Todays auction is for a very rare 1968 Non GT Dan Gurney Special Mercury Cougar. The fact that this is an S code without the GT package is what sets it apart from all the other Cougars on eBay. This is a true 1 of 50 390 4V S code Dan Gurney Special as shown in the Marti report. You can find many more XR-7s with the big block option. This one is going to be sold with no reserve and will go to the highest bidder, f I do receive an offer that I think is truly an offer that would represent fair value of the car I do reserve the right to stop the auction and let it go. Before making an offer please do your research and try to find another one like it, ou won’t this is one of one. The Sea Foam Green paint is a repaint in exact match of original paint. The Ivy Gold interior is un-restored; you won’t find a cleaner un-restored interior much less a cleaner restored one.

The engine compartment has been detailed to look showroom new. The engine and transmission are original to the car and are correct matching numbers. The A/C compressor has been changed to a modern Sanden unit for better efficiency. The original compressor and brackets are included with the sale of the car if the new owner wants to put it back. The 4150 Holley carburetor on the car right now is non numbers matching but will try to locate the correct one in the shop before the auctions end, f found it will be included in the sale. All the chrome on the motor is original to this Cougar, es they built pretty engine compartments back in 1968. The hood blanket is new though.

As stated above the car has had a repaint, ut no rust is present in the car. This is truly a beautiful un-restored car. This particular car was one of only 22 factory equipped with the 390 4V/325 hp, 6 automatic, .00 locking rear. What a sleeper performance package for a Sea Foam Green Dan Gurney Special. You will not ever find another with these options or one in the condition because this is the only one like it. Even the factory door edgeguardsare in the box in the trunk.

Now for the must read part. A 1000 dollar deposit through PayPal is due within 24 hours of auctions end. The remaining payment must be made within 72 hours by bank wire or certified funds. I will be happy to store the car indoors where it has been kept its entire life for 30 days free of charge.
