XR7-G Salvage up for Auction

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.

The car doesn't have a title and there aren't any photos but I wanted to pass along anyway.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

How do you know someone is a pilot? Easy! They'll tell you!

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

The photo's of it are in a different thread. It will be interesting to see how much a car that really isn't even hardly a car any longer gets sold for.

"I think I can fix it."

Seriously, it seems only the passenger door and possibly the driver's side sill plate is all that has survived the wrath of it's hard life.
