Great site - a wealth of information for everyone for the novice to the expert in all things Cougar ! Here's my dilemma : I had ordered a complete one car take-off Speed Control System for my 1969 Cougar XR-7 ( a San Jose "S" model ) from Florida. Wouldn't you know it, the tracked and insured box was stolen on the day it was scheduled for delivery to me. I'm devastated. Does anyone reading this, or visiting this site have access to another complete system, already removed / stored or on a donor/parts car ? I received the insurance pay-out for the loss, and I really would like to find another system. I will pay the current market price for such a rare item ( 1500 - 2000 dollars ). Any help or leads would greatly be appreciated !
Regards to all who wish to preserve the Cat in its special place in late 60's muscle cars !

Love your site, I use it regularly. Ive got a question you might be able to answer. I have a 69 XR7 "s" code car that hase an oval plate above the VIN plate with the number 9 and 751 underneath it. Ive had several people tell me its "special" but I can find anything about it. Any help would be great. I have it on Ebay and now Im wondering if Im short changing myself.

Hello Patrick,

Thank you, I appreciate your interest in the site. It looks like a spacial car! Unfortunately I can't find information too. I have seen it only on rocky mountain cars. But you can order a sheet at www.martiauto.com. The guys over there can tell you everything about your car. I think you can better wait to sell it, maby you have the holy grail ;-)

Let me know if you ask martiauto please, i'd like to know too what a special car it is!

Good Luck

The last 2 pictures in the Schartman drag racing section are of my tribute car. It is not the original and intentionally has 1970 style rear marker lights to distinguish it. You can see more pictures of it with the actual Dyno Don Boss Cougar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHVlyGjatSY

Great website. I will keep it in my favorites. I have a 69 Cougar XR7. Bought it in 1977. I'm second owner. I've had it since I was 17. I completed it in 1985. I'm now 55. Now its time for a major face lift and makeover. Stay tuned.

I have compleated 1968 a ground up resot/mod. I replaced the brakes with a kit from stainles steel break sysstems. Not so great a kit as it has never performed well despite many efforts to improve it. I installed a stock 302 crate moter with a performer intake manifold/650 4 barrel carb and ford cast iron performance exhust manifolds. I rebuilt the auto trani and diff to stock and they work well but I have always wanted better performance from the power trane. I rebuilt the front suspension to stock except for stiffer springs and stiffer shocks. I bought 17 inch wheels. I forget the width but the are wider than stock. the look great but the car handles poorley and wanders about. I have had it allinged a number of times but all the shops tell me that it is in allingment. I am considering replacing the original front suspension with a spring over aftermarket kit. Do you have any suggestions for suspenion kit companies and would you recamend going to a larger engine or rebuilding the current 302 to increase its power. I have a background of shifter cart and motercycle racing and would like to auto cross or run the Cougar in events at thunder hill raceway while keeping it street leagle. Thanks for any advice...
