LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible

In 1969 the muscle car era war was in full swing. Wishing to remain competitive and sell more cars, the Lincoln Mercury division of Ford Motor Company decided for 1969 to push a sportier image. This advertising strategy was coined the “Streep Scene”, meaning the combination of “street and strip”. For the 1969 model year, Mercury introduced the new Cougar Convertible to their lineup. It could be ordered with a 351 Windsor engine with two or four-barrel carburetor, a 390 four barrel, or a fire breathing, pavement ripping 428 Cobra Jet Ram Air. Horsepower for the 428 Cobra Jet Engine was underrated by the factory at 335 for insurance reasons (400 is nearer the mark) and required a “Mandatory Option” of the Competition Handling package, which delivered heavier springs, shocks and sway bars.

This ultra-rare Mercury Cougar Convertible was delivered new to King Ford Sales in Milford, Massachusetts on October 10th, 1968. Factory painted in the Dark Ivy Green exterior paint with a Saddle interior and power Black convertible top, this Cougar has a timeless color combination. This car is one of the very few Mercury Cougar Convertibles ever factory built with the 428 Cobra Jet engine and 4 speed transmission. According to Cougar experts, Mercury produced  fewer than 50 428 Cobra Jet convertibles equipped with the 4-speed and only 1 ever built in this configuration. It came from the factory with the following options: 428 Cobra Jet Engine, 4 Speed Manual Transmission, Traction Lok Differential, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, AM/FM Radio and Head Restraints. It has benefited from a complete nut-and-bolt restoration by marque experts and returned this very rare 1969 Cobra Jet Mercury Cougar Convertible to better than factory condition.  Complete with beautiful wet sanded and polished paint, factory style batch primer with body color over spray, correct factory style paint dabs, stickers, chalk marking, tags and inspection markings. Highlighted by its matching-numbers 428 Cobra Jet engine with 4-speed manual transmission, the Cougar is of course fully documented as a factory Cobra Jet convertible by its Elite Marti Report and Lois Eminger report direct from the Ford records.

This Mercury Cougar combines the most desired features and checks off all the boxes collectors seek when looking to acquire and investment vehicle.  A convertible body style, the numbers matching 428 Cobra Jet engine, manual 4 speed transmission, no expense spared restoration that looks as good under as it does on top, full and complete bulletproof documentation and to top it all off,  it is a true 1 of 1, the only one built like it!
