XR7-G's for sale September 14, 2019

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.

XR7-G's for sale September 14, 2019

Post by Royce »

I am taking a cue from the Eliminators for sale postings on this site in order that buyers might be able to see what's available, and sellers will have a better view of the competition.


J code / Sunroof:


This one is Saxony / black / black with sunroof. A nice restoration, well optioned too.

Now we have an X code XR7-G.


Augusta Green / No sunroof:
Original Rader wheels . Car is in registry. Call for details. Text 570-279-0121 for video ! Has "Born With" original motor , trans and original interior.
Come see it !

IS what it is , As is where is , no warrantee's $39,900
Info at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-Mercury-C ... 3781255641

Also a nice S code XR7-G:
The car is very solid and has very minimal rust. One shock tower had a spot of rust where it is spot welded to the rear inner fender, and I have repaired that. I also did a pretty decent refresh to the engine bay while the motor was out for a refresh. It has a warm cam, but nothing that can't be changed back to stock. It comes with a 3.25 Detroit TrueTrac differential, but also included is the original 2.75 open center section.

Almost all of the G parts are there. Royce Peterson viewed the car and told me the third horn is not original. The fog lights are right, the sunroof works, the wood shifter is there and in good condition.

At least your job will be easier than Mikes's! All three cars seem to be solid and good values.

Hemisfair G

#5

Post by tattarat »

The Hemisfair G is also still for sale. Same price as was a while back:
$18K for the car
$22K w/ the radar wheels and OEM FR-70 tires
Unfortunately Photobucket bit the bucket so the photos are no longer on line.
I have detailed photos of the car and am looking for a new place to post them.
I thought I had put some on Google Images, but cannot find them or a link now... so PM me
This is the newest photo from 2017. Car has always been garaged during the time I have had it.

Found the link. You will have to have a google account to access the pictures.

^^^ That would be an absolutely gorgeous G when done - beside the fact that it is unique among XR7-Gs.

Good luck with the sale Tony!
