Debuting in 1967 as a still sporty but more upscale cousin to the Ford Mustang, the Mercury Cougar shared the Mustang's many powertrain options and had fancier styling inside and out. The Cougar also had a measure of exclusivity as, unlike the Mustang, it wasn’t something you’d see nearly every time you rolled up to an intersection. Offered here is a 1973 Cougar which is notable for a few key reasons. The 1973 model year would be the last for which the Cougar shared its platform with the Mustang; after that it veered off into a personal luxury car direction. And this particular example boasts just 26,900 original miles along with all its original body panels, paint and interior. A true time capsule that must be seen and driven. This Cougar’s body has even gaps and straight panels while the original Bright Blue paint gleams. The chrome and stainless-steel trim have a brilliant shine as well and the underside is rock solid, testament to the excellent care the car has received from day one. A set of 15-inch American Racing chrome wheels fitted with BF Goodrich Radial T/As provide the perfect accent to this stylish coupe. That sharp body is complemented by a matching Medium Blue interior. Everything from the headliner to the dash and door panels, to the upholstery and down to the carpet is in incredible original condition. Bucket seats and a mini console-mounted transmission gear selector add a sporty vibe, while a Pioneer audio system with satellite radio capability adds the tunes. Under the Cougar’s long hood is a 351 cubic-inch, 2-barrel V8 that send its power to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission. The 351 quickly fires up, runs smoothly and sounds great thanks to a set of headers and dual exhaust. Of course there are power steering and power front disc brakes and the Mercury is a pleasure to drive, whether just around town on your way to a Cars and Coffee or on a long weekend road trip.
