1967 Bud Moore Trans-am Mercury Cougar


Recommended Posts

My attempt at one of the Cougars built at Bud Moore's shop in Spartanburg about 50 minutes up the road.  It's not perfect, but looks ok on the shelf.  I used a lower-quality resin body, which was brittle around the windows, which is why the roof edges were sanded off.  AMT '69 Cougar chassis and glass (windshield didn't fit well), roll cage modified from the one in the '64 Mercury, 289 engine used from an AMT '67 GT-350.  All you see in die cast is Gurney's #98, so i I thought I'd do something different.

Yeah, Dave, wishful thinking!  I got the AMT 1973 Cougar street machine kit in today's mail mainly for the convertible top boot, and a surprise inside was a fuel cell piece.  Sanded it down a tad and will use it on that AMT '69 Cougar chassis I used.

I loved the late 60's/very early 70's era of Trans-Am.  Big time stars driving, factory participation (unofficial, of course!) and many iconic race tracks.  You did a great job of capturing the era with your work.
