Topic: Tracy's Cougar Interior Shots Please

Does anyone have any good interior shots of Tracy's Cougar XR-7, showing the gauges/instruments, console, steering wheel, back seat, radio, etc.

Does the car have power windows, which were an option? My build sheet does not mention it.

There is a white 69 Cougar for sale with nearly the same specification, except, what I can see, are lack of bumper guards (a factory option $13.00 in 1968) This car has power windows. A great starting place for a Tracy replica. You'll need the edge guards, bumper guards, new decals and pin striping, swap out the interior, and a spot of paint, and you are there...Oh and the $90K to buy the car. Good paint job is about $50K with engine out, inside the hood and boot lids, jams, etc. Would be a pity, though to change a highly original car like this one. Most of them became lowriders in the 1980s, when they were $500. (The 427 car were never cheap, tough)

Love to find that luggage rack and ski rack. Wonder if they are Ford or local (Swiss off the shelf) items?
My dad had a ski rack in the same position on his '68 Beetle, and I used to pretend it was a Cougar while going up to the snow in the early 70s. Hummed the OHMSS soundtrack as there were no iPods in those days. Drove dad insane!

Cheers, Tom

Too bad you didn't ask this a few months back when we were in Portugal/Switzerland with a near replica!

You might contact the IFF as they own the car currently (?) on display at BiM; surely they have interior reference photos.

I want to say the ski rack was custom but, again, the IFF would be your best bet on that info, too.
