Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this 1971 Mercury Cougar Convertible in our Saint Louis Showroom. Nothing is needed here. It's ready to immediately enjoy and priced to move fast.

BACKGROUND: With elegant styling and luxurious appointments, the Cougar debuted to the world as a gentleman’s alternative to the Mustang. For 1971, the Cougar was restyled, weighed less, and had only a one-inch-longer wheelbase than its predecessor. The disappearing headlights were eliminated in favor of a much bolder front end look with four exposed headlights. The center grille piece was now larger, sharing a resemblance to the 1971 Mercury Cyclone. The rear featured a semi fastback with a "flying buttress" sail-panel. The convertible returned, as did the XR-7 and the GT package. Enough about history!

This lovely example is equipped with a powerful 351 Cleveland V8 paired to a smooth shifting 3 speed automatic. The exterior of this cool cat is finished in a beautiful maroon color that would show perfectly in the evening twilight. The interior is outfitted in a gorgeous, bright white vinyl which has the effect of a clear back drop for the lucky driver and passenger. This is a car you want to be seen in! If you’re looking for a stylish Mercury Cougar that you can drop the top on and enjoy the summer breeze, call soon before its gone. Options for this 1971 Mercury Cougar Convertible include Air Conditioning, AM/FM/CD radio, power convertible top, power brakes, power steering, power windows, vinyl interior, and allow wheels.
