Picture 3, that's what exceptional patina is all about. See the dead bug on top?

1974, not 1975. The 1975-1976 Cougar has two cutouts in the front bumper. I heard once that this was because the 1974s were slightly prone to overheating. I don't know if the cutouts really help with cooling, but I will say that the 1974 Cougar I own (without quite this much patina) has overheated a couple times.
