His name and image were used to promote the Cougar that first year with great success both on and off the track.

Mercury Cougar is a nameplate applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by the Mercury division of Ford from 1967 to 1997, Mercury Cougar starts with the Mustang’s platform, they stretched the wheelbase (for the Second Generation, it’s Similar in size and performance, of the Mercury Cyclone) for more rear-seat room and added plenty of luxury features to make it a more sophisticated alternative to the original pony car. This second generation design was taking on aspects of both sporty cars and luxury cars. The second-generation Cougar is the final version derived from the Ford Mustang and the final version offered as a convertible. Mercury didn’t skimp on the luxury. The top-of-the-line XR7 was lined with wood-grain paneling and had a range of options, including power leather seats, electric windows, and a factory-installed air conditioner. Disc brakes and a compliant suspension round out the package, making the car a good daily driver.
