has a better idea...
a cool idea...Cougar.

Our new Mercury Cougar is one of a kind.
Cougar's elegant looks, superb handling,
and luxurious personal appointments are
equalled only by European cars costing
thousands more. From its retracting head-
light covers up front, to its sequential turn
signals in back, Cougar is dozens of Ford
Motor Company's better ideas in one.
Cougar's got the feel, the flavor, of the
true personal car. And that didn't just
happen. After all, Ford pioneered
the personal car, with Thun-
derbird, back in 1954.
Then in '64, we
introduced

for '67. There's an all new 4 door Thunder-
bird and a new Mercury Brougham, a more
luxurious Ford LTD, an even more exciting
