Description

1968 Cougar, numbers matching, 302 four valve four barrel carb, automatic, air, power steering, power front disc brakes, stainless dual performance exhaust,like new interior including XR7 opera lights, working original am/fm radio.
I am the third owner of the car. It was purchased new in California in late 1968. Within a year the original owner installed the American Racing wheels that are still on the car and have been for 45 years. He had the car for most of its life. The next owner rarely drove the car but made good investments into its upkeep including new paint and some interior work.
I have owned the car for a couple of years. All of the projects are now complete. The car is ready for the next owner to enjoy. Here is a breakdown of work completed and the condition of the car.
The car is rust free. The only issue was the front passenger floor. A small hole in the firewall allowed water to accumulate under the carpet. When the carpet was replaced the issue was discovered and repaired. There is no bondo on the car. The paint is very good and was made better. A professional shop repainted the threshold areas, inside of the doors, underside of hood and trunk. Dash was also repainted. Rear bumper was rechromed. Passenger side mirror installed and opera ligts installed.
Dynamat sound deadening was installed on floor, in trunk and inside doors. New carpet installed. New speakers and wire installed. The original AM/FM radio works great. A previous owner installed speakers in the door panels. While I replaced them, I never would have cut the panel for speakers. I acquired another set of matching door panels which you can swap out if you choose. New trunk mat, tire cover, board inserts and tool bag in the trunk along with original jack.
The air conditioning system was completely replumbed and converted to modern materials. It works perfectly. Front end is new, oil pan is too. Front disk brakes and rear drums are new. Battery, plugs, ignition wires, cap etc all recently replaced. A new Holly carb was installed and performance has never been better. The original carb comes with the car. The car starts immediately and runs beautifully. It needs nothing.
I welcome your questions.
