Nothing yet. I've spent most of my money on restoring the car from its previous condition.
So far I've replaced: Front suspension, brakes, wheels, tires, all lights, misc. dash pieces,
stock radio, all door window trim and weatherstripping.
Future: Paint (two-tone, close to stock). Keeping this car as close to stock as possible.
This is my fourth Cougar. My first car was an '86 which I bought in 1998. Two years later it
was replaced with an '88 XR7. Another two years passed until I found a '96 XR7. Owning an MN12
for two years had me badly searching for another Fox. I could hardly stand it. I knew about
this car through a friend, and after several months, I was able to purchase it and drive it
home. I consider this car to be rather rare because of it's unique list of options for a
1986 Cougar XR7: T-5 manual transmission, leather interior, dual manual seats, vent windows.
As far as owning the car is concerned, I'm in love with it. The main reason why I bought this
car is because it had a 5-speed from the factory. I wouldn't have it any other way, period.
I'm in the long process of restoring the car. It will remain almost totally stock, save for
the '87+ intercooler and hood. The 10-hole rims will be refinished and I will shoot it with
a fresh two-tone paint job within the next year.
