The 1967 XR7 did not have rocker panel mouldings as did the 1968 - 1973 XR7 Cougars. All 1967 XR7 models came equipped with these "Hash" marks fastened to the rear of both rockers, at a rear tilting angle. Both sides received seven ribs, held by two Phillips screws each for a total of fourteen ribs in all. They were painted semi-gloss black in the recessed areas and the screws themselves were black as well. The leading ribs are usually pretty rough looking due to road debris wear, the one shown is about the nicest we will find on a parts car, the one you get will not look as good. We have reproduced these, check out our reproduction listing by clicking here

Customer Feedback 1-18-08: West Coast Classic Cougar ROCKS! You guys are the best for finding and sending out parts promptly. My '67 Xr7 is a family heirloom from my father to my mother and my brother all driving "Greeny". I've been restoring it for years thanks to WCCC. I'm the only family member still living and my Cougar brings the fondest memories of my family. I found a picture of the day my dad brought it home in 1967 recently. In the picture it had the stock hash marks on the rockers, someone over the years had aluminum rocker panel mouldings installed which of course is not stock for 1967. If you can send me a close-up of location and angel of hash marks I'll have the body shop do it right. Many Thanks, From my family to yours. James Kohler, Los Altos CA.
And thank you for your continued support and kind words! Your pictures of where to place the hash marks have been sent.
