One of our long term Project Cars is about to come out of the garage. It isn’t complete but is nearly street ready for some shake down runs. This is the 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 CJ. It is an original 428 XR7 but has been blessed with a warmed up 428 CJ along with some suspension upgrades that remain from its days on the drag strip.
We still have a lot to do to this car but for right now we want to have some fun and put some miles on her. Here is a peak of what she looked like when we took her off the trailer and stored her away in our garage 18 months ago without an engine or transmission. She now has all that and more. You can listen to her roar below, just click on the audio button.
