1967 Mercury Cougar GT / "S" Code 390

Here is a example of Classic muscle that you don't see very often. This is a 1967 Mercury Cougar GT. This Rare Cat was ordered with the full GT performance package which included a heavy duty suspension and the S-code 390 with the Holley 4150 4 bbl carb that Ford commissioned Holley to design for this engine. Ordered with the optional bench seat made it even more rare because only 278 GTs were ordered with a bench seat! Only 9 of these cats are known to exist. The base price of a 67 Cougar was $2,851. This one, with the 14 plus options was $4,510.59 plus tax. Mercury Cougar was Motor Trend Magazine's 'Car of the Year' for 1967. The DSO on the door tag is 84 which means 'Home office reserve ordering district'. This Cat was not purchased from a dealership, it was ordered right from the factory by a employee of a company owned by Ford and delivered to to a dealership to be picked up by the owner.
