My deceased Grandmother's Black Beauty 1978 XR7 Cougar. Black exterior, red pinstripe & leather landau, maroon interior. 70,000 original miles literally driven by a 4'9" woman. Car has 1 small hole in drivers side carpet where Grandma's high heel would pivot in and out of car. Paint is passable but could use a new coat. I know a guy willing to do acrylic paint for about $1,200. Has minor rust spots on hood and top of cabin, no dents.
This car was professionally appraised at the value of $4000.
This sweet ride comes equipped with a working 8-track tape deck, remote mirrors, cruise control (over 35 mph), a movable steering wheel (up and down), and an AM/FM Radio.
Leather seats in excellent shape, no cracks. AC needs freon. Windows & seats work, however a gear has slipped on the locking mechanism. Tires replaced at 67,000 miles. Interior in great shape, in need of a few seals and gaskets for windows but is passable as it sits now.
My Grandmother had the oil changed exactly every 5,000 miles +/- 100 mi. I had the oil changed last at 67,000 miles. This car rides great, feels like a giant floating couch, has a trunk that could hold the pacific ocean. It's pretty huge. Comes with a free spare tire, old school jack, a boot for that jack, chains for wintery weather, and a cover for the car.
This car is a great project for a person who loves old school good lookin' cars.
