Sadly the time has come for my cougar. I have to suck it up and part it out and junk it. Too much rot, too many required repairs, too much body damage from serious jerks who like to do hit and runs. It's time.
So, I'm trying to gauge interest in the part out for my Alpine Green 96 Cougar.
roughly 135K on it give or take. Engine runs well, typical rusty crusty New England block though so you may not be interested in it. Trans is iffy, if you are seriously interested and are local you can pick it up and pay me a few hours labor to pull it.
Body is pretty well beat, RH door and trunklid are nice, everything else has it's flaws. Cladding trim is junk, hood and fenders have been hit as mentioned, bumpers are both cracked (again people suck) and the trunk carpet is junk.
The grey leather interior is really nice, drivers seat is the worst with only one tear and a few cracks in the leather. Needs to be cleaned but it's all there. It has a hacked to fit '97 console top in it with an LED mounted in a burn hole for cosmetics
. Carpet has a hole worn in it where the loud pedal is so that probably isn't somethin to go for. Dash surrounds are driver quality.
I have set of Monroe EZShocks in the front with a few thousand miles on them and a set of gabriel rear shocks new in an open box. If you want the fronts, you'll have to wait until I can pull them at my shop in a few months.
Car has the K&N filter with the brackets and such, filter could use a cleaning but it's in great shape. Tailights and the rear panel all have cracks, not really worth too much to anyone who isn't desperate.
I think that is as honest of a representation for the car I can give, if anyone is interested in anything or wants pictures and a shipping quote let me know and make an offer on the part you want.
Sad to see the car go, but they can't all live forever!
Thanks for your time guys!
My cougar is finally getting some much needed love after my caprice got into a horrible accident
So I made her semi-presentable and am looking forward to getting to know her better through this wonderful forum!
