This red 1968 Cougar GT-E is one of only 356 produced with the single 4-barrel 427/390 HP V-8 engine. Available for $1,311 over the standard Cougar or XR-7, the GT-E combined big horsepower with Mercury style and luxury. In addition to the 427, the equipment list was impressive: Super Competition Handling package, mandatory SelectShift Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission, 9-inch rear axle, power steering, power front disc brakes, “power booster” engine fan, low-restriction dual exhaust and chrome engine dress-up with open-element air cleaner. Appearance-wise, the GT-E was identified by its two-tone paint with argent on the lower body, blackout grille with unique horizontal trim bar, non-functional twin-nostril hood scoop, black tail-light trim, quad exhaust tips, styled steel wheels and “7.0 Litre GT-E” fender emblems.
