SWMBO called this am and saw a cougar in a guys yard for sale, so I buzzed up at lunch to check it out. Its a dark green 67, 289/c4, steel magnums and white interior. Although its currently licensed, and could be a driver, Im sure rust is very bad - there was a 10" hole in front of the right rear qtr. Guy was askin 2200 obo.. Is there any market for parts, or would some of the parts be valuable to stang people? How about getting parts to restore it (would be a project Im sure)? I did a search for "cougar forum" and "Cougar value" but didnt get any matches. Its a pretty cool lookin car, except for the cancer....

They always reminded me of Buicks for some reason.

I doubt the parts are as cheap as Mustangs. Be careful.

Restored it may bring $6-8K but it would take more than that to restore it. Unless it is a GT (big block) or a Dan Gurney special it's not worth buying with an eye to fixing or parting, just driving as-is.

I watch Cougar prices on eHay and it is very rare that any Cougar gets bid over $5000. Those that make it that high are usually verts or Eliminators or have had $20,000 pumped into them. IMO the car you describe is worth whatever the drive train is worth.

Thanks for the advice guys. Under this paint this one probably has some real horror stories (also an indicator is the handful of bolts, nuts, etc on the floor in the back) so with no real part or restore value, Ill let some other sucker buy it...

Now, $2200 for a 67 Cougar is not a terrible price. I don't feel like whoever buys it will be "a sucker". Unless of course the body has been reconstructed with plywood and bondo.

The Cougar was the luxury model Mustang. The frame, inner sheet metal, and drivetrain will be the same as a Mustang and thus easily available. The interior, body panels, and exterior chrome will be different and thus more expensive.

The 67 was the first year of the Cougar and thus more sought after than the 68 models. Personlly I would take a 67 Cougar long before a 65/66/67 Mustang coupe.

But for $2200, the Cougar should be drivable, but in need of restoration. If you were looking for something to make some $$$ on, this is not the car.

Oh yeah, $2200 obo usually means the seller will except around $1800 for it. Lets assume its a rust bucket. But the interior has some goodies in it. Maybe it has a tilt steering column, am/fm radio, console, a/c, a 9" rearend, or disc brakes. That alone is about $1500 in parts. Not saying that it does have that, but it might.

When I spot a Cougar in a junk yard, I get excited.

Seems a little high for a Wisconsin car (read: [color:"red"]RUST[/color] ). However, it's got a toploader, so there's a grand by itself. It also may be savable, so who knows. Feeling energetic? Deal him down to 1900 (have the cash in hand) and you've got yourself a nice project!

Next line is "wait on the corner"

Don Williams I think.

Does that mean wait for the price to drop? I'd offer $500, might get that out of the parts and little more.

Let me explain...Art and I caravan to Pensacola for the MCA show last Spring. We stopped at a gas station, me in Coppertone, he in CougArt. We're both standing at the counter when the lady asked who's convertible? I answered "mine". Then she asked what year the Buick was behind me I teased Art all weekend about that. ::

Ah, OK. You're forgiven, then.
