I found this one on our local Craigs list. Might be a good deal at 10K less.

No VIN/Marti verification, no engine, transmission? Then $12K for paint & body work.
Not a lot to work with.

Looks like it may have had front end damage in the past. Worth investigating, could be a 4 speed GT.

Unless I missed it, the seller doesn’t say if the engine and transmission are included in the sale.

Right side scoop has the witness line that makes it a candidate as original. Both hood receptacles are shown. This car has promise but needs to be seen in person.

Can somebody still get the perches for the Lucas Fog lights and anything else needed to complete the restoration. I know Bob Teets used to sell them.

Thanks, Wallace

My 1968 Cougar XR7 came with a J code 3 speed. It now has a T5 5 speed.

Rough GT/CS

I inspected the car myself today. Needs new radiator support and lower front crossmember from front end damages as well as passenger lower quarter, grill, Lucas lights, rust repair front lower doors and complete paint. Interior needs to be completely redone. Quite the project. Motor is dated 8B12 for May car. Trans is 4 speed and date incorrect. He may have 3 speed close in dates as car was originally a 3 speed. Has disc brakes from donor car in trunk and lower console in poor shape. Rear fiberglass taillight panel cracked from rear hit.
Unrealistic price IMHO. If you need any other info let me know.
Thanks Wally
