First post, please be gentle!!!

Hello.
I have in my possesion a Ford Cougar, T registered, silver, 200,000 miles.
lucky me, you might say. Any way it's an automatic but the transmission is shot, the car does still move, sometimes!
The engine sounds amazing but there is an oil leak (crank seal I think (I 'aint no mechanic though!))

The car is complete with no damage apart from a chipped windscreen.
There is very little wear on the interior considering the mileage, it's surprising, I have a Vectra (sshhh, dont tell any-one) thats done half the mileage, but the interior has'nt stood up half as well.

I did try to register on cougar.com, my account is still inactive after about a week, so here I am.

Any way, what should I do with the car, sell it as it is, strip it for parts, fix it?

If I repair it, will an engine and transmision from a mondeo v6 fit??

What do you people think the car is worth now and back on the road??

Thank's in anticipation.
Steve
thats alot of work needed, plus high mile engine.. could open a can of worms.

I think breaking for spares would be the best option.

I agree with steve, breaking is your best option....... i can help i'll bring my sledge hammer round :D

Break it for definate. Cougar parts are hard to come by so i should think there is a fair bit to be made by breaking it.

Def break it, you'll porbably make more from the parts than the car, you'll spend alot of money on parts and find you wont make much back
