“1930's Chique or Eighties Escapism? (The) Tiffany Coupe is Rare” – Motorious, May 2019
“Modelled as the Tiffany, this Mercury Cougar platform coupe appears as the of the type of car piloted by Cruella De Vil. Built until the early nineties they are few and far between, with this model being one of the only offered by CMC to be factory built. Rumor has it that just 50 examples were produced, a speculative point that can never be proven as all documents relating to the company were destroyed.”
Offered here is a 1988 Tiffany Classic Coupe in very “chic” (posh) white over red. Produced by Classic Motor Carriages in Florida, this rare, up-to-date, original California automobile's odometer currently reads 22,726 miles. Beyond the very low mileage, the condition of this special vehicle indicates it was always treated with care by prior owners.
While the graceful fenders, twin side-mounted spare-tire carriers, sloped classic grille, and relatively low roofline may draw inspiration from historic automobiles like the Mercedes SSK, the Tiffany Classic Coupe makes its own impression, and in doing so turns heads. With the four air horns in front and the strapped luggage compartment out back, the car makes a statement coming or going. The exterior white paint shows well across the sculpted, flowing, fiberglass body: excellent gloss, and smooth-as-glass finish. The impressive chrome treatments on the car include the canted front grille, 6 faux, hood-side-exiting exhaust tubes, freestanding headlights, twin-bar bumpers fore and aft, spare-tire-carrier trim, mirror caps, and door handles, all of which exhibit high shine. Tinted cabin glass and all lighting lenses are clear and free of damage or cracks. Factory emblems include the “CMC” wreathed hood ornament, similar trunk emblem, and a “Classic Tiffany” script badge on the lower rear. Chrome 15-inch wire wheels (with CMC-emblem center caps) are mounted with whitewall-with-gold-stripe tires.
Inside, the bright, red color theme is arresting. Horizontal-design, red leather upholstery covers the front buckles, front armrest, and rear bench seat, all under a red headliner. Red carpeting is in place on cabin floors, and red door trim includes carpeted lower kick panels. A black, CMC-branded, multifunction steering wheel frames a digital instrument panel including both tachometer and speedometer as well as a trip computer. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. The woodgrain-trimmed center stack hosts the Ford-branded radio and climate controls while power-window, mirror, and door-lock switches are forward of the center armrest.
Under the hood, the 5-liter, fuel-injected, Ford V8 commands a clean and stock engine bay. All components—including air conditioning—are properly installed with no evidence of performance modifications. Viewed from below, the Ford running gear is complete. The Tiffany's original identification and information tags remain as mounted at the factory. A full complement of owner literature is included in the sale.
