1968 Mercury Cougar XR7-G
with power sunroof
Except for a few 1967 models, the 1968 Mercury Cougar was the first production Ford Motor Company automobile to offer a factory power sunroof as a regular production option. Sunroofs were available on the 1960 Thunderbird and the 1967 Thunderbird Apollo, but the 1960 version of the T-bird used a manually operated sunroof panel, and the 1967 cars were built to special order. Hot 1968 Cougars to look for include the XR-7G (shown at left), the GT-E, and the Dan Gurney Special.

Cougar continued its position as the most luxurious car in its class, and provided luxury features like concealed headlamps, sequential turn signals, and bucket seats as standard equipment. Leather seating surfaces were included on some models as well. Cougar's elegant lines and sporty styling made it stand out from the pack, and the new models and options introduced in its second year made it impossible to ignore.
