Find Of The Day: 1967 Mercury Cougar Dan Gurney Special

By  |

Cougars don’t always get the same recognition as the rest of the Ford lineup, which is probably an advantage for potential Cougars buyers, maybe not for the owners though.
The car is located near San Jose, California.

The Dan Gurney special Package was simply some added chrome and a window sticker with Dan Gurney’s signature, but the fact is the name is attached to this car adds to its value of only $6000.

On first looks, the paintwork is obviously faded in areas but there is no sign of any major rust and the fact the vinyl top is still intact shows restoration work in the past or someone. going through the ad., it shows restoration work has been attempted, but the present owners moved on to another project.

The 289 CU. 4V engine has many new parts, with a rebuild 500 miles ago.

The interior also looks in great shape with the dash looking as it should do as per the upholstery.

The ad does outlines some of the things that do need fixing such as – ‘tranny leaks, some slippage still driveable though, no radio (in the trunk), car heater is bypassed (was leaking), needs paint. ‘

The car also comes with a Marti report which will add to its value, but summing up everything here comes in at $6000, which means with a bit of work you could have a fine classic muscle car on your hands.
