1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible Restoration Mobile Alabama

1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible

The 1969 Mercury Cougar is an elite production model from the muscle car era. The striking body line from the front fender to the rear fender and the hidden headlights puts the body style into the Lincoln class – much more sophisticated than Mustangs of the same era. This car is nothing less than sporting elegance with its sequential taillights and a minimum of chrome trim.

The car is powered by a 351 cubic-inch V8 which is perfect for this car. It has big block performance without big block weight and size. Topped off with a 4 barrel carburetor and finished with dual exhaust the Cougar is pure muscle car.

Only 4,024 convertibles were produced in 1969 making this car one of the most rare. This auto once restored will bring $27,000 plus. Our restoration started with replacing a severely rusted floor plan.

The third year of production, 1969 was the third year for the Mercury Cougar and the first year that a convertible was produced. These soft tops proved quite popular and today are considered among the most desirable of the 1967 to 1970 autos.

This restoration project has the 351 cubic inch V8 with a four-barrel is under the hood.
