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 6 you'll find three vehicle features highlighting CCOA's President, Gavin Schlesinger's 1968 Cougar XR7-G, a 1969 Cougar convertible originally imported to Australia in 1969 and a 1973 hardtop owned by enthusiast owner who happens to be a woman and races her Cougar. And Co-editor Bill Basore looks back on the Cougar's battle with arch rivals, Ford's Mustang and Chevrolet's Camaro, for the 1967 Trans Am title.Biographie de l'auteur :
