1967 Mercury Cougar

 

It didn't take the auto manufacturers long to realize the potential marketing bonanza that the Trans-Am race series represented. For the 1967 season, Ford stepped up to field a team of factory-backed Mercury Cougars, built and campaigned by the well-known Bud Moore of Spartanburg, South Carolina, and driven by Dan Gurney and Parnelli Jones. Mercury was a contender for the Manufacturers' Championship title right up until the last race, in Kent, Washington. A Cougar finish ahead of a Mustang would have clinched it for Mercury, but Gurney finished behind Ron Bucknum's Mustang. Final points tally: Ford, 64, Mercury, 62.
