Am I the only one that noticed in the Lubriplate ad that depicts a 1968 Cougar, that the grille has 3 horizontal dress bars? No horizontal dress bars would be 99.9% of the Cougars, 2 bars would be the very rare GTE with a medium riser 427, that package was a $1250 option, a lot of coin in '68, hence as rare as the 426 hemi for Mopar folks, but what is with the 3 horizontal dress bars?

Hey Bob,

My guess is they were probably trying avoid any licensing issues by changing up the grill. So while it resembles a Cougar, its not exactly a Cougar.




Here is one for today. Though it has enough technical merit to be posted in the Transmission forum, the nostalgia factor won over:

And it didn't take engineers too long to figure out if they used curved vanes they could speed up the oil and exert more force (torque multiplication) and have a torque converter.
