Here is our used passenger (right hand) side hood lip moulding / trim in grade "B" condition for your Mercury Cougar. This is a tough little unit to find in NOS form or grade "A" condition. Most of these will come with some pitting or minor scratches in the chrome, but will look great on your mid-level daily driver. You can save quite a bit of cash-o-la if you purchase this item in our 3
piece set that comes with the center and driver side mouldings. If
you choose to purchase the set, you will need to select the correct year for
your Cat. This is because the 1973 center moulding features a "walking
cat" emblem and is much wider than the 1971-72 version.
