Restoration Photos of a

1970 Cougar Convertible



Above photos taken in June 2003.




New color is still undecided.

The interior was ginger from the factory then the previous owner changed it to burgundy.
 We will be changing the interior to black with a black top.

Installed Motor - Found out that the motor mounts are unique...

If you have the original frame mounts, then the aftermarket motor mounts will not work on a 69 or 70 convertible with a 351W.  However, the aftermarket motor mounts will work with frame mounts from a  69 or 70 coupe with a 351W.

Changed frame mounts (used ones from a coupe).
