Description

So you want a drop-top classic, but you also want something rare and luxurious? This 1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 convertible gives you all of this with V8 power, factory-correct colors, and a value price. The Cougar was built to be a Mustang in a dinner jacket, and so you get the right proportions with an extra hint of premium. You especially see the upper-class nature in the brightwork - from the waterfall grille to the stylized bumper/taillight combo. Even the mag wheels have a little extra flair with the spinner trim added. Overall, this drop-top keeps a very classic look, but you can also tell it has received the right care along the way. The factory-correct Bright Red was given a respray about halfway through life, and so it retains a good gloss in the sunshine. And the panels line up nicely so that you get a sporty profile and the large doors still close with confidence. That's the exact kind of premium you want from a classic Mercury. The black convertible roof looks quite handsome against the red paint, but for true distinction, all you have to do is power it down. The factory-correct white interior really gives this a premium look and the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. Plus, they made the right investments in this upper-level XR7 trim to keep this looking and feeling upper-class. For example, it keeps the look of the classic upholstery, but you recognize the Cougar logo embossed in the seatback so much better now that this has a custom red accenting. And in-between the high-back bucket seats is an upgraded armrest center console with cup holders. Those who have driven Mustangs from this era will find something familiar about the layout of this Cougar, except there's an added premium feeling. For example, you still have the same sporty sloping center console and dashboard setup, but now there's more wood trim and a substantially larger gauge package also with a tachometer. And this really feels like a well-preserved layout - right down to the working dash light. It even still has provisions for air conditioning (it runs R134a refrigerant, but it will need hooking up and servicing.) Open the hood and you'll see Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune as the dual exhaust feeds into newer Flowmaster mufflers. And the V8 is not just there for all-out power, but also it's part of a confident driving package. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs, and this is the convertible that's easy for any day of the week. This is a cool XR7 drop-top that was made to be enjoyed. So if you want a significant Mercury that still knows how to have a premium presentation, call today!
