Thanks, I thought they might have been part of it, but forgot they were called Eliminators, I was looking for a XR7 models
I remember one 68 XR7G from my dealer days, Moss or Highland Green with a Maroon interior sunroof, a/c and a 302 four barrel beautiful. I also remember this one had a limited slip differential
Belonged to a little old lady who drove it like a little old lady
Know any Cougar Hertz owners who want to be part of the MCACN exhibit?
Owned since 1971, now driven over 240,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

FYI all the Hertz XR7-G's were 390 powered. The first batch of show cars were X code 390-2V automatic C6 equipped. All 188 of the production versions used to fill the Hertz order were identical in terms of options. All were 390GT engines with C6 transmission, power steering, tilt away, AC, AM Radio and power disc / drum brakes. All were non - metallic exterior colors at the request of Hertz. 

Highland Green with dark red (maroon???) interior is not one of the XR7-G color combinations produced either Hertz or non - Hertz. That would have been pretty ugly!

The closest I can find is a red XR7-G with dark blue interior and white vinyl top. Patriotic maybe?

I may have been dyed, as she always seemed to have a red/maroon interior. I remember changing seats from black to red on a colony park wagon she had in 1966. We did a lot of wheel, interior swaps back then it seemed
Know any Hertz Cougars who want to be part of the display ?
