I know not a cougar but a sister car, nice looking original survivor

Not exactly a "pony car" but nice nonetheless. It will take a garage space 20% larger than a '67 - 68 Cougar. Can't say it is a bad deal at the estimated price. I like it!

Rare Merc - I can't even remember that last time I saw one actually in person!

Unfortunately I saw this 1970 Montego first... What was I thinking!

Too bad its not a 72 and a 429 with the Cyclone ram air option. I'd be in the front row!

Thank goodness... I would have had some explaining to do! Talk about unique!

I haven't seen one in person probably in 20+ years. If it were a Q code i'd be more interested, if it were an N code i'd probably be making plane reservations and hitting the US Nationals while I was in the area.

72 Q code for sale in NY. It might still be in Hemming's.
