Many moons ago, I purchased this red cougar, it was my first car with my own money. I had tons of fun in it, went everywhere, fixed it all the time, modded it slightly....
Then someone ruined it for me
I bought a silver one that then lit on fire a few weeks later...
Now several months later I am going to restore this car!
•Front Frame bent, impact passenger side.
•passenger side motor mount busted
•lower radiator hose broken
In mind I have the idea of, using my friends diesel f250, I attach a tow strap (or chain?) to the bent area. Put the car in neutral, hit the ebrake and the vacuum brakes (I can keep some accumulated from starting the car briefly before?) and that should pull the little bit I need out so I can work on that radiator hose?
The engine itself is still great, and the drivetrain & steering still works good. I’ve been moving it from parking spot to spot each day to keep it from getting towed...
As soon as I get it reliable again, I plan on going from there with upgrades...
Please let me know what I definitely should NOT do, and anything else I should do/ look out for.
