MERCURY COUGAR

NOT ALL PONY CARS FROM THE HOUSE OF HENRY WEAR THE FORD NAMETAG - NEVERTHELESS THEY CAN ALL GET UP AND GALLOP

The Mercury Cougar was announced in September 1966 and slipped easily into the space between Ford’s Mustang and Thunderbird. While still regarded as a ‘Pony Car’, the Cougar sat on a wheelbase 100mm longer than the Mustang’s and took styling cues such as its roof-line and concealed headlights from full-sized models like the T-bird.
