Re: 20 Years in the making... My Cougar Story

Welcome aboard. My first suggestion would be that you add a location to your profile. You may find that you are close to another member or a local Cougar club group. If the headlight vacuum lines are not attached to the headlight switch you will hear the vacuum leaking under the dash when the car is...

Re: Mystery electrical box on drivers side firewall 1969

Try buying the Eminger report from Marti. That may shed some light on the original options for you. And yes, the intermittent wiper set up is a plug and play replacement for the standard 2 speed wipers.

Any comments of an 'S' code for under 10 grand?
You will need to include more information before anyone can really say much about the price. Is it a standard or XR-7? Automatic? 3 speed? 4 speed? Other options? Running? Driving?

Re: Engine bay detailing what paint do I need

I have a shelf full of power brake boosters here and they all appear to me to be black.

Re: 69 XR7 Sail Panel installation II

You would not have to remove the rear window however if you do leave it in place you will need to be sure that the rear edge of the new sail panel gets tucked in under the rear window weatherstrip. You will also need to remove the roofrail windlace from at least the rear vertical edge as the front e...

Re: New purchase of '68 Cougar

Rosie, If you go to www.cougarclub.org you can submit your VIN and the rest of the door data plate information. In addition you can add you actual name and address. Also there should be 2 more codes after the DSO code. They would be for the rear axle and the transmission. The rear axle will be a sin...

Re: 68 Cougar Front Grill Removal or Not When Painting the Whole Vehicle

How would you paint the stone panel and the center grille with the headlight assemblies still in place? That would be a real PITA, especially trying to mask them off. It is far easier and quicker to remove them. Start at the bottom by first removing the valance panel. Next remove the bumper leaving ...

Re: 69 Eliminator Yellow

The 1969 Eliminator yellow is called Bright Yellow and is code #9. The 1970 Eliminator yellow is called Competition Yellow and is code #D. You would need to check with a local automotive paint supplier or a local body shop to see about having a sample mixed.

Re: 1969 Wheel Questions

Magnum 500 wheels were not available on a Cougar from the factory. For 1969 you could get a regular stamped steel painted wheel with various styles of hubcaps. There was also the factory styled steel wheel, a 5 spoke painted wheel in the style of a Cragar SS wheel. The Eliminators received the paint...

Re: "The Parts Car"

Can any one tell me how to sell a junk car and get rid of junk car ? The correct legal way will vary from state to state. You should contact your local authorities to find the correct answer for your location. Here in PA we are a title state so to legally send a vehicle to a salvage yard or a scrap...
