1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator
Rare Professionally Restored Eliminator 428 Cobra Jet Automatic Air Conditioning /// Looking for a different kind of pony car? This documented Eliminator 428 is your weapon of choice! In May of 1969, this buff coupe was delivered to the hot and dry suburbs of Ford's Atlanta Ordering District. Then, as now, the car wore striking Bright Blue Metallic paint under White Eliminator striping that's a perfect complement to Dean Beck's peaked profile lines. And today, thanks to a detailed, professional... restoration, this surly Cougar rolls as a choice muscle car that was born to prowl! Hoist the hood and you'll find 428 cubic inches of legendary, date-correct V8 that looks as fresh as the day it rolled out of the restoration shop. Long regarded as one of the meanest MoTown mills ever created, Ford's fabled Cobra Jet utilized revised heads, heavy duty Le Mans connecting rods and a nodular iron crank to ensure blue oval pony cars remained the kings of stoplight muscle. Just aft of the legendary V8, a numbers-matching C6 3-speed spins a tough 9-inch axle that's finished with a Traction-Lok differential and big, 3.73 gears. A factory-spec suspension centers correct power steering between factory drum brakes. And at the edges of the car, power meets pavement through correct Argent wheels and F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas Custom Wide Treads. Between the doors, a correct Blue interior features correct Hi-Back vinyl seats. In front of those buckets, a monochromatic dash founds rebuilt factory telemetry next to correct Philco audio and correct Whisper-Aire air conditioning. A simple shifter is caged in clean carpet and correct, wood-trimmed DÃƒÂ©cor Group side panels. And the driver spins an ornate, wood-trimmed steering wheel. Documented, restored and ready to turn heads, this magazine-featured Eliminator 428 is a great choice for any collector who's looking for a fun classic that doubles as a great investment.
