G on ebay

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.

Maybe Royce will give us the story on this car. Looks nice from what I can see. And seems pretty reasonable.

It is a very good car, numbers matching, with the original Rader wheels and a documented power rear antenna installation. Mostly original paint and interior. A great driver. What's not to like at that price?

Could be a cool car based on Royce's description but that advertisement is just plain horrible marketing. If the owner would simply try a little harder and give a detailed description along with pictures of all parts of the car, he might just be able to get the price he's looking for.
