XR7-G for sales on craigslist

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 running cat valve covers were standard equipment on X code engines. That means it also needs the special XR7-G air cleaner snout. It does not look like a bad price considering he has probably spent $15K on body repairs already. The hard stuff has been done. Lots of assembly needed, not a project for the inexperienced.
