Two-Tone Paint Cougars
The Two-Tone Option was only available from 1967 to 1970 and could be ordered on any model except on the XR-7G, GT-E, and Eliminator.
A buyer could chose from array of two-tone color combos, but in 1969 and 1970 only two colors were available for the top; white or black. However, a buyer could special order a color combo of their choice.
If you own one of these unique Cougars and have not registered it yet, please send your contact information along with the VIN and data plate information, as well as any other documentation, stating it’s a factory two-tone and pictures to the address or email below so it can be accounted for.
As with vinyl top cars, Two-Tone Cougars had a strip dividing the top and body color. However, at this time, it’s unknown whether or not all two-tone Cats came with a chrome dividing strip or a color keyed vinyl molding as vinyl top Cats did.
Hopefully, as time goes on, more info will become known as to the dividing strip and it can be determined whether or not if all cars had the chrome strip or if there were a mixture of chrome and vinyl dividing strips.
