This is a freshly restored 1969-70 original stainless steel deck lid moulding. It has had all minor dings and creases it may of had professionally removed and has been polished to a mirror like, better than N.O.S. finish. This will also fit perfectly on your 1967-68 in place of the original aluminum trim and will look brighter and be less prone to damage. The down side to installing this on your 1967-68 Cougar is that it will not match the aluminum corner mouldings perfectly. Seven clips are used to install the deck lid moulding and we have new clips available here.

I just received my rear deck lid trim piece for my 69 Cougar. It is absolutely first class merchandise. I installed it and it looks great! The packaging was very secure in the PVC pipe. Great idea! Thank you and it's always a pleasure doing business with you guys. Everything I get from you guys is excellent quality. You are always honest over the phone and I greatly appreciate that. I really don't like purchasing something without seeing it first hand, but I can honestly say I have no doubts after I speak with you. Thanks again and I will be in touch with any future requirements." Mike V.

"...Don - Happy Fourth of July. I wanted to send a note to your team of gratitude for all the help they provided me over the last three years restoring my Cougar. As you know, it has been in my family from the day it was purchased in Salem. My Grandfather sat in every car in the lot until he found one that he liked, and purchased it for my grandmother. A few years ago they both passed, and I was in Afghanistan when I gave my Grandfather’s Eulogy. I missed showing them the restored Cougar by about five years. They meant a lot to me, and I just really wish they could see it now. I’ve owned it for almost 20 years, taking it from assignment to assignment without the time or the means to restore it until now. It was with my father in Tennessee, and he told me to come get it or he was going to sell it. I remember sitting in the back when I was 12 years old waiting for my grandmother at the grocery store, so I just couldn’t let it go to someone else. My grandmother was pulled over for speeding too many times to count in that car and ran it out of gas a dozen times or more. I remember the only thing my grandfather changed on the car was that he added power brakes. That stuck with me as a teenager, and I’m glad I listened, because I had to change out the manual brake pedal after I destroyed one of your refurbished brake boosters. Darrell helped me figure out that I was putting stress on the booster with the wrong brake pedal. My grandfather must have jury rigged it somehow with the original brake pedal. There are a few pieces that I have left to do, but it is about 99% complete. It would have been impossible to restore it in this condition without the help of WCCC. The most important thing about your shop is the knowledge of everyone working there. Without the help of your videos and discussions with your team, I don’t think I would’ve completed this project. It is pretty much a complete car as it was in late 1969. I have upgraded the radio to Bluetooth (done by Mr. Tayman) but it is still the original Philco radio. I also added a tachometer, which I know is not original. However, these upgrades were important to me, so I made the subtle changes. To date, the car has 76,000 original miles with no engine change. Sorry for the long note, but I wanted to let you and your team know how important this was for me and I really appreciate their support. If I had time, I would love to drive through Oregon and see your shop. It would be nice to bring it back to Salem.
Thanks again, Darryl..."
