1979 Cougar XR-7
(Last Year for the BIG Cougar)
1 of 1374 built with Light Jade Paint and Dark Jade Interior

****TURN KEY, DAILY DRIVER****

Bought new in Michigan, but spent most of its life in Texas (VERY LITTLE SURFACE RUST)
Came back to Michigan in 2010 but was in storage from then on.
Had 1 repaint in the late 1980's with the original color but now the paint is alittle dull from Texas sun (nice light patina look) but could be wheeled out.
113,000 miles.
Interior is near perfect, dash pad has a slight warp from Texas heat, but not cracked.
Vinyl top is perfect.
Runs and drives like a new car, and dual exhaust sounds GREAT!
Cruise control works.
Factory AM/FM Radio works.
Rear window defroster works.
Power drivers seat works.
Heater works.
A/C compressor needs to be put back on and charged (parts included)

Clear Michigan title in my name.

P.S......2021 Memorial Day Weekend the Cougar ran 17.90's in the 1/4 mile and on Saturday won the street class (12.00 and slower) at Mid Michigan Motorplex (see winners pic) and got runner up on Monday. (40 car field, Slowest car at the track)
Very road worthy, drove 2 hours to the track, raced for 3 days, sleeped in the car all weekend and drove 2 hours home.
