Found this one was listed on Craigslist as being offered for sale by the owner in Eugene, Oregon. With this red exterior over the white vinyl interior, quite the eye-catcher on the road. The 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 convertible carries a 351ci Cleveland V8 paired with an automatic transmission, which only drives 52,800 miles. This second generation of the Cougar was based on the Mustang platform, and the wheelbase was lengthened an inch over the previous generation. Styling was changed to resemble the larger Mercury Cyclone, including an aggressive center grille with four round headlights.
It would be one of the most desirable Mercury classics offered today, a taste of a Mustang with a completely different face, and also one nice car of the muscle cars' golden era.
