68 Cougar GT

Recommended Posts

Here is another one I finished up this year. I have been focusing heavily on stalled projects. This one was a restoration that took a few built up projects to restore this one. I bought enough 67-68 AMT Cougars over the years and I needed to get one finished. I have one more 68 and a 67 to build still. This one is pretty much all stock 68 AMT kit that was restored and rechromed by Chrome Tech. Mirrors are from the AMT 67 Mustang GT kit and I need a few more of them!

Absolutely gorgeous !! Bravo !! Black never works well for me so I avoid it, have never had any good luck with black. But it looks perfect on that model and brings it to life !! Awesome save and restore

I especially like the subject and how you restored the kit. I wish this could or would be reissued.

Very nice. I love the black paint and the redline tires. I think it makes the car look like it just came off the showroom floor.

Wow, the black paint job looks flawless! Always nice to see a Mercury Cougar being built, and restoring glue bombs is fun so I really like this one. Everything looks just right. Those redline tires are a nice touch.
