The 1967 Cougar was Mercury's attempt to enter the Pony Car market segment popularized by the April 1964 introduction of Ford's Mustang. Introduced in the fall of 1966 for the 1967 model year, the first-year 1967 Cougar exceeded all sales expectations with 150,893 units sold. It was selected as Motor Trend's 1967 Car of the Year. Legendary Cougar Magazine is dedicated to the first three generations of Mercury's luxury Pony Car. Each bi-monthly issue includes features on the first-generation 1967-68 models, the 1969-70 models, the first to offer a convertible version, and the final 1971-1973 models (after the 1973 model year the Cougar nameplate moved from the Pony Car class to the luxury-personal category). In addition to traditional, in-depth vehicle features, the issue contains two tech stories. In issue 3 you'll find three vehicle features highlighting standard Cougars were never officially exported outside North America. Yet that hasn't stopped Cougar fans from buying, importing and restoring Cougars. The fifth issue of Legendary Cougar Magazine introduces a new department, Cougar Marketplace where our team of Cougar experts will track recent market activity. With high-profile auctions in Arizona and Florida, there was much to report. This month's features showcase Scott Ferguson and Heather Whitaker's 1969 XR7-G, Steve and Zana Goulding's 1969 XR-7 convertible and Gene Mullenberg's 1972 XR-7 convertible that he's cherished for more than four decades.
