###SOLD###SOLD### Now this is truly a very special car.....

The first year of Cougar production, and this example ticked almost every box! and as documented by the accompanying Marti Report this gorgeous Cougar is a true One Of One car!
Not only is this stunning Inverness Green example optioned with the desirable XR7 Package, but it is also a genuine and very rare GT package car, and not just any GT.... but an S Code Big Block 390 4V GT with a factory 4 Speed manual transmission!!
According to the painstakingly researched and recorded history of this Rare Muscle Car, the story goes like this....
Manufactured in March of 67 at Fords Dearborn factory and sent to Star Lincoln and Mercury of Glendale California this Cougar was originally purchased by a Mr and Mrs Bill and Anne Wilkes, who brought the car brand new off the showroom floor.
Their beloved Cougar came to NZ with them when they emigrated here in 1971, and was first registered in NZ on the 29 April of 1971 with just 42k miles showing.
The original owners enjoyed this cherished car for another six years before selling her on to her second lucky owner, and after being mainly Auckland based with a few more caretakers over the next few years, the Cougar then roamed its way down South to Dunedin, and in around 2000 was purchased by another caretaker who would become its next long term owner and who in turn stripped the car back to bare metal and effectively cosmetically and sympathetically restored the car back to its former glory.
All of this history is documented with snap shots of the car over many years with many of the car fully back to bare metal prior to being beautifully repainted in its original stunning Inverness Green Metallic hue.
The Deluxe style leather interior has been fully refurbished too, and being a high grade XR7 this one has the full sports instrumentation, full length console, roof console with map lights, sports steering wheel, and is quite simply just a beautiful place to sit back and enjoy the tune of the Big thumping 390!
The most recent fastidious local owner of this well known and respected Cougar has maintained and fettled the car even further in his ownership, and it would be fair to say that this Cougar is now probably as good as it has ever been.
Beautiful chrome and trim adorn the exterior and look fantastic on the dark coloured body accentuating the lines of this magnificent Cougar to perfection.
Reluctantly this Cougar is being offered for sale today due to another purchase, so a limited opportunity to own what would have to be one of the rarest American Sixties Muscle Cars available today has presented itself for an astute purchaser...
A truly rare sixties American luxury Muscle Car, If you had a Cougar wish list could it seriously get any better than this one?

Call today for further information on this lovely old Cougar, this is a whole lot of car for the money, imagine what you would have to spend if this was a Mustang with these specs and details!
