Details

This one-family-owned car is among the rarest of the rare, one of three 1968 Cougar XR-7 GT-Es produced with a factory equipped 428 Cobra Jet Ram Air engine and 4-speed manual transmission. This unmolested survivor has been painstakingly maintained, receiving repairs as necessary with originality, functionality, and safety being the highest priorities. Original equipment has been lovingly preserved where replacement was required and a large number of additional original equipment parts and components accompany the sale of the car. Documentation includes factory build sheets, owner’s card, sales documents, manuals, magazines, Cougar Club of America Registry and more. Of the three cars built to these specifications, only two have been documented. With only 54,517 miles on the odometer, this rare car is a time-capsule awaiting its next steward.
