Custom Cougar

The Hot Wheels Custom Cougar is based upon the 1967 Mercury Cougar. Mercury’s pony car is a two-door hardtop that has a V8 engine and covered headlights.

The die-cast vehicle was a 1968 release that was designed by Harry Bradley. It features a lift-up hood, bearing redline wheels,and a variety of Spectraflame colors. Early releases can be found with a painted “tooth”, a strip of paint on the front grille.

Production was in the U.S. and Hong Kong with some differences. A U.S. car has a clear windshield and the steering wheel is part of the interior. The interior can be white, tan, or brown.

A Hong Kong car has a blue tinted windshield, an interior with a separate black steering wheel, and a base with suspension holes and “Hong Kong”. To simulate a vinyl top, some Hong Kong cars have a flat black painted roof. The interior can be white, brown, silver, or light blue.

Included with the car was a collector’s button. The button has a green Cougar on a yellow background and has a notched tab.
