1979 Mercury Cougar XR-7 Description:

This 1979 Cougar XR-7 is in great shape. The 351 (5.8L) V8 purrs like a kitten and has plenty of get up and go. The exterior landau vinyl top and matching padded "Continental" trunk lid show very little to no wear. The two-tone interior is in excellent shape, however, the door pull handles need to be replaced. The color keyed styled road wheels look just like they did from the factory in 1979. The black paint is still very shiny; however, it has a number of nicks and scratches. Most won'tshow up in photos; you see them in person, but one photo is attached of the left rear quarter panel. Once it gets a good repaint, it will look like 2 million dollars instead of its current one million.There are a few small dents on the wheel well chrome moldings. A big plus is this car is rust free, which is always good news! Please contact me if you are interested in this stylish, eye-catching cat.
