The sun-parched interior is still complete right down to the standard-issue floor shifter. The XR-7 was the top level of Cougar opulence and included toggle switches (seen above the knobs to the right of the steering wheel), a tachometer, a trip odometer, an alternator gauge, an oil pressure gauge, and a map light. Externally, bright stainless rocker trim and specific emblems elevate the XR-7 above base Cougar hardtops (which carry body code 65D). For '74, the base Cougar was dropped, and all were XR-7 equipped.
