Just got her started up today and driven round the field - runs beautifully but a marked lack of brakes!
As you can imagine after standing for three years it will need brakes and tyres doing but fortunately before it was put away it was undersealed so only one small patch of welding required :lol:
Bodywork lovely just dusty and a few cobwebs - should be on the road in a couple of weeks.

Well I guess it keeps you out of trouble!

It may be a Ford but I do like a good restoration story, so keep me updated.

Cheers mate. Big box of parts arriving tomorrow, might have a go at it on Saturday as it's the annual Cougarfest (no, that isn't what it sounds like :lol: :roll: )

Sorry for lack of updates on this.
Unfortunately i found both a serious electrical issue and a lot more rot on the blue Cougar, so now it has been stripped for parts.
However, the fleet has been extended in recent weeks with the addition of this

and this :lol:

Both now MOT'd and on the road.

Sounds like it's the car you've always dreamed of. I'd take £1100 for it seems it's you. Feel the wind in your hair? You've got more chance of that than me :lol:
