Testing the waters, thinking about selling the G

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.

Testing the waters, thinking about selling the G

#1

Post by Rarecat »

I'm about 60/40 sell/don't sell with my G. I'd prefer to keep it in the community and give a fellow enthusiast a good deal then go through the hassles of eBay or Bring a trailer. Having said that, how does the market look for a driver quality G these days? Here is a picture of my triple black car done at the NPD photo shoot for the Cougar Catalog cover.....

I’m not in the market for it but curious if it’s originally a triple black car, beautiful.

Originally built with a dark green interior and 2 bbl F code engine. Now black leather interior and a holley 4 bbl plus some other extras not in the original build (tilt away & rear window defogger). I call it driver quality because it is not "correct" and has an older repaint that probably needs to be redone in the future. Looks great from 10 feet away but when you get closer the paint flaws show.

Scott, taking a break from the classics. Been working on them since high school in the 80's and just don't enjoy turning wrenches like I used to do. When you don't enjoy what used to be fun it's time for a change.

Yeah, I can see that. A reason so many classic car people buy newer Mustangs, and such.
