Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Good used armrest with no cracks or cigarette burns. The lighter colors like aqua and white often need to be repainted as they show discoloration more often than the darker colors. The armrests shown were all taken from 1969- 1970 Decor and XR7 Cougars. Standard model Cougars did not have rear armrests in 1969 - 1970 Coupes. Unlike the 1967 - 1968 rear armrests the 1969 - 1970 rear armrests are far less prone to pulling away from their backing. These armrests are also a direct fit to your 1967 - 1968 rear panels (although not technically correct) and actually look better on non XR7 Cougars than what originally came on them as the texture is an exact match to the front armrests on the 1967 - 1968 standard and decor models (the picture of the 1969 installed armrest is of a 1968 decor rear panel). The picture shown is of a light blue 1969 driver side armrest installed on a 1968 Decor panel. The colors will not always match between 67-68 and 69-70 but many of our used armrests need to be repainted anyway. Unlike 1967 - 1968 rear armrests, we often have "almost" all colors in stock at any given time. Choose the color you desire and we will do our best to accommodate you.
In 1970 Mercury lightened the interior colors of Dark Green Blue and Red. If you have a 1970 please specify in the notes and we will try and accommodate.
*NOTE* We will trade two of our grade "A" 69-70 armrests for your one grade "A" 67-68 armrest. Just mail it to us with a note and your desired color and we will even pay the postage back to you!
