New '68 Cougar owner in PA

Post by mfc133 » 23 Jun 2017, 09:54

Hi all,

Just picked up my '68 last weekend. I went the opposite direction most people go and sold a newer car (2013 Mustang GT) to buy older. Always wanted a classic Cougar and when the opportunity to buy this one came up I had to jump on it. It's a base 302-4V automatic w/factory air that's been repainted to the original Dark Aqua color. Power steering, manual drums, fixed column, center console.

Looking forward to working on it, I already have a couple orders in with WCCC! I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you guys in the coming months as I get this thing into shape.

Welcome to the forum! We are glad that you chose a cougar. I think that was a smart move to trade up to your cougar. The car looks really nice, it looks like it is a well preserved cat that has been well taken care of over the years. I know that you will enjoy it. Keep us posted on what you're doing with it.

Thanks! Definitely have lots of plans, stay tuned for a thread in the project forum. After I go over the car I'm thinking power disc conversion, dash/interior work and eventually new wheels/tires. Some day I'd like to get the factory air working too.

Thats a clean car for sure. Wise investment is the cougar will climb in value over the 2013 mustang dropping in value

She doesnt appear to need much work!
