1970 Mercury Cougar
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The second series of the Mercury Cougar was introduced in 1969. It sat on the same wheelbase size as the original series, measuring 111 inches, but its body was wider and longer. It also offered two new convertible options. Styling remained similar to the 1967-1968 version, particularly the grille, and the XR-7s continued to feature a full set of needle gauges and leather-faced seat upholstery as standard equipment. The prior GT and GTE models were reduced to option packages available with or without XR-7 trim, and continue to house a big-block V8 engine.
The Cougar Eliminator for 1969 and 1970 featured a stand-up rear-deck spoiler, bright 'Grabber' colors, and prominent side stripes.
This car was sold for a mere $5,000; the buyer got a bargain.
