1968 Mercury Cougar Coupe
Coupe Car for sale in Richland, Washington 99354
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

This car has been restored. Per Marty report it was originally a Dan Gurney Special in Wimbleton blue. It is now a darker metallic blue. I have never found any evidence of rust anywhere including vents. The paint job is great. It looks like it was stripped of everything before being painted including trunk, doors, jam areas, and engine compartment. It is like a factory paint job. It was sold in Southern California and as far as I could tell was always there. The 3500 miles is what is on the entire drivetrain. It originally had a 302 2V V8/C4 auto/3.00 differential.
