1978 Mercury Cougar Description:

Vehicle Original VIN : 8H91H521602
This 1978 Mercury Cougar XR7 represents a very cool vintage package. It has a true classic vibe with two-tone paint, wide whitewalls, a plush interior, and V8 power. But there are also some cool updates - like the Bluetooth radio - to tell you that this vintage Cougar is ready to continue cruising in modern times.
This is something quite unique and fun. The trim tag tells us this was born a light blue coupe, but the color it wears today is more like a tropical ocean hue. Plus, a premium Mercury like this comes with full-length trim, and so this takes full advantage of that by using it as a dividing line for a two-tone with a deep/dark blue on the bottom. It's the kind of classic style that you'd probably see on the ultra-custom Mercury lead sleds of a few decades prior, and so you just know this one loves to cruise. In fact, they even added real wire wheels and proper classic whitewalls. It makes for an impressive style, but the really impressive part is how it's still a true driver. So nothing here is too overly done. It's just a clean-looking car with sensible modifications like tinted windows and polished dual exhaust tips. So it rides nice and feels like a normal classic American out on the streets.
The sea of blue continues inside. The condition of the seats, door panels, dash, carpeting, and all the other fundamentals have a quality and classic presentation so that hopping in feels like a time capsule. Even the wood-like trim is looking quite nice. These were intermediate-sized in the 1970s, but today that means big room for comfort. The front has a fold-down armrest for individual space, and the rear has plenty of legroom. And while this one is great to share with family and friends, it's also centered around the driver. You get a grippy dual-spoke steering wheel, and the five-round gauge cluster has a sporty look. It feels luxurious with factory features within an easy read like provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing) and power windows. Plus, while the classic radio is still on display, under the dash is a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth for the best in modern driving music.
The highly authentic engine bay is always nice to see in a car of this era. After all, a Ford/Mercury motor like the 351 Windsor V8 is a hardy powerhouse that loves to run for generations. In fact, with the way this one runs strong, and there are details like the newer aluminum radiator, you get a true cruiser feeling in the classic. So you'll love taking it out on the road. After all, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front all make this Mercury a terrific choice for a vintage boulevard king.
Complete with the original warranty card, this XR7 coupe gives you a feeling of both premium and distinct for an affordable price. So don't miss this true cruiser coupe. Call today!!!
