We proudly present our stunning 1971 Mercury Cougar XR7 Hardtop Coupe from 1 lady ownership solely driven in beautiful, sunny and dry Georgia its entire life.
Here comes an absolutely beautiful and true Georgia Cougar in excellent original condition inside and out considering its age of now 50 years. This beauty had only 1 documented and proven (lady) owner and has just 55K original miles on the odometer. It is one of the cleanest 1971 Mercury Cougars XR7 you will ever see nowadays. Seldom does it get any better, more authentic and original than this one.
This is the right Cougar to own with the right colors, right options and very low miles. This baby has looks that just don't quit!!!
This Cougar was purchased new directly from its first, last and Sole (lady) owner in Dahloneega, Georgia back in 1971. The Cougar was completely maintained and serviced all its life in in Georgia and always garage kept and has absolutely no signs of rust or damages (other than surface rust here and there). Upon meticulous inspection, you will easily see the authenticity, perfection and beauty of this amazing Cougar in every little detail.
It is almost fully equipped with all available options back then with the very sought after original 351C-4V Cleveland M-Code engine. The M-code engine was a high-compression, high-performance variation of the 351C, produced in 1970 and 1971. The M-code engines used the large-port 4V heads with a closed "quench" combustion chamber and large valves. These engines also included cast-aluminum flat-top pistons, stiffer valve springs, a high-performance hydraulic camshaft, and a squarebore Autolite 4300-A carburetor. The 1971 M-Code version has a compression ratio of 10.7:1, and the power rating has 213 kW; and 289 HP at 5400 rpm. The M-code 351C - 4V required premium fuel and was available in the 1970-71 Ford Torino, Mercury Montego, Ford Mustang and Mercury Cougar only. Fully dry-ice blasted, Epoxy sealed and painted undercarriage. Rear axle completely dismanteld and rebuilt. Complete service, check-up and big maintenance conducted.
We are looking forward to welcoming you soon to convince you that we haven't exxagerated with any single detail of the car.
