The shop where I work on my cars on the weekend currently has an original owner low miles survivor 1970 Cougar XR7 351C, Dearborn car. Owner is 82. If anyone is interested I can take detail pics of anything.

Engines (with and without air cleaner) Undercarriages (color of floor pans would help)
Trunk, seam sealer and finishes.
Must have a VIN ;) to place the car in production

These then to help out others the most as they redo cars

If he's interested in selling it on consignment contact Don Rush at West Coast Classic Cougars. He finds a lot of these cream puffs and knows how to get top dollar from a buyer who'll appreciate it.

I had taken a few pics but left on Sunday before getting Jeff's message. I'll get the requested engine compartment and undercarriage pics with it on the hoist asap. The car is not for sale.



















The trunk was full of stuff but I'll try to get some good pics of the interior quarter panels, trunk floor and back of taillight area. (He was listening to his 8track when it came in.)

OK so I got a chance to open the hood and take some pictures and low and behold it is a Cleveland. The reason for that is the car is a 1970 and not a 1969 (So I've changed the thread title.). If I had bothered to look at the serial number more carefully rather than just the engine code I would not have misidentified the car so my apologies. I took a lot of detail pictures and given that this is the concours forum, I will err on the side of completeness and post a lot, as I have time. If I post too many somebody just tell me to stop. To start a shot with two of my cars in the background (any guesses as to the orange car you can see only a sliver of in the bottom right corner?) and the first engine compartment pics:
