This 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator tribute has a bright and bold sharpness that instantly grabs you. And since this V8 coupe is also built to be a solid driver, it's easy to take this one out and get all attention on you.
We all love a classic Mercury for their upscale nature, but this one reminds us there can be attitude in there, too. The Competition Orange is a fresh presentation of a professional application, and that always makes something that's bold even bolder. Its vibrant appearance gets turned up a notch even more thanks to the nicely contrasting Eliminator side stripes. The tapered lines have a sporty look that go with other dark performance pieces like the hood scoop and full-width rear spoiler. Even the details get a nice upgrade. For example, those look like classic Mag 500 wheels, but they are actually modern American Racing 15-inch alloys. And we're not sure if Mercury could ever have gotten the hidden headlight front end looking so sharply aligned from the factory. As you look over the whole car you really see quality. That's why the bumpers shine like mirrors as they hug the form, and the body panels are so well done that it looks like and unbroken sweeping crease from the front fender to the rear wheel opening.
All the black accents of the exterior get you ready for the full black interior. There is a feeling of premium the moment you sit in the driver's seat. The factory built these comfortable buckets with headrests. A center console, three-spoke steering wheel, round gauges, and all that wood trim - it's an ideal blend of luxury and performance. Besides just the great presentation, this one has the features for a comfortable cruiser, including provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing) and a Retrosound AM/FM digital tuner for upgraded driving music.
Under the hood is the proper power of a 351 cubic-inch V8. The presentation is quite tidy and stock, so it's easy to see the big blue air cleaner sitting on top of the big blue block. They did also add the right upgrades, like an aluminum radiator to help keep this one running cool. There's also a newer dual exhaust that give this one a truly hot rumble. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes with front discs, and excellent tread on the wide BF Goodrich T/A tires, and you've got a total package that's easy to enjoy.
The sharp and speedy looks meet a quality driver experience...that's exactly what a performance Mercury was all about, and so this tribute really get it right. Call today!!!
