After 19 years of working on 1967-1970 Mercury Cougars as a hobby, and not being satisfied with the products available and their quality, a decision was made in 2005 to start Critter Creek Cougar Restorations. A signature component of the Mercury Cougar are the hide-away headlights that operate on a vacuum system. Mr. VacuumMan decided since he didn’t like what was out there he should just do it himself, but better. So began the process of recreating the 1967-68 Vacuum Actuators to maintain their authentic function with todays more durable products. Soon many aspects of the vacuum system were overhauled and improved upon, maintaining the authenticity for a concours restoration. Mr. VacuumMan holds the patents and tooling to rebuild
- 1967 – 1970 Mercury Cougar Vacuum Actuators
- 1967 Vacuum Solenoids
- 1967 – 1970 Vacuum Hose Kits
- Check Valves
- Grille Straightening Kits
- Headlight Grille Assembly Rebuild Kits
All have been improved upon to work for years to come by Mr. VacuumMan.
In addition to offering reproduction parts, Critter Creek Cougar Restorations prides itself on their reputation for their quality restoration of original parts. Many hours go into re-chroming, hand painting, and polishing to make the original part look like it just came off the assembly line of its era.
Now after 26 years working on and specializing in 1967-1970 Mercury Cougars, offering reproduction parts, restored original parts, and original used parts we continue to help you repair/restore your Cougar right the first time.
