The 1967 Cougar was based on that year’s refaced first-generation Mustang, but with a 3-inch-longer wheelbase and new sheet metal. A full-width divided grille with hidden headlamps and vertical bars defined the front fascia—it was sometimes called the electric shaver grille. At the rear, a similar treatment saw the license plate surrounded on both sides with vertically slatted grillework concealing taillights (with sequential turn signals), a styling touch taken from the Thunderbird. The Cougar was Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year for 1967!
This ground pounding Cougar sports a monster 427! Sweet!
A tune along with a few new ignition bits and correcting a leak or two and she’ll be ready to shred tires!
