Good looking Cougar. I've always thought those were some of the most underapreciated cars around. I had a 67 Mustang during high school but was always jealous of my buddy's 67 Cougar - same car but cooler (and far less common) styling and nicer interior.

That wagon looks like it's in fantastic shape. I think my parents had one when I was a kid. The tow hitch on the back just makes we want to throw all of my kids in there, hook up an airstream and drive cross country!

Love the sedanettes. The wheels are sharp too (not that I'm biased!)

What's under the hood?

It has a mildly built Gm 350 with a TH350 built with B/M goodies. The long range plan is to put in a Northstar, but I had the engine and trans already, and they were almost new, so I put them in to get it on the road.

I also put in a Camaro front clip, Camaro rear, and vintage air. (Really need that here in AZ)

You should have kept that f250 and I like the way those west coast jr mirrors look on those pickups.

I would skip the Northstar and go straight for a Cadillac 472/500 mated to a TH400. If EFI is one of your ambitions you can always do a MegaSquirt conversion or go for a '76 500 with rail injection.
