How does the car drive? (mechanical aspects):
The car starts up every time and reliably gets you from point A to point B. The engine sounds fantastic with the upgraded mufflers and it also includes a set of headers as well for the next owner to install. The transmission shifts through all the gears, and there is a slight kick from 1st to 2nd gear, otherwise, it goes through all the gears normally and doesn't slip. The suspension is nice and soft which makes for a comfortable ride and the steering is light and easy to steer. The car does not overheat and can easily be used as a daily driver!

 

Ownership lifestyle, how do you feel owning and driving the car?:
Owning and driving this car around is definitely a fun lifestyle as it transports you back to the 60's and gets looks everywhere it goes. We've had a few people talk to us already about the car and reminisce about their own Cougar they used to have so there is a great following and a lot of love for this car and it really shows! The power is great and it makes you want to step on it just to hear that glorious sound of the V8. 

Why are you selling the car?

The car is in all original condition from the exterior to the interior which is a huge plus, and can be used as is with the patina as a fun daily driver or taken the time to restore completely as it has a very solid body and chassis. Most of the electrical components inside do not work like the stereo, horn, and some gauges, however, all safety components like headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals are in working order. The car has a very nice loud growl to it and sounds like a true classic American Muscle car. It’s got tons of power and even chirps the tires from first to second! When it comes to the steering its very light as all classic cars and responsive, and tracks pretty straights. The brakes have had a new booster installed and the master cylinder rebuilt. Although it gets a little stiff towards the end of the pedal travel, it holds perfectly fine and is reliable. We’ve spent over 2 hours driving this car through all sorts of conditions like rough LA traffic to open twisty roads and this Cougar continues to put a smile on our face and passes each obstacle with flying colors!
