Produced for just three years, the 1971-1973 generation of the Mercury Cougar would be the last to be based on the Ford Mustang platform. And with a lot less Cougars made compared to Mustangs, these sharp Mercurys are a rare sight, especially in convertible form. Here we have one of these rare cats, a 1973 Cougar convertible that has been beautifully restored. Starting with a very solid car, the former owner refurbished the Cougar, making a few tasteful upgrades along the way. Refinished in Raven Black, the Cougar’s body shows good panel fit and even gaps while all the chrome and stainless-steel trim shows very well. The brand new power-operated white convertible top, with its glass not plastic rear window, looks great against the black paint while a set of American Racing five-spoke wheels wearing Cooper Cobra white letter radials finish off this cat’s classy stance. Inside, the dash, seats and carpet are all in fantastic condition with the only notable flaw being on the driver's door panel. A custom 3-spoke, wood-rimmed steering wheel and an AM/FM/Cassette stereo as well as a concealed cup holder (within the factory console) highlight the worthwhile upgrades to the interior. Note that this Cougar has the optional factory A/C -- great for those hot summer days when it’s just too hot to drop the top. Under the hood there’s the factory 351 2-barrel “Cleveland” V8 which moves the Cougar out with plenty of gusto. The power goes to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic and of course the car has power steering and power front disc brakes. More a luxury cruiser than hard-edged muscle car, this Cougar is ready to take you on those weekend road trips in comfort and style. With its combination of condition, performance, head-turning looks and affordability, this captivating Cougar convertible likely won’t be here long.
