BACKGROUND: Mercury Cougar is a nameplate applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by Mercury from 1967 to 1997, and again from 1999 to 2002. The Second Generation Cougar (1971–1973) was restyled, weighed less, and had only a one-inch-longer wheelbase than its predecessors which was similar to GM's intermediate-sized two-door models, such as the Olds Cutlass). The front end now featured four exposed headlights; the disappearing headlights were eliminated. The center grille piece was now larger, sharing its appearance with the 1971 Mercury Cyclone. (Source Wikipedia).
