1 of 35 Built w/ Cobra Jet V-8 & 4-Speed Top Loader
The current owner of this 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 Hardtop acquired it back in 2015 and he informs us that it originally sold in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as one of 35 total examples built with the legendary 428 Cobra Jet engine and the Top-Loader manual transmission. This classic underwent a painstaking, no-expense-spared multiyear restoration effort as well, which transformed the body, trim and interior back to new condition while completely overhauling the factory correct drivetrain. The power front disc brakes have been upgraded to Wilwood disc brakes on all four corners and you’ll also find major upgrades to the suspension, drivetrain and accessories.
The performance of this 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 is absolutely outstanding and it is believed to be one of the few remaining examples worldwide with these desirable specifications.
Additionally, this 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 Hardtop is “new again” for all intents and purposes. It presents flawless body lines and deep, rich brown exterior paint in the correct factory color code. The entire interior has also been restored or replaced to better than new condition throughout and this classic muscle car would be equally at home on the open road or in a museum exhibition. The build quality is truly second to none and the price point is likely conservative on this classic- it must be seen in person to fully appreciate.
A Spectacular Like-New Investment-Grade Classic
Overall, this 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 2 Door Hardtop is one of the rarest and most desirable original classics that you’ll view this year and it has extensive documentation showing the initial build, the restoration and all the card it’s received throughout the years.
