The Mercury Cougar was all new for 1969, and this Competition Orange Eliminator was one of the top cats.
This example from the Brothers Collection is powered by the torquey 390-cube V8, and delivers plenty of tire-roasting power.
he Cougar is actually the Mustangs older brother, with longer and wider body, while the engines remain the same.
But overall it looks incredible with his sport and aggressive body and for sure is one of the best muscle cars ever produced.
The sleek notchback coupe’s full-width front grille and sequential taillights made it a standout and it was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for 1967.
