The Ford Mustang’s luxurious cousin, the Mercury Cougar, is often sadly overlooked in the collector-car world. Even with their luxury styling, Cougars never won the hearts of as many enthusiasts as the everyman’s pony car did. However, they still remain under-appreciated, underrated, and somewhat undervalued.
With this in mind, we always take notice when a Cougar brings good money at auction, especially one as special as this 1968 Grecian Gold Poly XR-7. The car is a surprisingly original example with well over 100,000 miles on the clock. This car was no garage queen. In fact, was driven daily for years From looking at the Cougar, you would expect a complete restoration it only received light cosmetic and suspension restorations and still retains most all of its original parts.
The car sold at no reserve on bringatrailer.com for an impressive $30,250 dollars. You can check out the listing for yourself here.
