XR7G 4 Speed Pictures of Shifter

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

Those knobs were sold in the checkout line at auto part stores in the 1970's. They had matching Cougar key fobs and other items too.

Thanks for the pictures Bill. I have a vintage Amco Cougar shifter ball that I’m planning to use. The only issue is that it’s a fine thread and my T5 is a course thread.
I do like the walnut knob so I may turn one on my lathe and make my own Cougar insert later in my project.
