This is not a rat rod So I thought I should post it here. Some of you might have seen the pics of the cougar we hauled for a customer a while back. Same day we got the merc-cruiser. Well I took some time yesterday to do a little work on it. It hasn't been started in 20+ years.

Year is a little video of the journey

That looks like it's in great condition. Always liked the Mercs of that era.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

It is a really rust free car. The plan is to do a sort of resto mid build on it. Nothing over the top. Leave the paint and redo the interior. Wheels tires and a little suspension work.

Found out yesterday from a cougar aficionado that this is a rare car. It is a 1 of 6 cars with the white interior and orange exterior, then this is the only one that had that combo that was not a hurts Rental car. Those 5 had sunroofs
