Just brought her home today!

Post by JWScarab » 21 Jan 2017, 18:48

Hi guys! I'm a new Cougar owner and wanted to say hi! I've had Mustangs my whole life but thought a change of scenery would be cool! I've always loved the Cougars. I just brought this home today!

Thx car is a base I think (so much to learn) and originally green. It's an A code 289 4v, automatic,original AM/FM radio, tilt steering wheel, power steering, power brakes, disc brakes, air conditioning, tinted windows, black interior, console.

I need to order a marti report first thing.

Welcome! Your car is pretty cool looking. It's also a very nicely optioned standard Cougar. Good luck with finishing it up. A set of factory styled steel wheels will really make that car pop.

Welcome, congratulations, and nice find. You have come to the right place for advice, and help with this car. Being relatively new to Cougar myself, I can tell you that the collective knowledge, and willingness of those more experienced to share it, has helped me with a couple of projects on mine, so don't be afraid to ask questions. these guys can and will help.

You'll have to attend the 50th anniversary in Dearborn and join our CATS Classic Cougar club. http://www.catsccc.com/
Even if you don't have it road worthy you can always trailer it as a project or attend Cougar less. People like seeing Cougars in different states of completion.

That was a great deal. Someone posted a link to the listing in FL the other day. Looks like you paid for the paint and body work and got the car for free. It has pretty much every important option a 67 std could have, best CL deal I have seen in some time, congrats!

BTW, what wheels are you going with? I think these would look good...
