The GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1 of 1 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT-E for your consideration. This Cougar comes in a Grecian Gold paint job complemented by a Nugget Gold leather interior. This XR-7 comes with a 427ci V8 paired with smooth automatic transmission. Making this Cougar so rare is the 3.50 rear end, center console, vinyl roof, Parchment roof, Grecian Gold paint, and Nugget Gold bucket seats. For 1968, the GT-E was introduced above the Cougar GT. Offering a racing-derived 390 hp 427 V8 (paired solely with a 3-speed automatic), the GT-E received its own badging, quad exhaust, and a redesigned grille; power front disc brakes were standard. As a running change, the 427 engine was joined by a 428 Cobra Jet as an option, the latter was officially rated at 335 hp. A total of 394 GT-Es were manufactured; of which 357 were equipped with the 427 and 37 were built with the 428CJ. Please call or email us today for more information.

Mercury Cougar is a nameplate applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by the Mercury division of Ford from 1967 to 1997 and from 1999 to 2002. While the nameplate is most commonly associated with two-door coupes, at various times during its production, the Cougar was also marketed as a convertible, four-door sedan, station wagon, and hatchback.
With 2,972,784 examples produced, the Cougar is the highest-selling nameplate ever produced by the Mercury brand; its 34-year production is second only to the Grand Marquis in the Mercury model line (produced for 36 years). During the 1970s and 1980s, the Cougar was closely tied to the marketing of the Mercury division; Mercury advertised its dealers as "The Sign of the Cat" with big cats atop Lincoln-Mercury dealer signs.1 In line with the Cougar, several animal-related nameplates were adopted by the division, including the Bobcat, Lynx, and Sable.
