’67 Cougar fastback

Ever since I laid eyes on the first Cougar in 1967, I wondered why Mercury didn’t offer another body style, besides the notch back. They didn’t even offer a convertable til 1969. But I’m a fastback man all the way, to me nothing is sleeker than the fastbacks.

So I had to see what one would look like. I did a ‘69 Cougar Elminator II with a ‘69 Mustang Sport Roof in 1998, that’s posted on my brother’s Hub garage “Fastlaner Garage”

But I hand rendered that and it took hours so with Photoshop at hand I whipped this out in a short time.
Let me know what you think. I have another variation on this one in mind that I may do at a later date but for this week’s Restyle I give you the XR-70, the alternate body style Cougar they should’ve built.
