Re: After searching for 15 years for my childhood '69 Cougar, I'm this close to buying - looking for assistance in prici

Update: The guy read and responded to my inquiry for pictures and other detailed information, but has yet to deliver. He said he'd get with me two weekends ago and still nothing. I scoured through my archive of pictures and have found only ONE picture of the engine bay, and I can't really tell. Sure...

Re: After searching for 15 years for my childhood '69 Cougar, I'm this close to buying - looking for assistance in prici

Crazy informative post, thank you! Regarding the spacing of the rear spoiler, that's wild. So that would mean it was installed after the fact? I used all morning at work to be able to spot the difference in a Windsor vs. Cleveland, as well as spotting a 428, just in case. You never know. Yes, not a...

Cool car, although as you've discovered, its not an Eliminator. Besides the "H" in the VIN, a few other things give it away: The chrome fenderwell moldings, the spacing of the rear spoiler pedestals, and the low-back bucket seat. Value is very hard to pin down based on all the unknowns at this poin...

If the door data plate shown is for the car you are thinking about buying it is a fairly base standard car, a factor that brings its value down. The bigger questions are what other factory options did the car have? And what condition is the car currently in? Those are bigger factors in its value to...

The "H" in the VIN indicates it was originally a 351 2V
Correct, according to the VIN and door tag, it is a 351-2v car with an FMX.

Re: Trying to find my old '69 Cougar

Have you checked with Phil Parcells to see if the car is registered with the CCOA National database? That should be the first step anyone makes when trying to find a specific Cougar. Randy, I have contacted Phil and there's no record of the car from my ownership or whomever the new owner is. As sta...
