1969 Mercury Cougar Blacked Out
Up for your consideration is a 1969 Mercury Cougar base model that has been transformed into a black Eliminator recreation.
This Cougar still has its original drivetrain from its 351 Windsor engine to the FM 3 speed transmission and rear end.
Power steering, manual drum brakes.
I bought this car from a private seller and I planned to do work on the car for some time but things change and I won’t have any time now. To be very honest, this car needs a lot of work, as stated beneath. If you want a project, this is it.
The 351 engine works very well. New valve cover breather and a PCV Valve. New carburetor. Edelbrock Performer intake manifold 4bbl. Recent timing chain. New
Fuel pump, need some work. New transmission cooler. The radiator was hot tanked and pressure tested. Red hose replacement from heater core so someone has replaced heater core at one time. A new gas tank and sending unit also have been replaced. New rear end fluid too.
A updated rear Turn Signal Brain was bought from Ken's Cougars. Interior lights work. Wipers work. Heater motor has been intermittent. New windshield also.
Rare Factory Correct Rally Rims for 69/70 Cougars. Old Goodyear Eagle ST's which still have the blue Factory Paint in the grooves and the knobs on the side. This Cougar even has a full size rare rim spare with a new Eagle ST on it.
New year correct center caps with new chrome trim rings. Tires are 215/70/14's.
The information about the Body comes from the previous owner.
The body of this Cougar has been ground down to bare metal. DP-90ed and several coats of high build primer was applied. Block sanded and looked at and then more high build primer to get car very straight. Then 4 coats of DUPONT'S Ultra Jet Black was applied. The darkest of dark blacks. Then numerous coats of clear coat. Color sanded with 800 grit sandpaper. Then 1200,1500,2000. All work was done professionally at local place. The Cougar was then compound buffed after the color sanding then polished and then micro polished. The Eliminator decal kit was then applied correctly.
This are the things I know that needs to be done.
