Wishing to remain competitive and sell more cars the Lincoln Mercury division of Ford Motor Company came up with a slogan for 1969 to push a sportier image. This advertising strategy was coined the "Streep Scene", meaning the combination of "street and strip". This theme was to join the 1969 Mercury model line up through the USA auto show circuit that year. With its Mustang under pinnings the cougar led the performance portfolio, and with certain options selected it could be a terror on the street or strip.
Mercury was still a more upmarket car catering to a different clientele than the Mustang ever would. Keeping this ideal but injecting performance resulted the offering of the 428 Cobra Jet engine as well as the XR-7 luxury equipment package. When combined with a Convertible body style mercury was able to offer a grand touring, luxurious convertible in the tradition of the world's best GT convertibles. Full of style and presence, loaded with luxuries, the 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7 with 428 CJ Ram Air led the way for those looking for a more refined muscle car experience.
