1968 Mercury Cougar Gay Toys Inc.
Made in USA
Manufactured in the 1960s by the Gay Toy Company of Walled Lake, Michigan.

This Cougar from Gay Toys Inc. is 11" long and 3 1/2" tall and is in used condition. Brand new they feature a plastic window insert and steering wheel, these are long gone. The plastic itself has scratches from playing and some of the paint on the rims shows wear. All said this is still a very collectible piece for any Cougar enthusiast.

These collectibles initially were a Mercury dealer product that later merged into the toy market.
Mercury dealerships utilized Gay Toys Inc. to advertise. A mail-away offer and direct-dealer placement introduced the new Cat in 1/18th scale. In this case, there was no third-party product involvement. One could walk into the Mercury dealership and acquire this soft plastic item or wait for one to be mailed to their home.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
