1968 Mercury Cougar

Occasionally, an automobile company has some trouble coming up with a completely unique vehicle unlike any others on the market. After all, if it’s not a good idea to reinvent the wheel, it can sometimes seem that way about cars that are selling. Add in regulations on things like emissions, and creating a completely new model becomes quite difficult. In the 1960s, the Mercury division of Ford was having some trouble with their originality, at least for some models. The Mercury Cougar is a classic car which was originally based on the Ford Mustang when it was first built in 1967. It would later come to resemble other models, such as the Thunderbird.
