We highly suggest you look at our mint condition used towers for about the same price. This tower is technically incorrect for a 1969-70 Mercury Cougar as it has no reinforcement plate. Cougar owners would definitely want to buy a good used tower instead of this reproduction. Keep in mind all Cougars came with reinforced towers in 1969-70 just as all 1969-70 Cougars came with the 9" rear-end. All Cougars also came with 351 or larger engines for those years as well, except for the 302 Eliminator.Here's a little film to help you fortify your flexxy feline!
