desire was to bring two cars to each of the 5 shows. That was not realized as I was...
