Abandoned 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT

After years of neglect, this is what happened to a once very cool 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7. Looks like it might have been partially restored at some point, then just sat for years slowly rotting away.

After driving past this relic numerous times, I though it was finally time to snap some photos. Looks like the owner removed the original vinyl roof at some point.

You can see how the original foam dashboard pad had dried out and split in the middle, with the two halves rising up to a peak.

The body contained numerous semi-repaired rusted panels and the interior had that old car smell of moldy vinyl and ancient carpeting.
