I just bought a 1969 Cougar Xr7 to restore and need a passanger side fender, front valence panel, pretty much a whole black interior, a wiring kit, the upper 1/4 emblems(the round ones), and just about anything else you can think of

Congrats on your purchase!! Is this your first Cougar? I'm sure Kwazykat will be around shortly to welcome you and show you the way to some helpful sites. I've always found that a local club is a great source for needed parts. Welcome to M&M!!

hi daniel!

like sandra mentioned, local clubs are the BEST resource for pieces and parts...but, i would also invest in a coupla catalogues for reference:

ahh!

you will love your 69...i am sure once you get her going-on, her personality will surface.....gotta love those cats!

BUT...if you have problems, they are pretty easy to work on, easy to find parts for AND you can be forgiving since it is a beautiful classic.

keep us posted on your progress!

yeah i actually have it runnig right now but imslowly learning stuff thats messed up the person who owned it before me pulled the stock 3 speed and put a C4 in it but left in the clutch pedal and pulled the original windsor and put one it it from the late 70s. And since he parked it in 1996 all the seals are shot. squirrel's gotthe best of theback seat insulation i found it it the radiator core support. and a question, did the original radiator have the outlets on the same side or top onthe passanger side and bottom on the drivers side?

in late 69 they changed the water pump configuration on small blocks, to make the outlet on the other side. If you have a later motor it may not match your radiator. I believe you can get radiators in either configuration. I think you can change to an older water pump too.
