1969 Kumpf / Kenz & Leslie Special Cougar

1969 Kumpf / Kenz & Leslie Special Mercury Cougar

The Kumpf / Kenz & Leslie Special Cougar was another special Cougar sponsored by The Kumpf Motor Company in Denver.

This Cougar was a 428 car made up by a local shop called Kenz & Leslie. (They also set a land speed record using flat head V8 in a streamliner type car). Ed Leslie was the same person who drove for Team Cougar.

Kenz & Leslie BG logoWe suppose they used Kumpf as their performance shop / supplier. They also had a 1969 Cougar funny car sponsored by Kumpf and Wynns with the number 777 on the side.

The dealership has since changed hands and Kenz & Leslie now sells BG products wholesale. BG Products, Inc., manufactures and distributes high quality additives, cleaners, specialty lubricants and the professional equipment used to service vehicles all over the world!
