1977 Mercury Cougar - Easton PA
« on: July 15, 2012, 11:52:10 AM »
There is a red 1977 Mercury Cougar with a 351W engine for sale in Easton, PA.  This is not my car.  It has less than 92,000 miles.  The owner says he wants five.  The car is garage kept.  I was not able to inspect it for rust.  I have the VIN.  He says it runs but, the battery was drained when I arrived.  He has since charged the battery.  Please PM me for additional and/ or contact information.  Here are pictures:








The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

A four door cougar ???  :nono:

I think somebody took a LTDII and made a Cougar.

But I could be wrong.

I worked for Ford for 20 years.

The serial number will tell.  V.I.N. NO.#

i'M CURIOUS......what did you guys find out

That year Cougar and Thunderbird share the same platform as the LTD II.  In 1977 the XR7 was a 2 door Cougar

It is a Cougar.  I saw the owner a few months ago and he told me he was still trying to sell it.  He told me he he wanted to get it out of his garage.

Here is the info:
Location:    Easton, PA
Name:       Charles Massy (610) 417-0417

Notice  that I didn't say it was definetly not a Cougar

I know better

Hell in 77 I was just a kid.

  I do remember a 78 XR7 that we had.

ok thanks for info

My friend just got >>>>>>someone gave it to him.
A 1963 Corvair Van

Never seen one of these.
I have to go research it now to see how many were produced.
It's not a rust bucket either.

I had a 77 LTD II.  Loved the car.  It was a good driver.  I put well over 250k on it.  Never let me down.  The Cougar reminds me of it... 

Too bad I do not have the space for another project.

The LTD II was my first Ford.  It was such a nice car...  Because of the gas crunch Ford never made a car like it again....   :'(
