1962 Ford Cougar 406 Concept

Posted Friday, November 9, 2012
Debuting at the 1962 Chicago Auto Show, the Ford Cougar 406 concept vehicle featured top-hinged, electrically operated gull-wing doors, and came equipped with the new 406 cubic inch V-8. The engine developed 405 horsepower and 448 pound feet of torque. Swing-up headlights were concealed in the tips of the front fenders. This was the second Ford concept car to wear the Cougar nameplate. The original was a 3/8-scale model from 1956. Mercury first applied the Cougar moniker on a 1967 two- door hardtop pony car, based on the Mustang.
