69 Mercury Cougar

Recommended Posts

Just finished up my AMT 69 Cougar Eliminater Kit this past weekend. As you can see I " Eliminated " the hood scoop and spoilers to make a standard Cougar to replicate my oldest brothers 1:1 he had back in the early 70's, I must have been anywhere from 10 - 12 years old. On one particular trip to our Grandfathers cabin in a snow storm we soon called it the Snow Cougar due to it sliding off the highway and down an embankment and being able to drive it back up onto the highway without stopping. An event and trip that we have never forgotten. I'm hoping brother Don approves of my Snow Cougar tribute build.

Back to the model, it's painted Model Masters Phoenician Yellow laquer and this is my first ever vinyl top painted with flat black sprayed from about 2 feet for the textured look. I'm kinda looking forward to doing another vinyl top. Thanks for looking and I hope it doesn't have to many Pet Peeves!

Looks great! I’ve been itching to put a vinyl top on something. When I find the right candidate, I hope it turns out close to as good as yours.

Very very nicely done !  I like the stock look you've done much better than the Eliminator .

Great job!  I am not much of a Ford fan, but that generation of Cougars were great looking cars.

Very nice clean looking build and the top turned out looking very realistic. I enjoy see the more common versions of cars like this once in a while.

Keith, that turned out beautifully.  I had much the same idea a few years back and built a replica of a neighbor's Cougar from back in the day.  This was also my first vinyl top attempt so your build brought back memories.
